What fun would be wrenching on the bike if there wasn’t an epic trip to be had in the end?
This is a route I am pondering. Heading from Denver up to Saskatoon SK up in the great white north (taking mostly freeways and fast routes to get up there, should be able to do it in 2 days on the bike) to visit with a friend up there. Thentaking a much more leisurely and scenic run back through Glacier Natl Park, Yellowstone, SLC, the Arches, then through some of CO I didn’t get to hit 1st time around.
total route mileage is somewhere around 3500mi. But the real route would probably add 100 – 200 onto that for meandering and looking at other roads.
Pretty sure this would be something like a 10 – 11 day trip and probably would happen in late August or Labor day weekend.
It would be a mix of camping and hotels. No way I am going to camp for almost 2 weeks and put that kind of mileage on the bike.
