Impossible Route Dark Divide

Here on the latest installment of the Impossible Route Tyler and Jeremiah add a new "friend in misery" with Andrew Jackson joining the fun. Andrew who is an elite level, Moto and BMX athlete, is no stranger to 2 wheeled activities but maybe slightly less to hiking through the Cascades with a bike on his back. Check out the video below to see what we are talking about.
