Training for the Tour Divide is coming along. When you take on something this big and you want to do it right, you must start planning way out. I have my handlebar packing setup, which is my sleeping system. It comes in at 3.7 lbs, not bad for a sleeping bag, bivy and mat along with the bags and straps to secure it to the handlebars. I have been getting out for some longer rides and tons of climbing. I still have tons of gear and bike setup to get and complete for the Tour Divide. Eventually, I will have that sorted, lots to think about and have when you’re alone on the Continental Divide for 2700 miles with no support. I will be attending the Huracan 300 next week, which is a 300 mile mountain bike race in a loop format in central Florida. I plan to do it as an ITT (individual time trial), which will be like the Tour Divide format. I’m using this as a training opportunity to sit in the saddle for a long time and get used to my GPS for navigation. All of this will apply to the Tour Divide. Of course, I will be aiming for a competitive finish. Cheers!
