Northern United States (NUS) is one of Bike & Build’s original routes, having been around since 2003. Kicking off in Portsmouth, NH, riders start traversing New England mountains on day one, rolling through the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks en route to Niagara Falls.
The Midwest will play some of its aces, as rider swoop through Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Chicago, Madison, and St. Paul and spend close to two weeks in Minnesota, dontchaknow. Then the west starts to call and the route skims the Canadian border through North Dakota and Montana with Glacier National Park waiting on the other side. The route is capped off by the Cascade Mountains in Washington and wraps in Bellingham.
