Best Road Ride: Going-to-the-Sun Road, Glacier National Park
For cyclists, there truly is no better way to take in the alpine views from the Going-to-the-Sun Road than from a bicycle. For a good leg burn, start at the west side at the West Glacier entrance. Pedal up 16 miles and more than 3,000 feet to Logan Pass, which is located on the Continental Divide at 6,647 feet, and return the same route. If you’re visiting midsummer, make sure to get an early start; from June 15 through Labor Day, sections of the Going-to-the-Sun Road are closed to bicycle use between 11am and 4pm. If you can, time your visit with the shoulder season (early June and late September) when the road is closed to vehicular traffic. Full moon rides are also popular with the locals and in-the-know bicycle travelers.
