Norm Wengerd of Gentle Brook completes Beyond The Divide Tour

Last month, we wrote on this blog about Norm Wengerd. He's the CEO of Gentle Brook, a non-profit based in Hartville, Ohio that provides services for the developmentally disabled. In late August, he began a trip on the Adventure Cycling Association's Great Divide Mountain Bike Route to raise funds and awareness for his organization.

The mostly off-road route begins in Banff, Alberta and traverses over 2,800 miles through the Rocky Mountains through British Columbia, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico to end at the US-Mexico border.

Norm rode his Salsa Cycles El Mariachi Ti 29er mountain bike. In preparation for the trip, we helped him get the bike optimally set up with our Bicycle Fitting Service, as well as outfitted him with new tires and spare parts to take along on the trail.

Norm finished his ride on October 9, 2015. Please join us in congratulating him! You can read his weekly reports from the trip using the following links to the Gentle Brook blog:
