the Northern Tier Route
The first half of the Northern Tier stretches from the Atlantic to the Mississippi River. I will ride along two of the Great Lakes, Niagara Falls, and much of the midwest–including Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. The second half, from Minnesota to Seattle, includes the Great Plains, Badlands, Rocky Mountain ranges and farmland in between. “Going to the Sun Road” will take us deep into Glacier National Park and will begin a two week stretch of mountains, rivers, and extreme natural beauty before arriving in Seattle!
