Routes / Re: From Bannff or Boulder or Portland To Helena MT...

Win-Win-Win for sure. I am so excited. For months now I have been reading the AC website and peoples' blogs about their bike travels. Kinda feel like a little kid.

Starting in Jasper has crossed my mind...although currently I am extremely home sick for Boulder. Maybe, fly into Calgary, ride into Bannff, stop for a few days in Helena, then extend a week and ride down to Boulder.

From what I can see so far the Portland route seems to have a lot more hotels, and place to stop and regroup if  I needed. Do you think logistically it is a better a first tour? I am sure this will not be my only tour...I want to make sure it simple enough that I get to do more riding than planing  ;)

I am planing to ride to Helena MT this August and trying to pick a starting city...
So far I have narrowed it down to: (top picks)
1. Bannff
2. Boulder
3. Portland
4. Seattle

It looks like they all have well established routes. Any opinions on the starting city/direction for a newbies first tour?

Thank you
