Missoula Bicycle Club welcomes all cyclists to join us on our rides. Club members may attend as many rides as they like and first time guests are welcome also. If you continue to ride with us, our insurance coverage requires that you become a member of the club.  

Lead a ride.  Volunteer to lead one of the MBC rides on our calendar or submit a request to add your favorite ride to our calendar.  It's fun, you'll meet some great people and no experience is required.  Contact our ride leader coordinator for details. View our ride leader guidelines. Submit a ride proposal here.

Events will also be listed chronologically below with more information about the ride or event. Some events will offer an option to sign up (RSVP) so that we can have an idea of how many people to expect for the event.

    Spirit of Peace in Missoula, MT

    MBC Member Meeting May 21, 2019

    "Meet and Greet Potluck" on May 21, 2019 (one week from today): This event is open to the bicycling public. Trippers, come and meet our leaders! We'll start with a Mexican potluck, so please bring your favorite Mexican dish.

    After the potluck, Rob Gillespie of AXIS Physical Therapy of Missoula will demonstrate a "Bike Fit," a measured  examination of bike vs. rider to get the best fit. This is a professional service he provides at AXIS. If we have time, he'll provide info on pre and post-ride stretches. Doors open at 5:30 with the potluck starting at 6:00, at the Spirit of Peace building at 506 Toole Avenue, which is near the railroad bike/ped bridge in downtown Missoula.

    Meanwhile, I hope to get as many leaders to attend as possible, so our club riders can "Meet and Greet" our leaders at the potluck.
