A two-day, point-to-point, "stage" gran fondo featuring fully supported riding through the spectacular landscapes of Montana's remote northwest corner. Located primarily on National Forest Scenic Byways, our routes take in the stately Cabinet Mountains, serene Lake Koocanusa, the legendary Yaak Valley, and more. Participants will enjoy stellar climbs, thrilling descents, plenty of fantastic scenery and -- best of all -- virtually nonexistent traffic.

About the Yaak, Montana Area
Distinctively known as the "last great place" and proudly the farthest northwest community in Montana!
The Yaak offers an abundance of year round activity from fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, kayaking, huckleberry and mushroom picking, amazing photography and more!
The Yaak river (named by the indians - meaning arrow) flows through the mountainous northwest Montana community and meets the Kootenai river (also named by the indians - meaning bow).
The area is mostly owned by the Forest Service with only a small fraction of land owned by home and business owners.
Rugged and remote can best describe the area. A number of those who live here enjoy the solitude and are even "off the grid".
The Yaak offers an excellent and definitely realistic get-away from the hustle and bustle of city environments. Cell phones don't work here (so no Verizon guy - we can't hear you now), and internet access is either from satellite or dial-up.
Driving in the area is an adventure all in itself. The amazing beauty of the mountains, forests, the Yaak river streaming through the hills, the falls, and of course the wildlife! Bring your camera and plan on taking your time when traveling up "The Yaak" - you will be amazed!
I hope that the information you find on this website will provide you with the answers you need in planning your upcoming week-end or vacation.
