2022 Montana Big Sky & National Parks Tour

Missoula, MT to Jackson, WY - June 3 - 14

June 3 - 14 (YNP Option June 3-10 - $3809)

    • Welcome to Big Sky country and Rocky Mountain Northwest hospitality! Our 12-day or 8-day cycling adventure in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming will cover 459 miles of some of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring cycling in the Rocky Mountain Northwest. The route begins in the Garden City known as Missoula, Montana. We begin by snaking our way down the Bitterroot Valley on a well-established bike trail. We’ll soon leave the path and join the rural, scenic country roads as we conquer a few mountain passes over 7,000’ before dropping down, down into the Big Hole valley; a vast, sparse open valley that will bring to mind memories of the old west. Every day will be filled with majestic mountain views and open valleys as we pedal our way toward the old mining towns of Nevada and Virginia City, followed by a steep climb and an exhilarating descent into Ennis; the fly-fishing capital of the world.

      From Ennis we turn steeds toward Yellowstone National Park and a welcomed rest day so that you can explore the park and share stories of your journeys so far. Yellowstone will be crowded in the summer months so we will journey west and south into Idaho making our way down the western escarpment of Grand Teton National Park. A hefty climb up and over Teton Pass will drop us into Jackson Hole, Wyoming near Grand Tetons National Park and the end of our awesome journey together.
      If you would rather do an 8-day adventure ending in West Yellowstone, Montana. We will shuttle you to Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport the morning after we arrive in West Yellowstone. Be sure to choose the YNP options if you desire this shorter itinerary.


      This tour has been created to support Stroke Across America – a 4,400-mile ride across America to raise awareness about stroke, aphasia and the need to support the emotional journey in recovery. We are asking all participants to contribute to the campaign.

      The tour itinerary is offered to support Stroke Across America – a 4400-mile journey across America led by stroke survivor Debra Meyerson and her husband Steve Zuckerman. They are riding to raise awareness about stroke, aphasia and the need to more fully support the emotional journey in recovery from traumas like stroke. Each participant on this tour is asked to contribute at least $250 to the Stroke Onward Stroke Across America campaign. You can make your donation here, or by going to: https://strokeonward.org/donate. If you join our tour we will share your contact information with Stroke Onward, and they will share more information about Stroke Across America and ways you can get more involved if you would like. (Sharing participant information is contrary to our standard policy, but we are doing so as this tour was designed in support of their work.)

       

      What to Expect:

      This is a fully supported tour with indoor hotel accommodations, meals in local establishments, on-route SAG, and luggage transportation. The weather will be warm and the scenery spectacular. We will traverse smooth pavement, bike paths and low traffic paved roads. Daily mileages range from 25-70 miles. Temperatures will range from mid 30s at night to the mid to upper 60s during the day. Rain is possible, but not likely; always be prepared.

      Remember: You are coming to a high elevation area, where you require more water intake than you typically would at lower elevations. We recommend making an effort to drink more water than you usually would, the week before you travel to help prevent dehydration and altitude sickness. If you have health conditions, please consult you doctor before coming.
