Great Basin aka Red Desert, Wyoming. Highly recommended to pedal through.

It's the Great Basin, Wyoming, where there's a whole lotta nothing and a whole lotta beautiful.

The Longest Singletrack Tour Ever - Continental Divide Trail
Awesome. Let me know if you want any info on routing and what is and isn't open to bikes. Or if you want it to be a big unknown adventure, I say have at it! Cheers and good luck!

That looks like a great paved road tour. But for any long distance trail you could come up with a parallel paved (or unpaved) road tour. That doesn't make it accurate to say the trail is open to bikes, and for some of us touring roads is emphatically not the experience we are looking for.

Gas station food mostly -- oats for breakfast, salami and cheese, rice and pasta dinners for dinner when we could find them. We definitely took a bunch of zero days. We actually had laptops that we shipped general delivery from town to town so that I could run my tracking business and Eszter could write while we rested here and there.

We could carry ~4 days food maximum. In reality we preferred to carry no more than 2.5 to 3 days worth -- just due to the added weight and corresponding increase in hike-a-bike.

Right, that's the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route (aka Ride the Divide, aka Tour Divide)... which Eszter has finished in under 20 days. The CDT is a different route, on singletrack, though as I said above, I highly recommend riding either, or both!

Thanks for the congrats. Eszter had a spare shirt, but, yeah we kept it minimal and did our best to avoid getting too wet!
