Time to dig out the spandex and slop on sunscreen—southwest Montana has plenty of bike races lined up this summer. (Note: If you’re male and don’t plan on winning, or overweight in either gender, be nice and wear shorts over said spandex—the stuff was designed for firm lines, not bulging contours.)
