Adventure Cycling Association -
these guys made this awesome route a reality and have provided invaluable information about the route, preparation, and all aspects of the ride

Erin Garvin's Account -
in 1998, erin was the first girl to ride the entire divide route. her account is what almost single-handly made me decide to do this trip

Paula & Scott -
these guys did the route last year (2004) from south to north. check out the cool color-coded elevation profile of the ride

Kent Johnson -
kent did the ride in 1999 while raising money for the Parkinson's Disease Foundation as part of the 'Parkinson's Power Across America' campaign. kent's philanthropy is what inspired me to also dedicate my ride to a worthy cause (how you can help)

Ken & Rita -
ken & rita did the ride in 2000. they have tons and tons of cool pictures from their ride on their site. check it out and see some of the cool country that i will be traveling through
