The Intermountain Connectors are here at long last! We’ve teamed up with the Adventure Cycling Association to release six routes linking our Western Wildlands Route (WWR) to the iconic Great Divide MTB Route (GDMBR).
The WWR was inspired in part by the GDMBR. Since we released it in 2017, riders have been asking for routes to link the two. After years of reconnaissance, they’re finally here.
You can use the Connectors to create loops with easier logistics or ride them as free-standing routes. Each one is a unique adventure in its own right, crossing diverse desert, mountain, and plateau landscapes.
The Connectors are non-technical riding, mostly off-pavement, created for wide and knobby tired bikes. Water sources and resupply stops are regularly available and detailed in route resources.
