The only one listed on the map is Cadillac Mountain Sports. I think the Bar Harbor Bike Shop is closed.

There's only one bike shop listed on the map in Bar Harbor, and I suspect they have lots of experience with Northern Tier riders shipping bikes to them or from their store. If you pay them to put your bike together they are usually happy to have your bike shipped there.

You might want to check this website for the cycling map of north San Francisco. I don't know if it covers Vallejo though.

Routes / Re: Southern Tier Questions

If you are looking at your map it means that between Van Horn and Fort Davis the only services are at exit 159 and at the top of Mount Locke at the observatory, plus a motel near Fort Davis. There are a few services at Davis Mountains State Park, but that is close to Fort Davis. You will need to carry extra food and water with you, and if you can't ride that distance, be prepared to camp by the roadside. Or try to hitch a ride. There used to be services at Kent, but the town is all closed up now.

A portion of what you are planning is the Great Divide Route from FR 055 westward to Lima. At Lima the route doesn't parallel I-15 but continues farther west and north (on gravel) to Grant which is west of Clark Canyon Reservoir. This routing is shown on the Great Divide Route #2 map.

Here is a link that shows the U.S. Click on Wind Direction/March: http://www.wrcc.dri.edu/climmaps/
And here is a website that might give you further info: http://www.sercc.com/

Most experienced cycle tourists will tell you half the time you'll have headwinds and the other half tailwinds, so it probably doesn't matter which direction you go.

Routes / Re: frontage road from billings to livingston
« on: December 09, 2013, 04:03:03 pm »
If you are starting in Red Lodge you can use Hwy. 78 from there to Columbus (on I-90). Between Columbus and Livingston, a distance of 77 miles, there are several places you will have to use I-90 because there are no other roads to ride.  Between exits 400 and 392, between exits 354 and 350, and between exits 343 and 337, a total of 18 miles, you'll have to be on I-90. The remainder of the distance you can use frontage roads, sometimes on one side and then on the other side of the freeway.

Itasca State Park on map 70 is where the headwaters of the Mississippi River is located. You can read about it in the Field Notes text on section 5.

I thought the Gila Cliff Dwellings north of Silver City, NM, were interesting plus there's hot springs in the town.

Yes, i think you'll be able to do it by motel/B&B, etc. You might have to plan for some long days, and reservations are a good idea in the area of western ND and eastern MT. Motels in that area are being used by the Bakken oil field workers between Dickinson, ND and Glendive, MT. In eastern ND there is a stretch of 110 miles between Enderlin and Napoleon where we don't list any motels. On the addenda there is Cyclists Only Lodging/Camping listed in Gackle, which is 72.5 mi. w. of Enderlin. You could contact the person offering lodging to see what his set-up is and if you can stay without having a sleeping bag, etc. Or you could do some online searching to see if you can find a B&B nearby or you might have to ride parallel to I-94 where there are motels.
