Propose a bike ride

Please use the "Make a ride proposal" area below to describe the ride you are proposing. Please read the Ride Leader Guidelines if you are interested in leading a ride. The "Make a ride proposal" area may be expanded by dragging the bottom right hand corner down.

Please submit your ride proposal at least 7 days prior to the ride. Complete ride qualifications are available in the MBC Policy Resolution Establishing Ride Standards.

Your announcement must include – Ride name, date and start time, miles, pace, gathering place, social event (restaurant, coffee shop), leader's name and contact info: phone number (mobile preferred) and email address.

If you have a map or other images you would like included in the announcement, please let us know and you will be contacted by the webmaster to include them on the announcement page. If you just want to propose a ride but not lead it, leave the Leader information blank. We will attempt to find a leader willing to take on your suggestion for a ride.

Please use the following format as closely as possible. You can copy and paste the bulleted list to the response area. 

  • Ride name:  
  • Date:  
  • Start time:  
  • Gathering place (complete address if possible):  
  • Distance in miles:

You can also add a free text description of the ride adding special interest comments. See example directly below:

"Loosen up your winter-creaky bones with a trip around Mount Sentinel and the University Mountains.  Meet at Great Harvest Bread Co., 1407 S. Higgins, Missoula for the circle trip south on Higgins then up Pattee Canyon Rd. (paved) and around Mt. Sentinel and University Mountain. We’ll stop at the Pattee Canyon Picnic area for a bring-your-own snack. Return via Deer Creek road (gravel) and either the Kim Williams trail (gravel) or East Missoula (paved and US 200) - route choice to be determined."
