Tour Divide Planning Aids

Being that I’m also a Triple Crown thru-hiker I’m used to quality planning tools. After finishing the Bikepacking Triple Crown I realized bikepacking didn’t have quality planning tools available. The Project’s Planning Aids and Resources are our answer to this.

After 100’s of hours of research, 1000’s of keystrokes, more emails and phone calls than I can recall the One of Seven Project’s Tour Divide Planning Aids are done. They’re the ultimate planning resources for the Tour Divide. They contain everything you need to plan and execute your race/ride of the Tour Divide and most of the GDMBR. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in these then it’s probably in our Tour Divide Resources.

Do you find this page valuable?

Craig, I wanted to let you know that your bikepacking guides are incredibly well done and useful.

COVID-19

The COVID-19 virus is still a major concern and due to this fact there’s a good chance the borders still won’t be open. This would mean the race might be cancelled again in 2021. If the race is cancelled and you still decide to ride the route or portions of it, please research the current guidelines and restrictions of the areas you’ll be going through and respect those who live there.
As bikepackers we don’t want to be the ones creating negativity or further spreading the virus. Use caution and stay home if you can’t follow the rules.

DATA SHEET and TOWN LIST DIFFERENCES

The Data Sheet has the most info. It gives the distance, elevation +/-, average grade, maximum and minimum elevations, pavement sections, references ACA maps, bike shops, resupply options, and has key notes between two POI. Example: A and B, then B to C, and so on.

The Town List gives cumulative distances between POI. Example: A to B, A to C, A to D. The next section would be B to C, B to D, B to E, and so on. The Town List has distance, elevation +/-, resupply options, bike shops and key notes.

The Town List helps with not having to do the math to figure out how far away things are if they’re not the next POI.
