Women's Biking Apparel, Bozeman Mountain Biking, Bozeman Pedal Project
Women's biking apparel. For me, warm weather and nice days mean only one thing: time to get out on the bike and hit up our area trails. While it's possible to ride and have fun in any old athletic shorts and a tanktop, gear can make a difference,  and the right kit can vastly improve your experience. Here are some women’s-specific products that...
Montana Backpacking, Thermarest EvoLite
Let’s get one thing straight: sleeping on the ground sucks. But it sucks by degrees. There’s the four-inch-car-camping-mattress kind of sleeping on the ground, which doesn’t suck that much, and there’s the got-caught-outside-and-had-to-spend-the-night kind, which sucks a lot. Somewhere closer to the former, there’s backpacking, and sleeping with...

The hype behind climbing lingo. Like all outdoor sports, climbing has its own jargon, and the terminology can be overwhelming. If you’ve ever been around a climber or hung out at Spire, you know what I’m talking about. In a given exchange, enough superfluous vocabulary is thrown around that a non-climber might comprehend half, at most. If you’re...
Ridge Run training with Swiss Fit Montana. This year, I wanted to incorporate some new training strategies to meet my goals of improving my time and getting stronger, so as not to break down physically after my third consecutive Ridge Run. To achieve these goals, I started working out with Will Caton at Swiss Fit Montana. During my first session,...
Tracking our miles for area trails. When I first heard about the Gallatin Valley Land Trust's Trail Challenge, I thought it'd be just that—a challenge.
