The Route Makes the Ride

A great bike tour has to have a baseline component: a great route. Organization, amenities, education and inspiration - all are important, but the riding must be spectacular. Not only is the course gorgeous, it appeals to all types of riders. Our course combines both valley floors and mountain passes. See for yourself by looking through the route pages. Better yet, join us for the week and enjoy the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem via handle bars and a bike saddle.

We're starting in Red Lodge, Montana, heading to Absarokee, Montana by way of Columbus where you will find yourself on a backroad with rolling hills and flats next to the mighty Yellowstone River and then the Stillwater River. From Absarokee, it's an out and back through Fishtail to Nye, Montana, and then through Roscoe back to Red Lodge. Day 3 is the Beartooth Highway - a National Scenic Byways All-American Road to Cooke City, Montana. From Cooke City on Day 4, we head through Sunlight Basin and the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway to Cody, Wyoming. This allows a layover on Day 5 in Cody with an optional ride up through the North Fork of the Shoshone River to Pahaska Tepee and the East Entrance of Yellowstone National Park. On Day 6 we'll ride to Powell, Wyoming, with an option to explore backroads through the Bighorn Basin. Day 7 finishes back in historic Red Lodge by way of Belfry and Bear Creek.
