    This tour is geared for experienced intermediate level or better cyclists. Mileage will range from 30 to 50 miles a day over rolling to mountainous terrain. Luggage will be shuttled to our destination each day. Our trek will begin in Spokane, Washington, the city with a waterfall at its heart and outdoor beauty all around. Our route will take us through three states using back roads, as well as a famous paved rail trail. We will even take a day to do a liveried easy mountain bike trip to the Route of The Hiawatha, a popular unpaved rail trail through the mountains of Bitterroot range with many trestles and tunnels. Back on our road bikes, we'll continue riding the trail and roads along the shores of lakes and rivers. This route has surprisingly little car traffic as we take the road less travelled across the Idaho panhandle and into Montana's Flathead Basin for a dip in a hot spring resort pool. We'll ride the shore of Flathead Lake to West Glacier where we will set off on our finale, a trip up the Going-To-The-Sun Road on rented e-bikes. July is a wonderful time of year to be in this part of the country. There are rarely clouds, let alone rainy days. Wildflowers and wildlife abound along our route each day. Our accommodations will be hotels with a local flavor and delicious local cuisine. Dinner and breakfast are included each day along with lunch on two days. Riders are expected to complete the route on their bike each day but bags will be shuttled and the route will be swept by our luggage van. Each day will be a unique adventure as we ride into a new landscape each day, beginning on the Palouse, the rolling green valleys of Eastern Washington. From there we'll ride along the shore of Lake Coeur d'Alene and into Idaho's Silver Valley, over the Bitterroot Divide, into the Flathead basin and ending in the Rockies of Glacier National Park. We will then be shuttled back to Spokane for a night before heading home.

    8-day Grand Teton cycling adventure. We will cycle the paved bike trails and roads of Jackson Hole Valley in Wyoming to the east, over the majestic Teton Pass, to the bucolic Teton Valley in Idaho to the west. We will enjoy the Western mountain atmosphere of bustling Jackson Wyoming, where we will spend the first three nights. Our bike routes will take us through the breathtaking scenery of jagged mountain peaks, the lush valley floor, and alpine lakes. One of the days, we will have the opportunity to ride over the famed Teton Pass, from Wyoming to Idaho. With the optional benefit of an E-bike, participants may choose to experience this breathtaking mountain pass. We will ride 22.9 miles with 2387 ft elevation gain, rising to an elevation of 8435ft overlooking Jackson Hole to the east and Idaho to the west, and cruise down to our next lodging. The grade is between 11-13% in some parts. Victor, Idaho in Teton Valley will be our home base for the second half of the trip. Teton Valley encompasses 70 miles of gorgeous scenery along the western slopes of the Teton Range. The "Drictor loop", a 37 mile bike route, encompassing Victor and Driggs, Idaho, features the best roads on the outskirts of the valley, and is a local bike club favorite. The Ashton-Tetonia rail trail, 30 miles one-way, features 3 historic trestle bridges, eastern Idaho farm country, and unsurpassed views of the surrounding mountains. While in Idaho, we will enjoy many of the cultural offerings of the region. A popular outdoor music concert takes place each week in Victor, as well as a rodeo. We will have the opportunity to try single track mountain biking or cycling through more awe-inspiring valley scenery.
