Where to Stay

 If you’re looking for an indoor place to stay, the City Center Motel, the perfect place for cyclists 1. because of the fabulous accommodations and 2. along with the fact that you’ll likely see Keyvin at our races– he’s a wealth of knowledge about local roads and trails. City Center Motel is right in Downtown Missoula, where you’ll want to be when you’re not on your bike or in the mountains.

Not only is Bjorn, owner of Big Sky Brewery, hosting us on his property for the ride venue,  onsite camping and trailer camping is also allowed. Please signup during registration. There will be portapotties and some running potable water but no RV hookups.
