Overview

Welcome to the beautiful Bitterroot valley my home. Surrounded by mountains, the Sapphires to East and the majestic Bitterroot Mountains to the West. The valley is approximately 96 miles long and 25 miles wide, that is 2,400 square miles to play in. There are many miles paved and unpaved road to ride and explore. There are also many miles of trails and sweet single track to ride and enjoy. Hamilton is the largest town in the valley with the most services. Stevensville is the old community in Montana, dating to 1841. As time permits I will be adding rides and trails to this work in progress.
