Description

This section begins in Canada, on the west side of the Continental Divide, crosses onto the prairies on the eastern side, then returns to the west over Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park. Towns like Fernie offer information and ample opportunities for the off-road cycling enthusiast, and whitewater rafting trips add to the choices of what one can do besides cycling.

Glacier National Park experiences very heavy tourist traffic during the summer, and you must plan your ride over Logan Pass to accomodate "bicycles prohibited" times during parts of the day from mid-June to Labor Day. With the exception of the two climbs and descents over the Continental Divide, the route follows river valleys and has rolling terrain. An alternate is offered which keeps the cyclist on the western side of the Divide.

ABOUT ADVENTURE CYCLING MAPS
Adventure Cycling maps are created by cyclists, for cyclists, and they are some of the best available for those in search of discovery and adventure in North America. The maps reflect the association's research as well as suggestions from thousands of cyclists who have explored the Adventure Cycling Route Network. Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available, with turn-by-turn directions, detailed navigational instructions for the tricky sections, and elevation profiles in the high country.

The maps are waterproof and designed to fit in a handlebar-bag window or jersey pocket. The maps provide information specifically for cyclists: the location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging.
