As bicycle races go, the attractions of the Tour Divide are not immediately apparent. For a start, it is the longest mountain-bike race in the world, running nearly 3,000 miles down the Rockies from Canada to Mexico.

A good story of an amazing race, The Tour Divide, a mountain bike race from Canada to Mexico. A massive achievement and this is a no-frills and honest account of the trials and efforts involved. I would have liked to know a little bit more about the preparations and the kit, maybe with a few tips for anyone else considering it. But Howard is refreshingly honest about his feelings and frustrations, and there's plenty of interesting detail about the trail itself and the towns they visit.

There is no outside support which
