BIKE the MMAPP
Join us September 24, 2022 for an approximately 26 mile scenic bike tour at the base of the Mission Mountains (with the option to add additional distance on scenic roads for those seeking a longer ride). This year we’ll be riding a winding route through the Jocko Valley near Arlee, MT. Along the way, riders will stop and visit four to five local, sustainable farms with local food bites offered at each stop. The ride will be on primarily rural roads, many of whic are gravel. Please be prepared for our rural roads with a bike you are comfortable riding on gravel. This years route includes seven miles of gravel allowing riders to access our rural farms.
We are offering an early-bird rate until July 1st, of $70/person. Registrations after July 1st will be $85/each. The registration fee includes your ride, local food from Mission Valley farms and producers, music, and a commemorative item to keep. The day starts and ends in the heart of the quaint, agricultural community of Arlee. We’ll serve coffee before embarking at 10am, but please eat breakfast prior to arrival so you’re ready for a full day of riding. We’ll tour farms along the route and light bites of local food will be served at each stop along the ride. We’ll end the day back in Arlee for a delicious farm-to-table dinner prepared with local ingredients and beer from Ronan Cooperative Brewery. There will also be local music from the Western Montana Musicians Cooperative and an artisan’s farmers market at the end of the bike ride. This is a low-waste event, and we encourage riders to bring back their cups and mugs from previous years to use at the dinner. We look forward to seeing you in September! #MMAPP2022 #bikethemmapp
