Read about part one of our Baja Divide adventure here: http://www.highlux.co.nz/2017/02/baja-divide-coast-to-coast/

Big thanks to Nicholas Carman and Lael Wilcox - this amazing couple have gifted something quite unique to the global cycling community by researching and promoting this ride - it's a special kind of bike packing experience.

Cheers Revelate Designs, Biomaxa and Kathmandu.

Wide open – sometimes desolate – spaces that only a large continent can provide are sometimes a feature of the Great Divide ride. Here's the Great Divide Basin: http://www.highlux.co.nz/2016/11/great-divide-wy-pinedale-ladder-ranch/
