When it comes to Adventure Sports, Bret really does it all.  Mountaineering, backpacking, kayaking, adventure travel and more!  Today Bret recounts how he and his wife Bonnie reconnected and grew even closer as they trekked together in Europe.  The value of adventure sports goes well beyond just the adventure itself!  Thanks, Bret!

Adventures don’t always have to involve scrambling to oxygen depleted peaks or leaping from perfectly good airplanes. You could always have your adventure on your leather love seat which is mounted to a custom bicycle chassis. Brent Curry and his buddy Eivind did just that. Once their couchbike creation was complete in 2002, they set off on their comfortable pedaling tour of eastern Canada’s coastline.

The Tour Divide is over 2700 miles of self-supported time trial endurance riding along the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route stretching between Banff, Alberta, Canada and the US-Mexico border in Antelope Wells, New Mexico. The route was created in 1997 by the Adventure Cycling Association. For 19 years now, bike packers have tackled this route with top riders finishing in just over two weeks while others don’t make it at all. Jim Goodyear is on the show today to fill us in on the experience and mental test that the Tour Divide provides.
