Road Biking & Touring

Great Divide Mountain Bike Route

Road Biking and Touring

A great way to explore Montana is on two wheels with the help of a little manpower. Ride across the high plains. Climb mountain passes. Cruise through charming towns with welcoming locals. The possibilities and spaces are vast and so is the challenge. Road biking and touring in Big Sky Country are experiences not soon forgotten, but they do require careful planning. It's best to chart your stops and overnight stays in advance and always consult with local communities to see if they have the means to accommodate touring cyclists. Once your plan is set, pack up your saddlebags for your tour of Big Sky Country.

Day 1 of our cycling Southwest Montana exploration begins with a ride on the Adventure Cycling TransAM route. We basecamp at Dillon, MT and visit the small town of Twin Bridges and Nevada City. Russ also manages to slip in a little bikefishing.

"For us, the TransAm is an incredible route because it passes through these small places, and gives us all an opportunity to connect with people from other walks of life."
