Road to the sun

From the Rocky Mountain resort town of Banff our journey continues on another shorter but stunningly beautiful section. Along the seasonal Kananaskis highway we spin up and down the foothills of the Rockies, climbing to 2200 m at Highwood pass. Then it’s down the Cowboy Trail with the MacDonald Range appearing in the distance and into the oil field town of Pincher Creek.

Riders cycle into beautiful Waterton Lakes Park before climbing to the remote Canada-USA border crossing at Chief Mountain, Montana. From there we enter the lands of the Blackfeet Indians which surround Glacier National Park. After a rest day at the village of St Mary eating huckleberry pie, we’ll cycle on the Going to the Sun Road surrounded by towering peaks as we climb to the Continental Divide at Logan Pass and then descend past ice fed Lake MacDonald.

After a rest day in the outdoor recreation playground of Whitefish, it’s a 4 day ride to the Montana’s capital of Helena. Cycling through state forests and ranchlands, along the Flatbush and Blackfoot rivers, including a lunch stop in the bike friendly hamlet of Ovando (population 50) and a sweet ascent and descent into Lewis and Clark County.
All of the sections of this tour offer a different window into the natural splendors of the continent, but if you’ve only got a couple weeks to spare in late summer, the Road to the Sun section will wow and invigorate you to come back for more.
