About the Book

BICYCLING THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE A Slice of Heaven, Taste of Hell “This story runs deeper than an amazing ride down the Continental Divide of the United States. The riders take their courage and faith to new heights as they compare their struggles up 12,000 foot passes to their bedridden friend struggling with cancer for his life. Along the way, you meet John Brown while learning about his bravery. You laugh at their exploits on other world tours with stories told around a campfire. This bicycle adventure offers the best for cyclists and armchair travelers.” Charles Blackmer “Ever ride a bicycle along a cliff face? Have you sweated your way up a Rocky Mountain pass? Have you rubbed shoulders with Lewis and Clark on their Corps of Discovery 1803 expedition? Did you ever meet the famous mountain man Jim Bridger? Have you set eyes on the Grand Tetons? Watched Old Faithful explode into the sky? How about water falling up? Can you imagine a natural rock bridge 103 yards long? On this ride, you’ll see all these historical figures, natural wonders and much more. This is a funny, compelling ride along the Spine of the Rockies.” Paul Warneke “This bicycle dream ride carries a bit of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. The author mixes hope with adventure, pain with courage and bicycling with mountains. John Brown, a friend left behind to battle cancer, provides guts and heart for his two friends who ride into the teeth of nature’s fury. Along the way, you’ll laugh, cry and gain new appreciations while pondering about the meaning of life. It’s a great read!” Jeff Rockford
