Whether it’s a multi-day cycling trek you’re after, or mountain biking on some of the world’s best singletrack trails, riders of all ages and skills will feel right at home biking in Big Sky Country. There are routes aplenty for everyone from the novice biker to the avid cyclist. And, biking isn't just a summer activity. During the spring, Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks open their roads up to bikers only, so you can enjoy the parks' splendor on two wheels without cars whizzing by. Chase the fall colors on any of Montana's backroads. For some winter fun, strap on some fat tires and ride over the snow.
The Butte 100 Bike Race, which bills itself as the Most Difficult Mountain Bike Race in the country, is a sporting event to behold. Extreme mountain bikers, tackling extreme routes in the high-altitude mountains south of Butte in 50- and 100-mile races, are awe-inspiring in their singular focus to make it to the finish line.
