Routes / Northern Tier re-routed?
« on: June 26, 2020, 10:05:11 am »
On the interactive map page it appears that the Northern Tier has had a major re-route in Montana. I don't see anything in the blog about it, and the NT web page only refers to the 2012 change. Is there an update I'm not finding, and if so could someone point me toward it? Thanks.

Connecting ACA Routes / Northern Tier to Lewis & Clark?

I've heard a suggestion that the Lewis & Clark route east from the mountains to Circle, MT might be nicer riding than the Northern Tier over that stretch. If I wanted to do that, which would be better: jumping off the Northern Tier at Browning, following 89 down to Great Falls, and rejoining the Northern Tier at Circle, or at Chester and taking 223 down to Ft. Benton and on to Circle? Differences in roads, scenery, interesting points along the way, towns/services? Thanks! -Lee

Routes / Northern Tier in Minnesota: which loop?
« on: August 23, 2016, 03:52:20 pm »
We're looking at a Northern Tier trip and wondering about the route east of Fargo. There seem to be 2 1/2 choices: either north (with an option all the way up to Bemidji) and come back down through Brainerd, or south through Fergus Falls etc. What are the pluses and minuses of each?

We live in both Alberta and Michigan, and plan to ride our tandem from one house to the other. We'll more or less follow the Great Parks North route down to Glacier, and pick up the Northern Tier, then the North Lakes route. Looking at the map, it seems sensible to jump off the Northern Tier at Walker, take Minnesota state road 200 directly east to US 2, and follow that until it becomes the North Lakes route. This plan would avoid going south to Osceola then back north again. Has anyone done this? Is it a reasonable ride? Thanks.
