I am new to this website but I can see it is full of people with experience. I am planning on traveling from the U.P. of Michigan to Portland, Oregon. I am looking for a route using secondary roads as much as possible to avoid traffic and congestion. This will also be a fundraising ride. I want this ride to benefit others, not just something I can say I did. Any routes, maps, information, etc. would be appreciated. My target date is the summer of 2008. Thanks!

I need a recommendation on what tire to use for touring the country. We will be using mountainbikes with  BOB trailers traveling the Northern Tier which will be pavement. Any 26" tire suggestions would be helpful!

Routes / Getting from Whitefish to Missoula

My friend and I will be traveling East to West on the Northern Tier and we will be finishing in Portland, OR. I was wondering the best way to get on the Lewis and Clark Route from Whitefish, MT. Do we just head South to Missoula and wing it or is there a recommended route that would get us there perhaps via Great Parks Route Section 2? Thanks for the help!

In crossing the Northern Tier from Michigan to Portland, Oregon time is a factor as we are allowing 30 days. Do you feel this is adequate time and what would be the shortest route?

I need your help. I am riding the Northern Tier east to west and I need to get to Portland, OR. Has anyone done this? Does anyone have any information on getting there. What ACA maps would I need or do you have to wing it? Thanks

Hey ride 29. That sounds like a great ride. I'm a rider from Munising, Mi. If you make it this way let me know.We'll treat you to a home cooked meal and you can camp in the yard if you're in need of a place. My friend and I are  riding the Northern Tier in the summer of 08 for breast cancer awareness and I'd be interested to hear your experiences and help you out if you need any. Good luck!!
