Bitterroot Trail Ride - 10/30/2021

"Treffen für eine Radtour" or "Incontro e giro in bicicletta"

Either way ride with us on Saturday, October 30, 12:00 noon, on our 2nd regular Saturday Fun Ride. Check back on our website events page for continuing Saturday or Sunday Fun Rides during the continuing biking weather this Fall. Times, routes, and leaders will change as we plan additional rides this Fall.

Meet at the Dairy Queen on Higgins @ Strand, then head out the Bitterroot Trail to Lolo, then back with a turn up Lower Miller Creek Rd. to the end of the pavement and back, to finish with a loop around through the Fort Missoula Regional Park to Clements and back to the Milwaukee Trail finishing at Dairy Queen.

Last chance to get your favorite treat at the Dairy Queen on Higgins for this year. If anyone is sufficiently warmed up, we can ride the Pattee Canyon Hill Climb after fueling up!!

Gather early if you want a no-host pre-ride treat. Then we will work off some calories to provide room for a no-host reward of a Dairy Queen treat at the end.

IMPORTANT NOTICE - E-Bike restrictions on Missoula Bicycle Club rides:

We will welcome e-bike users to participate in MBC events as long as the e-bike is what is known as a Class 1 e-bike. Class 1 e-bikes will engage the electric motor only when the bike is being pedaled by the rider and will disengage the electric motor when the speed exceeds 20 miles per hour. If your e-bike does not meet these qualifications, do not bring it to an MBC ride. You can review or complete policy definition "Definition of Vehicles Permitted in MBC Sponsored Events" using the preceding link.

When submitting your RSVP, please note that the number box below "How many other people, other than yourself, are you bringing?" is asking for additional people other than your self. A zero already includes yourself as 1.

    Don’t ride alone. I probably will not complete the full ride but should make it to Lolo and back.
