North Dakota, Medora
These 96 continuous miles of singletrack mountain bike route traverses North Dakota's rugged badlands and weave through prairie teeming with wildlife. But riders aren't drawn to this region just for the scenery; the Maah Daah Hey also offers world-class mountain biking. A real nature tour, away from civilization!
The government encourages cycling on paper but this is not yet reflected in concrete actions. Cycling is not permitted on all roads.
The east of the North Dakota includes rolling fertile lowlands and it is the ‘bread basket’ of America. To the west, this area changes suddenly at the Missouri Coteau (a steep gradient of 90-180 m) to the sparsely populated prairies of the Great Plains.
The (land) climate in North Dakota is rather extreme. The short, dry and warm summers provide a brief but intense growing season. Winters are cold.
