WE is a great route, but be prepared for serious heat and lack of support and water. 115 degrees when we did it one summer. I remember hearing weather reports that Phoenix was even hotter.

The airlines will sell a bike box to anyone who wants one.
Be prepared for some very steep sections going over Dobson.
Ideas- take Rte 200 from Missoula to Paradise to Thompson Falls; come over the divide to Murray and Rte 456 over Dobson Pass to Wallace which is 7 miles in from the e trailhead of the Trail of the Cdlens. All good road.
#2 per my knowledge, you can get most of the way from Missoula to St. Regis on the frontage road Along I-90. Then take the 17 mile ride to Paradise and follow the above.
If you have tires that will take dirt, u can go all almost all the way from St. Regis to the Silver Valley on a frontage road.
Also from St. Regis, you can take a great ride over Gold Creek Pass to Avery – St. Marys.
More- after doing the trail of the Coeur d’Alenes; you can ride up 95 to Coeur d’Alene and jump on the bi state Centennial Trail into Spokane.
Of course, wider tires allow for more options.
How bad was the roads from Dolores CO to Pubelo CO taking route 550 to the 50 (Dolores, Montrose, Poncha City and Pueblo)?
It has to be VERY warm, downright tropical, for one to be comfortable in the rain with no rain gear
its not very joyful to ride in full rain gearI do loathe riding up hill with rain gear. You tend to either get wet from the inside or the outside.
