Five of us (StmbtDave, Jim (a lurker), Failo (Mark), Cap, and myself) started out to ride half of the Adventure Cyclist Continental Divide Trail from Steamboat Springs, CO, to the Canadian border at Rooseville, MT. There are several CDT ride reports already on ADVRider, but this one is about our trip of 1200+ miles of the trail. I hope you like the pictures. We planned to take 6 days to ride the mostly-dirt trail to Canada, then ride slab for 3 to 4 days to get back home. That meant we had to ride just over 200 miles per day on the way up. We rode from Fort Collins, CO to Steamboat Springs the day before (Thursday July 26) through the Poudre Canyon (no pics, sorry). Three of us camped in an RV park outside the city. It rained almost all night, and Cap got a flat tire that night. But it was the start of the adventure. I’m not a great dirt rider, so I wondered the day before if I even could do this ride. Only a few of the sections were very hard, but 6 days of dirt riding challenged me.
