Cross Country USA: Portland to Missoula

Experience the first stage of riding across the USA

Newly Redesigned Bike Tour

We are excited to offer a limited number of spaces on the first leg of our Portland to Portland cross country trip.

You will begin your trip in Astoria, where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean. From here, point your bike eastward for 9 more days of gorgeous riding through the Columbia River Gorge and Hood River; the wine country of eastern Washington; the wild open spaces of Idaho; over Lolo Pass and into the Wild West college town of Missoula, Montana. The riding will be challenging, as you will cover more than 800 miles, with six rides of 90 miles or more, and climb over 42,500 feet. Your Trek Travel guides will be with you every pedal-stroke of the way, offering encouragement, mechanical and logistical support, camaraderie, and our renowned Trek Travel guest service. Our signature attention to detail—and exhaustive planning and provisioning—will leave you free to just ride as you take in stunning views of the American West. Your trip will conclude with a final well-deserved gourmet dinner with our intrepid Cross Country USA trip guests. Toast these hearty souls good luck before they press on for another 3000 miles through the heartland of America all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. Who knows? Maybe at that point you'll be thinking about going all the way next time.

What's Included

We Include More

Every moment of a Trek Travel bike trip has more than you could have ever dreamed. More romance. More scenery. More choice. It's the little additions to every Trek Travel cycling vacation that make it truly special. And that’s how we help you create more memories. See more

  • Gratuities for all scheduled special events, restaurants, hotels, local guides and transportation during your trip.
  • Private tours
  • Entrance fees to all group events/activities
  • All luggage transfers
  • All transportation during the trip, including private coaches
  • 10 nights of accommodation
  • In every region we travel, we uncover the area’s best, and most delightful accommodations. On our Portland to Portland trip, you will stay in a blend of high-end luxury hotels, resorts, rustic lodges, national chains and some motels. First and last nights of the trip and most rest days are spent in luxurious, full-service hotels. Along the way, use a number of hotels from national chains such as Best Western and Holiday Inn due to their consistent quality and service. Due to the nature of the trip, we also pass through some areas where accommodations are limited, and here we have secured the best local accommodations available - including some basic lodgings in family-run roadside motels. We've provided descriptions of the trip start, end, and rest day hotels on the Hotels tab.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Every effort has been made to secure the best lodging and dining available, but in some rural parts of the country our options are limited and may not meet the quality criteria of every guest. Please consider this in your decision to join the Trek Travel Portland to Missoula tour.
  • Daily breakfast, 9 lunches, 2 social hours, 8 dinners, and all snacks and drinks for each day
  • On our Portland to Missoula trip, you will encounter a broad array of regional cuisine. Following each day’s ride you will dine at the best restaurant the town has to offer (taking proximity to the hotel into account)—from simple, hearty dinners to downright decadent nouvelle cuisine. Breakfast will usually be a hot buffet or, on occasion, from a menu. For lunches, most days your guides set up “feed zones” at designated spots along the route. These are quick lunch stops providing sandwich fixings, light salads, fresh fruits, sweet and savory snacks, energy products and beverages—designed to enable riders to maintain momentum. Trek Travel will also have a range of Clif energy products on hand for whenever you need a boost. If you require a specific brand of energy product we recommend bringing an adequate supply for your personal needs as there will be little opportunity to restock on this trip. Dinners are a great time to refuel while exchanging tales from the day, but we also realize that after long days of riding, rest is best. Therefore, many dinners on long-mileage days will be buffet style, simple and quick, maximizing your time to rest and recuperate. When possible, in larger towns or after shorter days of riding, you’ll dine at finer restaurants selected to showcase the spice and flair of the region. You'll have one dinner and one lunch where you are free to dine wherever you choose. Trek Travel does not provide alcohol with dinner, but we will offer some evening social hours on the first and last evening where wine and beer will be provided.
  • PLEASE NOTE: as with our accommodation options across the country, there will be some meals that may not meet with every rider's quality standards due to limited options in some of the small towns along the way.

FAQs

Trip Changes

Our itineraries are an approximation of our trips. Trek Travel strives to offer each and every guest a vacation of a lifetime on every trip. At times routes, hotels, activities, etc. listed here may change at the discretion of the trip designer or guides to improve the trip experience.

  • Rider Type | 4
  • Average Daily Mileage | 81
  • Terrain | Hilly
  • Average Daily Elevation | 4,100 ft.

Cross Country USA: Portland to Missoula is best suited for our Type 4 Riders, due to the extreme physical demands of the trip. The terrain is extremely varied, including rolling roads along rivers, long gradual climbs and descents across the plains, as well as long and steep climbing and descending in the Rockies. Roads are primarily two-lane secondary highways with good shoulders, but include some stretches of primary highways with wide shoulders, and smaller local roads and surface streets with little or no shoulder. Some road surfaces may be rough. See Itinerary for specific daily ride distance and elevation options.

This destination is best suited to guests who want to cycle every day. Because of the terrain and/or remoteness of the hotels and riding routes, there are few, if any, non-riding options available. If a non-rider wants to accompany a rider guest on this trip, they would need to spend many hours in the van and/or at the hotels on the trip. Due to this, we strongly discourage non-riders from this destination. As an alternative, call a Trek Travel Trip Consultant at 866.464.8735 for trip suggestions where more non-rider activities are available, such as:

  • Costa Brava
  • California Coast
  • Crater Lake and the Oregon Cascades
  • Provence

Extremely varied. Expect all conditions including, rain, snow, fog, wind, sun, heat, and cold, in both humid and arid climates. Extreme weather conditions may exist in certain parts of the country. Your guides will monitor the safety of riding in such conditions and will delay or cancel rides if they deem the conditions to be too dangerous. Bring adequate layers and riding gear for riding in any and all conditions.

Trek Travel recommends all guests work with a coach to develop a training plan for this undertaking. We work with Vision Quest Training to give you that little boost before your Trek Travel bike trip. Vision Quest offers custom training plans that will get you ready to tackle your trip with confidence. The coaches consider the amount of hours you can train per week, what you need to focus on based on your goals and milestones you need to hit in order to achieve them. They develop a detailed write up and training plan just for you!

For an additional fee you may request to upgrade to the Trek Emonda SLR with Shimano Di2 electronic shifting or Bontrager Aeolus carbon wheels for the ultimate riding experience. Contact our trip consultants for more details.

When a trip is booked, a guest confirmation letter is immediately sent out. One week prior to the trip start you will receive an email containing a trip start meeting location reminder and any last minute information that you will need to know before your trip. Once you arrive at your destination Trek Travel staff will brief you on the day-to-day plan for the trip and provide you with daily route guides and Garmin tracks allowing you to ride with complete confidence and independence.

We understand things happen in life and sometimes you have to cancel or change your bike tour. We want to make it as easy as possible to do so and below you will find our timeline. If you ever have a question, just give us a call, 866 464 8735. Read our cancellation policy.

Meeting & Departing

How to get there

We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the trip start, which will enable you to adjust to the time zone and minimize the risk of missing the trip start due to flight-related delays. We recommend that you fly into Portland International Airport (PDX), which is approximately 12 miles from downtown Portland.

All major airlines serve this airport and there are numerous options for getting downtown. The least expensive option is the MAX Light Rail Service. The Red Line picks passengers up in the baggage claim area and costs about $2.50 per person for a ride downtown, which takes about 40 minutes. If you are staying at the pickup hotel, Hotel Lucia, get off at the Pioneer Courthouse Square stop and the hotel is a three block walk up Broadway. Alternatively, contact Blue Star Transportation (www.bluestarbus.com, 503 249 1837) to book a seat on a regularly scheduled shuttle from PDX to downtown for $14 per person. This will take between 40 minutes to an hour, depending upon traffic. Or, you can simply hail a taxi outside baggage claim, which will cost approximately $35 plus gratuity and should take about 30 minutes, depending on traffic.

Hotel Lucia | Portland, Oregon

Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at the Hotel Lucia (400 SW Broadway, Portland, Oregon) at 9:00 AM on the first day of the trip. You will then shuttle approximately 2 hours to the Cannery Pier Hotel in Astoria, Oregon. If you prefer to drive to the first hotel to meet the group, you may use Enterprise to rent a car at PDX and drop it off at the Enterprise office just across the street from the Cannery Pier. Please let your Trek Travel Trip Consultant know if you will be meeting the group here instead of Hotel Lucia. After a welcome lunch at the hotel, your guides will do a thorough bike fit to ensure your comfort and answer any questions you have about your trip. Please come prepared with pedals, shoes, saddle, bike fit measurements, and anything else you would like affixed to your bike. Have these items and your riding clothes packed in a small, easily accessible bag. The hotel can store your larger pieces of luggage until check-in time.

If you will be late for the pick-up or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your guides. You will receive an email a week before the trip start with their names and contact details. If you cannot reach them, please call our first hotel, Cannery Pier Hotel (503 325 4996), and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details. Your guides will be aware that you are late and will be in contact with the hotel. If you need to book transportation on your own from downtown Portland to Astoria we suggest contacting Northern Lights Towncar (www.northernlightstowncar.com, 503 760 2478). You can arrange a private shuttle for up to 3 people for around $210.

DoubleTree Hotel Missoula - Edgewater | Missoula, Montana

You will say farewell to your guides at 10:00 AM at the DoubleTree Hotel Missoula - Edgewater, Missoula, Montana. We recommend that you fly out of the Missoula International Airport (MSO), which is located about 7 miles from the DoubleTree Hotel Missoula-Edgewater. The hotel has a courtesy car that runs frees shuttles to the airport upon request. If you need transportation to the airport and the courtesy car is already booked, the front desk staff can assist you with calling a taxi, which will cost approximately $15.

Before: Portland, Oregon

If you have time before your trip begins, we recommend spending a few days in the vibrant, bustling city of Portland, Oregon. An excellent public transit system makes it easy to get around the City of Roses (so named because its climate is very conducive to growing rose bushes). Portlanders are widely known for their enthusiasm for local food, microbrews, coffee, art, and bikes. The city is divided into five sections: Southwest, Southeast, Northwest, North, and Northeast. The Willamette River flows through downtown and constitutes the boundary between east and west sections; Burnside Street divides north and south; and the North section is defined by the river to the west and Williams Avenue to the east. Locals use these sections to give directions, so it's good to be familiar with the general idea! Farm to table restaurants, food carts, bike shops, fun and funky architecture, book stores (don't miss Powell's City of Books in the heart of downtown!), parks, and museums are abundant in this quintessential city of the Pacific Northwest. Be warned though—after a few days here you may find it hard to leave! We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel.

Hotel Lucia

Located just 3 blocks from Pioneer Square in the heart of downtown, Hotel Lucia offers an ideal home base from which to explore Portland's many attractions. Chef Vitaly Paley (former Iron Chef winner) has two restaurants at the hotel, one inspired by the food cart movement and the other by innovative farm to table concepts. For a relaxing retreat and exceptional service, the boutique experience at Hotel Lucia is second to none.

Hotel deLuxe

Another Provenance Hotel (like Hotel Lucia), Hotel deLuxe offers a desirable location in the Southwest District, close to the exclusive Pearl District and Nob Hill, and only a few blocks from the MAX Light Rail System. This luxurious property is centered around a cinema theme and features a beautiful collection of historic film stills that capture the magic of Hollywood from the the 1930's, '40s, and '50s.

729 SW 15th Avenue | 503 219 2094 | www.HoteldeLuxePortland.com | ~$375

Hotel Monaco

The exotic and alluring Hotel Monaco prides itself on stirring the imagination of its guests. It's 221 rooms are all carefully designed and the hotel offers a fresh, eccentric experience right in the center of town. With a yoga mat in each room, 24-hour yoga channel, on-site fitness facility and complimentary bikes for exploring town, Hotel Monaco is an ideal location to relax for a few days before starting your long journey. You can also take advantage of the hosted wine hour in the lobby from 5:00 until 6:00 PM each day or have a goldfish delivered to your room for a little extra companionship.

506 S.W. Washington Street | 503 222 0001 | www.Monaco-Portland.com | ~$350

After: Missoula, Montana

The college town of Missoula, Montana is an excellent place to spend a few extra days unwinding after your long ride from Portland. This mountain town is located at the confluence of the Clark Fork and Bitterroot Rivers and is known as the "Hub of Five Valleys" because five mountain ranges converge here as well. Here you will find world-class fly fishing; opportunities to go whitewater rafting or kayaking; and 60,000 acres of wilderness in which to hike and play. Or kick back downtown if you prefer, with a cup of coffee from a local coffeehouse or a beer from a local brewery to toast your trip across the West! We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel.

The Resort at Paws Up

Extend your stay with some time at the well-known Resort at Paws Up to enjoy a wealth of activities at this luxury Montana ranch. Located about 35 minutes north of Missoula, the Resort is on 37,000 acres in the heart of the Blackfoot Valley. There are various options for lodging (all of which are stand-alone cabins, houses, or glamping tents) and an extensive array of guided activities available from horseback riding to fly-fishing. You can even participate in a cattle drive if you want! All rates include 3 meals a day and round-trip transportation from the Missoula International Airport.

40060 Paws Up Road | 877 588 6764 | www.PawsUp.com | ~$750

Goldsmith's Bed & Breakfast

Goldsmith’s Bed & Breakfast, located in a historic home, offers some of the closest lodging to the University of Montana. The inn is located on the banks of the Clark Fork River and it is within walking distance of the unique shops, restaurants and breweries in downtown Missoula. Choose from one of 7 cozy rooms and take advantage of the river trail, located just outside your door.

803 East Front Street | 406 728 1585 | www.MissoulaBedandBreakfast.com | ~$150

Hilton Garden Inn Missoula

This modern hotel is located close to the airport and close to downtown. It features an indoor pool, complimentary wireless internet, business center and complimentary airport shuttle.
