I read a book about the Tour divide last year, or more accurately it was two guys experiences of riding the route of the Great Divide all the way down through the USA.
NNow the link below popped up on my Faceballs news feed, looks like northern nutter Guy Martin is attempting it this year, makes interesting reading...
