The American West conjures up images of the Rockies, crystal clear mountain streams, endless skies, and cowboys and cowgirls huddled around a campfire sipping coffee.

And while the Great Divide section includes several long challenging days in the saddle those who are able to find the frontier spirit within themselves will be richly rewarded by this journey on 2 wheels into the Wild West.

After exiting Helena we visit the historic Missouri River headwaters before spinning up the Gallatin River canyon where white water rafters dodge boulders as they rush downstream. From there it’s a quick ride to West Yellowstone where clients can cycle into or take a guided tour of Yellowstone Park where they will spy herds of bison, fields of hot springs, and the world’s most renowned geyser, Old Faithful.

Back in the saddle we’ll cruise along quiet scenic roads in Idaho, with great views of the foreboding peaks of the Tetons which we traverse at Teton Pass. Then it’s a wicked downhill into the rich and famous … and expensive … ski resort town of Jackson Hole for a rest day. Then it's a sweet rolling bike path most of the way to Hoback canyon. From there the riders will cross the gauntlet of Wyoming’s remote High Chaparral where humans are vastly outnumbered by cattle.

After passing by Green River and the Flaming Gorge Reservoir we’ll catch our first glimpses of the surreal rock formations of the southwest that takes us into the northeastern corner of Utah where prehistoric sea life flourished and dinosaurs roamed long ago. Then it’s up and over western Colorado’s Douglas pass. Finally we cycle along Utah’s Highway 128, dwarfed by red rock cliffs and buttes carved eons ago by the Colorado river, and arrive at the mountain biking paradise town of Moab. Moab is also the gateway to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.
