Routes / St Mary to Baab to Browning
« on: April 07, 2021, 12:23:35 pm »
Anyone have experience with  Mt 464 highway?
I'm not trying to save miles but here is an alternative
Scenery and safe roads are the factors to consider. I'll have had plenty of mountains and forests.

Routes / Yaak to Rexford Montana

Has anyone ridden this route in the summer? Is it as beautiful as it appears?

Does anyone have  knowledge that the traffic east bound on the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park will be any heavier on a Sunday morning in mid July v. a Wednesday morning?

Routes / gravel near West Glacier
« on: March 17, 2020, 01:57:57 pm »
The ACA Northern Tier section 2 map 23 shows 2.9 miles of gravel on Blankenship Rd just before the route rejoins US 2. Does anyone know if it is still gravel? My map is from my 2004 ride.

I'm planning on riding US 2 from Kalispell to Libby. I'm interested in your experience of this stretch of highway.

Gear Talk / SON Delux generator hubs

I'm interested  in your experience with SON Delux generator hubs. Specifically, do  you notice any drag and reliability. I'm not interested in other brand of generator hubs.

Routes / north of Missoula
« on: July 09, 2019, 04:48:44 pm »
The Great Parks route only uses a route from Missoula to Whitefish via MT 83 and back. There must be a reason not to do a loop using US 93 and then either side of Flathead Lake. Anyone with experience riding that stretch of highway?

General Discussion / campground in Ferndale MT
« on: June 30, 2019, 06:14:39 pm »
The latest map update for Great Parks North says that there is cyclist only camping available on Bob Young's property in Ferndale, MT (map 21). Does anyone have experience camping there? Is there water, showers, picnic tables or just "on property?"

Routes / Goint to the Sun Road
« on: March 03, 2019, 06:13:18 pm »
I've only ridden the Going to Sun Road from the west (35 degrees and raining so missed much of the view).  I suspect riding from the east is easier because the elevation at St Mary is already 4515' where it is only 3170' at the Apgar campground. Anyone done it both ways and can comment?

Routes / route out of Denver to Siverthorne
« on: March 03, 2019, 05:04:44 pm »
I'd like to ride the Colorado High Country route that has been a guided ACA tour but I'd like to ride up from Denver. Anyone know how to get up to Silverthorne by bicycle?

General Discussion / border crossing

Anyone have negative experience crossing back into the US near North Troy, VT?

Routes / US 89 Montana
« on: November 25, 2017, 05:41:14 pm »
Has anyone ridden US 89 from Great Falls to Browning? Is it a good road to ride? Montana's bike map seems to think so.

Routes / Green Mtns Loop
« on: November 15, 2017, 08:32:25 pm »
The Adventure Cycling Green Mtns Loop has an alternative route leaving St Johnsbury (clockwise). Anyone have experience with both routes and can comment on what each route is like?

Routes / Going to the Sun
« on: November 04, 2017, 09:26:18 pm »
What's the best time to ride The Going To The Sun Highway in Glacier National Park? Just before the bicycle limitation when snow is an issue, or later when traffic can be a problem? What is it like in July?

Gear Talk / Prius and racks
« on: October 29, 2016, 04:46:58 pm »
I'd like to know what your experience has been with a roof rack on the Prius. Do the feet fit well? Does it have enough power when there are four bikes up top? How about with a hitch rack out back?
