Continental Divide Ride Day 6 – Atlantic City, Wyoming to Moran, Wyoming

Posted by on September 3, 2011

After a great nights sleep in my cabin, we did the normal routine of packing up everything, getting breakfast (scrambled eggs with salsa, potatos, and bacon) and having our daily rider meeting.

Our first stop was on the outskirts of Atlantic City, an abandoned mine. We poked around for a while in the old buildings, grabbed some pictures and continued out of town.

We split the group into 2 smaller groups, guys that wanted to go faster and the ones that would rather go a bit slower and more leisurely. I think this really helped the stress that was building up in this group, it made for a much smoother day. I chose to ride the slower group.

Toward the end of the ride we encountered some large road construction project. What was unusual is that we were guide through by a “pilot vehicle”. Traffic was one way only, being stopped at each end alternating. I thought the guide vehicle was unnecessary, I think we could have found our way through. We did this 2 different times, so I guess that must be fairly normal here.

We stayed at the Hatchet Resort. Kind of a rustic log motel I guess.

Total miles: 3121
