Prepare for the Ride
Rider Village is where it all comes together at Bike MS: Ride the Sky! This year, we are excited to announce a NEW Rider Village location: Bridger Bowl. Located only 20 minutes from downtown Bozeman, Bridger Bowl is a “natural, undeveloped, big mountain playground with a friendly local vibe.” It’s the perfect place to start and finish the ride!
Rider Village is the home of Team Row, the exciting start/finish celebrations, team photos, parties, the beer garden and much, much more! Check in at registration, stash your bike in the bike corral, enjoy a tasty meal or beverage and fully experience the community of Bike MS!
