    Hello Montanans... anyone out here on RM?

    I'm looking forward to a great season of oh-so-relaxing DH at Big Sky and epic XC across the state (and perhaps other states) and would like to meet some others who feel the same.

    Please shout out if you're from Montana and what your bike plans are this summer!

    Don't have any pictures at the moment, but I'll start a format...

    Real world handle: Brad Alexander
    Time on earth: 27.79 years
    Place on earth: Billings, MT
    Rides I roll: Giant Trance & Iron Horse Sunday
    Where I roll: The trail I'm on at a particular moment is basically my favorite.
    The way I roll: Usually flowy and relaxed with the occasional DH crash to spice things up.
    What I quaff: Rejuvelac, green smoothies, filtered water.
    Day job: digital print technician & sign designer.
    Smoke/Drink: 1-beer-max and very rarely.

    I basically have very few people to ride with right now and it's sad... because I'm really excited about summer!

    So... I'm just lurking a bit and seeing who's online at the forums - there aren't any Montana MTB meetup.com groups, are there? Anyone interested in starting one?

    Kalispell here. We ride Fernie and Whitefish for Dh/Fr. Kalispell has the XC. We ride it all. I look forward to Big Sky this year.

    Went on my first road ride today!! I only did 22-23 miles but it felt GOOD.

    Let me know when it opens and the conditions are good. Its been raining and snowing here, but the snow is melting. Ive been road riding a lot. Keep in touch.

    If you like resort riding, you have to try Fernie.

    Moving to Montana at the end of the month. Cooke City to be specific. That's right... Cooke City.
    I'm down with DH/Freeride (looking for any races nearby) and trail riding. I will also be spending most weekends down in the Jackson, WY area.

    If your looking for extra let me know, I have stuff that needs to be done all the time and can email files etcc. I do digital printing, wraps, signs etc...............and alot more................... Here in california and half the time dont have time to do layouts. I dont ride in the NW now as I reside in So cal again but Kanter is cool as well as a couple of others and tyler from (twenty6 products) rides, look up his site and give him a shout out!
    Do the Beacon Bomber as well in Spokane, Its a blast. You can venture to Tamarack and Brundage as well and Slate creek has epic single trac (bring GPS) if you get to N. Idaho and courdelane is AMAZING as far as the riding (DH/FR/All MTN/XC) Best kept secrets are there.

    I'm in Bozeman and my bike plans for the summer are to ride the **** out of my bike. :D

    Planning on a couple 'o trips to Big Sky here and there, provided they sort out the lift situation. I'd like to start building some more FR oriented stuff closer to town though.

    Try and make it to Fernie or Panarama.
