Wha’chu Packin’: The Colorado Trail

Donald “A Man/Divided” has arrived in Colorado to bike the Colorado Trail starting the 24th. When I start planning for a bike packing adventure I find myself scouring the internet for what others have needed or packed for a similar trip but I more often than not come up empty handed. So I asked Donald to send me his gear list for his over 500 mile journey. Take a look for yourself.
