Cricket left Banff this morning at 9:00AM our time, 6:00AM in Banff on her quest to break the women's record at the Tour Divide. I spoke to her yesterday and she is in great spirits and ready to roll. She will be riding initially with her friend Stephen Huddle from Cincinnati but they have both agreed to ride at their own pace after getting through the dangerous snow packed passes. You can keep up with Cricket's progress at the link as her spot is now functional:
I will also be posting her progress on twitter under the handle cbake777 for you twits out there and providing updates via text. Send positive thoughts as she will need to average 130 miles per day to accomplish her goal.
