Montana Bicycle Ride

If you've wanted to do a fully supported bike ride in the most beautiful parts of Montana, this might be the ride. The ride is seven days in early August around Flathead Lake, then up to the Canadian border then along the Kootenay River. Limited space, if this is for you, sign up soon. http://www.bicycleridesnw.org/mbr_summary.html

That looks like it should be good fun. I've been all around that area, but not for three or four years. It is really pretty. Any idea what the rider limit might be? I could not find that information but perhaps I missed it.

That group usually limits riders at 250 -300 range.

I've done a couple of self-supported tours in that area - on the Northern Tier and the Great Divide. It's beautiful country!

This ride filled out and registration is closed. They also filled the waiting list. I'm glad that I registered early, I'm in for the ride and looking forward to a Big Sky adventure.
