Cycle Montana - trip started/ended in Missoula, Montana, June 21-27, 2008

I was one of nearly 60 riders from the U.S. and Canada who participated in the 6-day road biking/camping tour, Cycle Montana. Hosted by Adventure Cycling Association (headquartered in Missoula), the scenic Montana tour took us through small, historic towns which once thrived on mining and timber industries. Towns we stayed in included Hamilton, Wisdom, Fairmont, Philipsburg and Bearmouth.

Here are photos for family and friends - Headed to Idaho now, so not much time to edit/organize the pictures yet! Feel free to email me karen@karenkefauver.com or read more cycling stories at http://www.karenkefauver.com.
