Myself and a few friends recently did the Banff to Whitefish portion of the GDMBR and had a blast, so much so that they want to do another section next year.  The Banff section is going to be hard to beat as far as mountain scenery and fun but I thought I'd ask, what are the opinions out there as to scenery and fun for the other sections?  The group has already mentioned doing the section from Whitefish to Polaris but I did that stretch in 2015 and don't really remember it being very scenic.  I was thinking about the Colorado section.  Opinions?

Thanks,

The southern Colorado sections are gorgeous. The only trouble is that flatlanders who start in Colorado could have altitude issues. One great thing about doing the whole thing is, Banff isn't very high. Gradually, as you ride south, you get higher, but there's plenty of time to acclimate.
