"Getting to know Michael Milton over those two days was one of the
highlights of the trip,"said Col.
"Ride the Divide was tough but I made it. I was the oldest one
there but I pedaled every inch - even if my 135kg payload was assisted
occasionally by a welcome (up hill) push from Michael.
"Reaching the ocean was a pretty proud moment and it was great to share
it with my eldest son Sam as well."
Col enjoyed the 2012 Ride the Divide so much that he's keen to
do it again on 4-5 May, this time driving the sag wagon.
"I've done it once on the bike and that's enough for now but I'd like
to help others make the trip as well. It really was a lot of fun and
the perspective Michael shares through his efforts in overcoming
challenges is invaluable," said Col.
"The first Ride the Divide was such a blast with quite a bit
of adventure thrown in. Col was great and so determined. I guess you'd
call him a veteran since he's been on every Ride the Divide
and is still coming back for more," laughed Milton.
