Will have an opportunity to ride something good in the northern plains states in the next couple of months and wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions for 'must ride' routes or roads.
I'm thinking like the Avenue of the Giants, Capital Reef Scenic Drive, North Cascades highway, Columbia River Gorge, Highway to the Sun type of recommendations, obviously with less vertical relief, if the upper midwest has anything remarkable in the way of scenic routes.
Maybe with a great view of Mount Rushmore? a beautiful river valley with willows and cliff escarpments thru prairielands?
any tips or highlights would be greatly appreciated!
