After almost a year, it's finally time to reveal my new book The Divide. It's my personal account of riding the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, a route that runs from Canada to Mexico down the Continental Divide. Here's a brief synopsis:
How far would you go to answer a simple question?
After his final year at university, Nathan Doneen wasn't satisfied with the direction his life was heading. He had doubts … he had questions. In June of 2013, Nathan set out on his mountain bike to search for answers along the Great Divide, a 2700-mile route that traces the Continental Divide from Canada to Mexico… and he set out alone.
Thrown into the world of erratic weather, cramped bivy sacks, and overwhelming solitude, Nathan was continually forced from his comfort zone, putting his personal growth on steroids.
With both his future and past in mind, Nathan's revealing and honest account illustrates the challenges of the route—and life—and how it's possible to find the strength and courage to move past them.
This is also a good time to introduce the next big adventure. It's called the Mototaxi Junket. I'm headed to Peru along with two friend to embark on a race for honor and respect—our chariot: the Mototaxi.
Our roughly 2200 mile route will carry us across a substantial portion of Peru and will test not only the limits of our motor vehicle, but the limits of ourselves. To see what I mean, check out this video.
You can be sure I'll be writing about his experience, so stay tuned. In fact, if all my flights were on time, I've just landed in the city of Piura, Peru … so bring it on Mototaxi Junket!
Until I return to the northern hemisphere, read The Divide and let me know what you think!
