Cycling Going-to-the-Sun Road In Glacier National Park

Driving Going-to-the-Sun Road is one of the most popular ways to see Glacier National Park in the summertime. It’s no secret that, for a few weeks during the spring, you can also bicycle that same road to Logan Pass when crews are not working to plow the snow off the road. This, I believe, is a cyclist’s dream: a car-free road through incredible mountain scenery, with 3,000 feet of descending. Mike Foote and I decided to try it on a weeknight, driving from Missoula, which is admittedly a bit of a long haul on a Monday afternoon, but a fun smash-and-grab adventure. I put together a quick video of our ride from a couple weeks ago, which I hope communicates the joy of it at least a little bit.
