Thank you.  Lots of good ideas on that link you sent.  Time to start dreaming!

I think your geography is off.

Yes, this was the problem.  For some reason, I was thinking I could string along all of the rides I described above and it would be something cool.  But now I see that, while it's possible, it would be a bit disjointed and that, if I were to force the connections, it would require a lot of time on the Idaho Centennial Trail that appears to parallel I-90.   That doesn't sound nice.

Thanks for the wake up.  I think I need to ditch this little idea and settle for some piece meal rides that would be more interesting/relaxing/beautiful than the cockamamie idea I had a while back.

Thanks, Iowagriz and adventurePDX.

Is it too crazy that I 'm hoping to find a soup-to-nuts description of the particular stretch I'm looking for?  You know, everything from trail suitability (thanks, Iowagriz) to personal tales (thanks, adventurepdx, found the blog post).

If you ask me to plan a multi-week, multi-country travel trip, I can do it. But a multi-day bike trip?  I've done it before for some boy scout trips but, this time around, I'm somewhat lost still....

Thanks for the quick reply.   Unfortunately, the Wild West route misses my ideal starting post by 40 miles.  Nothing on that website either.

Happy riding!

Hi everyone,
   First time poster here. (Please be gentle :-) )
   About 10 years ago, I spent some days researching and planning out a trip from the Montana side of the Hiawatha, clear through to Spokane.  Now that I'm retired, and with a time galore on my hands, it calls to me again.   But I'm having a heck of a time finding info on it---it was hard info to find when I did this last time around too, but there were even some vendors who would offer shuttle services and logistics planning, IIRC.  Now I can't find a thing.

   Does anyone have any good source of recent information about how to string together the trails that I mention in the title of this post?   I imagine that this would be well-documented in a small book or set of blog posts...in my head, I imagine a lot of people wanted to do this.   (Maybe I'm overlooking some reason people aren't doing it...??)
