I’m planning a large road tip throughout the western United States next year. It should take a month to complete, and I’ll stop at as many trailheads and bike parks as I can along the way.
I have always wanted to visit Whistler in Canada, but I have also always wanted to visit Angelfire in New Mexico. That makes for a LONG trip, and there are a lot of great trails in between!
The primary locations for this trip are:
- Bend, Oregon
- Whistler, BC (and outlying areas)
- Keystone, CO
- Durango, CO
- Angelfire, NM
I can hear you already; “Where’s Moab on that list? Why didn’t you include Idaho, Washington, or Arizona?” Well, those stops are on my map, but I have been to a few of them before, and I want to make room for those places I have heard so much about but have not yet visited.
The map is fairly comprehensive, but it is also a living document. It will be changing over time and I will add/remove locations as they lose or gain status or feasibility. In the mean time, check the map often to see how it evolves. If you have any idea on how I can improve the route or destinations, log in and leave a comment. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
It looks like I’ll be making a 3-week trip up north (Whistler) rather than all across the states. This new route has far fewer stops, but I’ll get to stay longer at the ones I love the most.
I’m hoping to visit a few of the southern locations later in the Summer/Fall (Durango/Moab/Angelfire/St. George?)
Stay tuned for an updated map and plan.
