Day 1: Ride from Snohomish to Arlington to Marblemount, on the fringe of the Cascade Range.

Meet us in Seattle (or at Bicycle Adventures' World Headquarters). We'll skip the traffic and shuttle north to a bakery in Snohomish, then bicycle the Mountain Loop through northern Washington to tiny Marblemount at the base of the Cascade Mountains.
Meals L D Distance: 100 miles Elevation: +3871 ft/-3606 ft

Day 2: Up and over the Cascades.

Today's ride features 5,000 feet of climbing, over gorgeous Washington Pass and into Washington's Wild West - the Mazama / Winthrop area. You'll do a 50-mile gradual climb on the North Cascades Scenic Loop and cruise through Ross Lake National Recreation Area. Finish off with a 25-mile descent into Mazama.
Meals B L D Distance: 75 miles Elevation +5420 ft/-3638 ft

Day 3: Ride into the heartland - from Mazama to Omak, through the oldest wildlife area in Washington State.

Today's route has about half the elevation gain - 2,500 feet - and lands in Omak, nestled just below the Canadian border on the Okanagan River. From Mazama, ride through part of the Okanagan National Forest and skirt the Sinlahekin Wildlife Area, a nearly 19,000-acre park that was originally a mule deer preserve. Cedar and fir give way to scattered pine, sagebrush and wide open prairie.
Meals B L D Distance: 60 miles Elevation: +4041 ft/-5185 ft

Day 4: Omak, Washington to Colville: 4,000 feet of climbing

As you head toward the Selkirks, you'll begin to leave the prairie behind and pedal up into stands of Ponderosa pine and aspen. Watch for white-tailed deer, moose and blue grouse! Today's route winds through the Sherman Creek Wildlife Area and across Lake Roosevelt, formed by the Grand Coulee Dam. Ride through Kettle Falls, a former rendezvous point and fishing grounds for the Yakama, Nez Perce, Flathead and Blackfeet tribes (to name a few), whose seasonal salmon catches would net up to 3,000 fish per day! Spend tonight in Colville, a one-time trading center for the Upper Columbia region.
Meals B L D Distance: 128 miles (or less) Elevation +8041 ft/-7441 ft

Day 5: Ride from Colville to gorgeous Sand Point, Idaho, on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille

Today's ride - all 100 miles of it - takes you to a well-earned 2-night stay on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille, the second largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi.
Meals B L Distance: 126 miles (or less) Elevation +5169 ft/-4653 ft

Day 6: Stay put in Sand Point: ride, hike, fly-fish, golf, go rock-climbing…you get the idea.

...or take a 10-mile ride (climb) up to Schweitzer Ski Resort, Idaho's second largest. Surrounded by the Selkirk, Cabinet and Bitterroot ranges, Sandpoint is a fun-loving mountain town hugging the shores of sparkling Lake Pend Oreille. Ride, hike, play golf, go fly-fishing or rock-climbing - take your pick.

Day 7:

Back on the road - 98 miles across the panhandle to Libby, Montana.
Meals B L D Distance: 98 miles (or less) Elevation: +3349 ft/-3332 ft

Day 8:

Libby to Whitefish, Montana, gateway to Glacier National Park.
Meals B L D Distance: 76 miles Elevation: +5484 ft/-5001 ft

Day 9: East Glacier National Park: Going-to-the-Sun Road is the perfect finale ride. And oh, yeah, you've got a train to catch.

Today, ride 83 miles over the Continental Divide - the famous Going-to-the-Sun Road, Logan Pass - into East Glacier. If you haven't ridden Logan Pass, highest point in Glacier National Park, you're in for a treat. From its beginnings at Lake McDonald, the road gently climbs higher and higher as the views unfold: alpine meadows and lakes, peaks skirted by fields of wildflowers and washed by waterfalls, the occasional bighorn sheep or mountain goat. Utterly spectacular. You've got a 6:00 pm train to catch, though, so dawdling!
Meals B L D Distance: 70 miles Elevation: +7176 ft/-5570 ft

Day 10: Wake up on the train. Watch the scenery spin past as you head back to Seattle. We'll miss you!

Having caught the train on Sunday evening, you'll have spent the evening in the dining car, reminiscing and relaxing, and retire to your private sleeper car. Wake up on Monday morning, have breakfast (still on the train) and arrive in Seattle at about 10:30 am for your return trip home.
