In July of 2015, pro mountain biker Mike Hopkins and a crew from Freehub set out to ride a 26-mile section of Montana's Continental Divide Trail. The five-man, bike-powered expedition passed Montana’s Lewis and Clark Pass on July 7th—209 years to the day after Meriwether Lewis crossed it on his journey back east. It was a fitting coincidence given that the modern day adventurers came to know, however briefly, what it was like to be an early explorer, experiencing horrific weather conditions and every kind of terrain imaginable on the trail. The expedition is featured in Freehub Issue 6.4.
