Rides for All Ages and Abilities
Skalkaho Mountain Tour: Get your heart pounding and overlook the Bitterroot Valley on a 48 mile non-competitive ride through the BItterroot National Forest.

The Skalkaho Mountain Tour starts promptly at 7:00am.
Sleeping Child Ride: This is a great ride for the whole family. Take a scenic ride at a Sunday-pace up and back Sleeping Child Road, about 18-20 miles, and pedal by open agricultural lands, the Bitterroot River, and the Como Peaks. Rolling Start from 9-11AM.
Kids' Dirt Road Derby: The youngsters can engage in friendly competition in the afternoon with a race around McCarthy Loop (about a mile) and a straight quarter mile race in front of Red Barn Bicycles. Excitement, laughter, and prizes are all part of the fun! Derby starts at 1:30pm.
BBQ Lunch at Noon
All that riding is bound to work up some healthy appetites. We'll be grillin' burgers and serving sides for hungry riders and volunteers. Vegetarian option available.
