Routes / Re: GDMBR - Missoula Spur?

Thanks a bunch for this detail.  Just what I was looking for...if we decide to give it a go in August, I'll snap some picks and let you know how it was.



Routes / GDMBR - Missoula Spur?
« on: May 12, 2021, 11:21:45 am »
I'm planning a 4 or 5 day trip in mid August on the GDMBR from Missoula to Helena. Primary goal is to ride hard in daylight hrs. and have fun with plenty of time to setup camp, eat, sleep, etc.  Initial plan is to take the Missoula spur from MSO to Seeley Lake the first day.  The elevation profile is showing ~7,000 feet of gain so thinking this will be a tough day of cycling.  I'm looking for intel on the road conditions on this spur part of the route, and specifically how it compares to other sections of the route from Roosville to Helena which I rode in late July of 2019. ?  Thanks in advance for any advice/input.

I've never done a cross-country tour, but I'm considering this trip for Sept. 2014.  This will be one-way East to West and I will be travelling as light as possible with minimal gear for some overnight camping, but mainly motels.  My goal is to find as direct a route as possible with relatively safe roads.  I'm concerned about how much of a headwind from the west could really reduce my average speed, and about the distances between facilities in the open areas of OK, TX & NM.  Any advice or comments would be appreciated.
