The Continental Divide Ride obviously goes from Mexico to Canada near the Continental Divide on legal motorized routes. I have never done it but as reported on AdvRider.com several adventure bikes do it each year.

I obtained the Active Log tracks from several riders who have done it. I then compared them deleting all wrong way turns and deviations and came up with an accurate set of tracks for the ride. I then cut the whole log into 18 tracks of less than 500 points each that are ready for download into 60/76 GPSs.

I also used Nat Geo Topo to determine where the actual divide runs. As you can see the classic ride does not go very close to the divide in many places.

I then started scouting a route that actually follows the divide as close as possible. I am done with NM and hope to get to CO soon.

This file has the actual divide. If you add these tracks to a file with the ride tracks you can see that the ride deviates in many places.

This file has the results of two weeks scouting in New Mexico to find a route that is as close as possible to the actual divide. It crosses the divide about 40 times in the stare of NM.

This file has 8 options. Some are optional Hard or Easy ways that you may want to take. It also has tracks for side trips to towns of interest. You can select 2 of these and download them and have 20 total.

You can also cut and past an option into one of the 18 existing tracks.

For those with new generation Garmin GPS like 62/78/Montana this file has 15 tracks of 2,000 points each. They are actual active logs so they are very precise.
