Anybody ridden that? Could it be done on a road bike with 25s?

I'd be leery of the gravel sections on 25c. More importantly, I would be concerned about the lack of services for 120 miles, especially if it's hot.


BTW...Are you planning on heading south from Belle Fouche? Spearfish Canyon (U.S. 14 Alt from Spearfish to Savoy) is a great ride. And Spearfish itself is a neat little town with a free fish hatchery museum next to it's lovely municipal park/campground.

I ended up avoiding Camp Crook Rd. I did some gravel roads in SD earlier in the tour that were a little more loose than I liked on 25s (6412 from the NE/SD border to Provo and some roads near Mystic, SD). I took a little detour on the Mickleson Trail north of Mystic, and it was actually an easier surface to ride than the gravel road. Mileage was about the same. And yes, I did go through Spearfish Canyon, which was awesome.


Back to the point. I ended up using 212 through WY to MT, then north on 323 and 7 in MT. Those were all fine. No problems with traffic at all. Camp Crook Rd would have saved me about 5 miles, but I have a feeling it would have been slower with all the gravel. I bet all those gravel roads would be fun out there with a more appropriate bike, though.

On Saturday I finished up two weeks in NW Montana. Had a blast.
