I am looking for a company for Great Divide, starting in Banff around 3rd July 2018. More or less the ´classical´ route (see https://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/great-divide-mount... )
Plan is around 50km/per day in more difficult parts and around 100 km in easier (on road) parts. Low-cost in terms of accommodation (tent) and food (stove).
I probably already have one ´team-member´. So we are two of us so far - myself and one British gentleman. Ideally I would cycle in group of 4 or 5.
Something about myself - Pros and cons:
I am chatty. Super chatty. So chatty that bears will hear us 10km away (Yes, I do only km - no miles, no feets, no other nonsense - especially no gallons)
I actually live and work in Banff nowadays so I am not going to´give up´ when finding out how much it would cost me to get to the trail-head. I live just by the trail-head. I do - literally.
Well, I do have experience with bears. I am not Bear Grylls but I have been close to some (incl. grizzly) and I manage to keep calm, say ´Hi Bear!´ and go home safely. Does not mean really anything but the fact that I wont give up finding out that ´there are bears in Rocky Mountains´ :)
I am funny (you have already figure out this :))
I do not eat animals. I dont - really. And I talk a lot about not eating animals. I even wanna write blog or something about ´How I cycled Great Divided without eating a single animal´ (if I will cycle it - maybe some animal will eat me). BTW no, I am not hipster. I dont eat animals since 1999. I come from Czech. In 1999 in Czech nobody knew what´s hipster and nobody knew is possible to live without eating animals.
I am Czech. I complain about beer everywhere I go (cause we have both - the best and the cheapest beer in the world - I mean both together - in one pint). Luckily enough I dont drink (I mean I dont drink much).
OK, leave me a message in here or on FB if you are still interested in spending 2.5 months with me on a bike.
