The results are in for the One of Seven Project Tour Divide Rider Survey. The point of this survey is to help others plan and take some of the guess work out of riding/racing the Tour Divide. Not all of us who approach bikepacking have the same level of knowledge.
At the end of the day, those looking to race/ride the Tour Divide or GDMBR should do whatever works for them. At the same times those with less confidence or knowledge looking to others to confirm their own choices, should still test different gear to see what works for them. Nothing beats experience!
The hope is this survey will possibly make the whole process easier. Checkout our article on the Most Common Mistakes Bikepackers Make to further help with your decision making process.
The Tour Divide Rider Survey was made to be pretty comprehensive. If it wasn’t what would be the point. You’ll find almost all the questions asked to be ones people ask in forums. The issue of asking or finding the answers to those questions is removed by bringing them together here in one place.
By breaking down barriers and helping to get others outside, this survey is another of the Project’s targeted resources to help grow bikepacking.
