A Dream Worth Living

Finding strength in the depths of struggle along the Continental Divide

Now Available!

On Friday the 13th, under a full moon and falling rain, Andy Amick completed the first day of the 2014 Tour Divide race. He climbed mountain after mountain, witnessed stunning sunsets, encountered the smiles and hospitality of countless people, crossed paths with a mountain lion, and rode through enough mud to last a lifetime. This is the story of one man’s dream to race the Tour Divide and his determination to reach the finish.

Merry Christmas Steven B - Three years ago, my father-in-law passed away on Christmas morning after battling Alzheimer’s. He impacted his family in many ways – teaching his kids the value of hard work, showing me how calmness and patience were better than my agitation, and teaching his grandkids about Pistol Pete and all things basketball related.
