Some Tips For Touring Montana by bicycle.

The vast open distances in Montana, the so called spaces between the places, are very hard for first time visitors to comprehend. They present unique challenges for people touring Montana on bicycle for the first time. Food and lodging are genuine concerns when towns are as spread out as they are in Montana. Bike shops are limited to the bigger towns, and in many smaller towns even hardware stores are becoming rare.

Many small towns are not used to having touring cyclists pass through, much less desiring to spend the night. As a result its best to call ahead to local communities and see if they provide any special support for touring cyclist. While it is fun to get off the beaten path, doing so in Montana requires extra care and planning.


The landscape and wildlife is an obvious attraction, and Montana offers numerous guides and events for the touring cyclist.
