Tour Divide Days 10-13 : Wonderful Wyoming

by Andy Amick

Waking up to a calm sunrise makes for a great start to the day.  The colors and the calm of the morning more than make up for the cold temperatures.  Plus, I knew that this day would take me out of Idaho and into Wyoming, wonderful Wyoming.  It gets a bad rap from some riders. […]

Initial Reflections on the Tour Divide

by Andy Amick

The monster that is the Tour Divide is still too big for me to put into words. A month after finishing, I’m trying to process the ride in my own head. All of it reminds me of a story my wife tells about her grandma. One morning when grandma was making breakfast, she asked the […]

TD14: Day 23 & 24 (or, He Did It)

by Andy Amick

Tour Divide 2014 guest post by Kristi. He did it. He did it. Don’t get me wrong, we all knew he could do it. I knew once he started he would finish – that’s just who he is. But it’s one thing on the night before the race for me to tell Andy, “You got […]
