Gentle Brook - Beyond the Divide, Tales from the Trail on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route

Gentle Brook, a non-profit established in September 1974, provides residential services, day rehabilitation and vocational training, supported employment services, and programs for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. They are based in Hartville, Ohio.
Norm Wengerd is the Chief Exectuive Officer of Gentle Brook, and an avid cyclist. In late August, we embarked on a bicycle-touring adventure to raise funds and awareness for the Gentle Brook organization. He's riding the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, a mostly off-road bicycle route of almost 2,700 miles from Banff, Alberta in Canada to Antelope Wells, New Mexico.

Norm is riding a Salsa Cycles El Mariachi Ti mountain bike. He has nicknamed the bicycle "Mabel," after a horse he had as a young man. Earlier this summer, he took advantage of our Bicycle Fit Service to make sure the bike was dialed in just right for him.

You can follow Norm's progress from the news/blog of the Gentle Brook web site:
