For Paul Howard, who has ridden the entire Tour de France route during the race itselfsetting off at 4 am each day to avoid being caught by the prosriding a small mountain-bike race should hold no fear. Still, this isn’t just any mountain-bike race. This is the Tour Divide.
Running from Banff in Canada to the Mexican border, the Tour Divide is more than 2,700 miles500 miles longer than the Tour de France. Its route along the Continental Divide goes through the heart of the Rocky Mountains and involves more than 200,000 feet of ascentthe equivalent of climbing Mount Everest seven times.
The other problem is that Howard has never owned a mountain bikeand how will training on the South Downs in southern England prepare him for sleeping rough in the Rockies? Entertaining and engaging, Eat, Sleep, Ride will appeal to avid and aspiring cyclers, as well as fans of adventure/travel narrative with a humorous twist.

A good read
A very good read for anyone who likes books about cycling, the great outdoors, and adventure. The great divide race is a truly gigantic event, and this text does it much justice. It's quite refreshing to read an account from the viewpoint of a guys struggling just to finish the race (as opposed to a true contender).
