Experience Montana’s bucket-list rides on this point-to-point tour.

Our Montana-based crew loves to show off our backyard, and you’ll understand why on this challenging point-to-point trip. This trip involves two three-hour shuttles, and we move four times.  

Pack on big miles and take in breathtaking views of glaciers, craggy cliffs, and rivers as we pedal over Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park and climb to almost 11,000 feet on Beartooth Pass. Outside of the fully supported rides, you’ll enjoy a combination of Cycling House chef-prepared food – sourced locally as much as possible – and meals at local restaurants.

Are you looking for less moving and more time to unwind? Check out our Glacier trips.

Highlights

  • Six days of guided supported rides through Western Montana
  • Comfortable motel or lodge accommodations every night – new for 2023 – less packing! We will stay in East Glacier & Red Lodge for two nights.
  • Chef-prepared or local restaurant meals each day featuring Montana produce and baked goods.
  • Enjoy two bucket-list routes: Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park and Beartooth Pass.
  • Explore quaint Montana towns, including; West Glacier, East Glacier, White Sulphur Springs, and Red Lodge.
  • Arrival Day Airport & Hotel pickups in Flathead Valley (FCA)
  • Departure Day Airport & Hotel dropoffs in Billings (BIL)

Food

You’ll eat a combination of Cycling House chef-prepared food and meals at our favorite local restaurants. We source as much local food as possible, stopping at farmer’s markets along the way and working with a farm in the Flathead Valley to provide our dairy. Our bread and pastries are baked fresh at Le Petit Outre in Missoula, and we provide an abundance of beer from Missoula’s Big Sky Brewing Company

Accommodations

On our journey through rural Montana, we’ll stay in a mix of lodges and hotels. We start our trip in West Glacier and stay one night at Glacier Guides Lodge. After West Glacier, we have two nights at Jacobson Cottages in East Glacier on the edge of Glacier National Park. Next, we have one night at The Spa Hot Springs Motel in White Sulphur Springs.  We finish up with two nights at The Pollard Hotel in beautiful Red Lodge.

Your bike is yours—we get it. Bringing your own bike has obvious advantages in terms of individual comfort. Before your trip, we suggest getting a tune-up at your local bike shop so it’s ready to roll for your week of riding.

This trip was outstanding! Food was excellent, lodging was good, but the best part was the Cycling House staff. They took the time to get to know everyone, handled any details that needed to be addressed quickly and with enthusiasm. They were very knowledgeable about the regions we rode through and inspired confidence in the guests each day. Special thank you to Shaun Radley. My bike had minor damage in shipment to Montana. Shaun notified me immediately. It was rideable but required an insurance claim with BikeFlights. Shaun in the office took care of everything and the insurance check even beat me back home. To not have to worry about the insurance claim during the trip was much appreciated and allowed me to enjoy the trip to the fullest.

Great crew, beautiful rides, awesome food! I've ridden with other cycling outfits over the past few years, and will definitely return to The Cycling House. They have a great price point for the type of support they offer.

The Glacier to Yellowstone trip was wonderful. I enjoyed the breathtaking views and experiences throughout the trip. The hospitality of the staff trumped the views and experiences. What a great team of people; they really made the trip. I could not have asked for a better vacation.
