The Bangtail Divide Trail offers 23 miles of singletrack with about 2500 vertical feet of climbing and, so I am told, over 70 switchbacks, all within 15 minutes of town. I ride this trail at least a couple of times per year, typically solo (as was the case for this ride). Aside from very fast descents and lots of ALL THE SUDDEN tight switchbacks (some with substantial exposure), the trail is not very technical. The cranks get turned plenty, however, from both the climb and many miles atop the divide.

Flux is an ideal bike for this trail (Bridger Bowl in background):


Great views like the northern Bridgers (great bc skiing):


More singletrack than you can shake a stick at:




Mountain meadows and more views (Crazy Mountains and Bridgers):

Very jealous of that riding location you have there! The views are the type that cause me injury. I find myself staring off into distant picturesque views not paying attention to the trail I am rolling down. Some day have to get up there and see them for myself.

The views are definately sweet. The trail also has far more interesting sections where you can't look at the scenery, but as a solo rider my camera and I were not taking pictures at those points - I was focused on the task at hand.

I also wanted to put up some XC pictures to add to the diversity of trip reports posted here. No rocks or bike parts were injured during this project. :D

Question for you CD...

How would Montana be for a biking vacation? A buddy and I are trying to get a week long biking vacation put together for the end of the summer or early fall and those pics look like the type of riding we like (no big drops or hucking). Any info would be appreciated:thumbsup:
