Trip Overview

This blog will follow two totally inexperienced bikepackers, Geoff and Cam, and their journey from Banff to Mexico via the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. The route follows the Continental Divide, exposing riders to high altitude, diverse wildlife, and solitude. To learn more about the route, check this out. Randy will be the official bookie so get in touch with him if you'd like to place a wager on how far we will actually make it.

In the mean time, you can track our progress here thanks to our SPOT device.

This will be a site where we will try our best to post some pictures and stories along the way. Happy reading!

Day 4 - Fernie to Bayne's Lake

We had spent the night at the Raging Elk Hostel and met a few interesting lads.  We shared stories over some Nelson Breweries pints and pizza before crashing.  The morning arrived with a slight hangover and beautiful BC skies.  We decided to spend most of the day in Fernie as it was too nice a spot to simply bypass.  We got to air out our tents, do laundry, get some groceries, and enjoy ourselves.  After leaving Fernie, we pedaled to Bayne’s Lake camp site just before the national border.
Met six interesting ladies selling homemade lemonade.
