Yes, hotels are available but limited. Be sure to book as soon as you register if you want to use hotels. We also offer Tent Sherpa.
The 2024 Montana Tour is on multi-surface roads: gravel, paved road and dirt. We recommend a gravel bike or road bike suitable for gravel, dirt and road surfaces. Minimum recommended width is 35 mm gravel tires with tread. While you may be able to do most of these roads on a road bike with a heavier road tire, we don't recommend it. Do not bring road racing tires.
Pedal assist is welcome however if you choose to use a pedal assisted bike, you are responsible for your own batteries and charging. Please plan to charge in hotels or bring proper charging equipment that we can plug in at campsites. While we have professional mechanics, we cannot promise all e-bike specific items as we are in small towns without bike shops. Thank you for understanding.
We will have more information posted on accommodations about shipping your bike. We do recommend using Bike Flights or shipping with your local bike shop.
Intermediate to advanced level riding is preferred. Beginners are not discouraged but will need to be sure to have a solid 4-5 months of training on the saddle. There is a layover day mid-week to take a break as needed.
In some towns you'll have cell service and some will not have very good service. Most of the route is in and out of cell service so it's best to put your phone on airplane mode, ride and take in the views.
We do not have a lot of extra space in some of our camps for family and friends to bring extra cars. But we can work out exceptions and provide guidance in the areas we are visiting. Above all, we highly discourage them to drive the routes and be within the cyclists on the road. It creates unwanted congestion on the tour. Please contact us for further guidance.
We will try to offer a 3 day option and it will be announced in February 2024. We know people like this option however we have logistics to work out for the 3-Day version.
