Preparation

Dress rehearsal

After many miles by air and land I have arrived at the starting line of the Great Divide. For logistical reasons I will start in Canmore, but I did the first leg yesterday from Banff to Spray Lakes on my mountain bike, unloaded…

It was hard. The trails were rocky and steep, the scenery just beautiful. Quite a contrast to the stunningly posh town of Banff. Bustling with tourists, one store after the after. That madness stopped right past the trailhead. Only a few runners and mountain bikers were on the trail, just for day rides, like me.

Tomorrow the real thing is about to start. Fully loaded into the wilderness, four days to the refueling place…

Stay tuned.
