Patrick and Hannah had been together and going on great adventures for over ten years. They decided to make a plan and that plan involved getting married and going on a honeymoon. After celebrating their Big Day in May with awesome friends and family they bundled all their clothes and camping gear into two little trailers and hopped onto mountain bikes to travel some 2,500 miles along the Great Divide from New Mexico to Banff in Alberta, Canada.  They wanted to roughly follow the established Great Divide route  (albeit backwards - South to North) through the Rocky Mountains.
