The Route

The route is offroad for 95% of its length, crosses the Continental Divide at least 28 times, and includes over 60,000m (200,000 feet) of elevation gain. It’s a hugely ambitious trip, but if anyone can do it, they can, given Gracie’s distance riding experience on her coast-to-coast uni trip across the U.S. in 2006.
