    Edmonton to Tahoe Trail 100 & everything in between.

    My husband and I are planning to drive from Edmonton, Alberta to the Tahoe Trail 100 race in Northstar, California. I've created a VERY loose agenda of places we can stop and ride/explore on the way there and back. I would love trail recommendations for the places listed below AND/OR alternate suggestions. We are road riders who are new to mountain biking but have a few years experience cyclocross racing and are comfortable with our bike handling. Not looking for overly technical places to ride. We're not afraid of long climbs either!

    First draft of the trip. We would drive south through Montana, Idaho and Nevada. On the way home we would travel north through California, Oregon, Washington and BC.

    Day 1-Drive 8 hours to Helena
    Day 2/3 - ride in Helena/Bozeman area
    Day 4-Drive 12 hours to Reno
    Day 5/6/7 - ride in Reno/Northstar area
    Day 8 - Tahoe Trail 100
    Day 9 - Recover in Reno/Northstar area
    Day 10-Drive 12 hours to Seattle
    Day 11 - Ride in Seattle
    Day 12 - 4.5 hour drive to Whistler. Afternoon exploring.
    Day 13/14 - Ride in Whistler
    Day 15 - Drive home

    Thank you for your help!

    It would be a shame to skip Ketchum/Sun Valley if you're headed through Idaho. Just bring your high altitude lungs

    Also, if you heading up through Seattle, you might also hit Bellingham as there some awesome riding close by......as you are driving by it.
    I am sure you have probably been there but Squamish is amazing.........

    Have a great trip!

    Second the visit to Ketchum/Stanley. A day at Park City would be another great way to break up the trip between Helena and Reno.
