Fall Bozeman Montana, Mountain Biking Bozeman
Making autumn count. “Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.” ― Joni Mitchell There is an urgency to autumn, as the vast, bright horizon of summer narrows and dims, and it becomes clear that our unfulfilled plans—the backpacking trip in the Beartooths, the climbing weekend at Humbug Spires, a four-day float...

Biking after dark. Riding at night seldom begins in the dark. The ride starts in the evening, but as the days get shorter, it concludes after nightfall. Sometimes, shit happens, and two flat tires and a broken chain later you're picking your way back to the car by the light of the crescent moon and the toy of a headlamp that was only intended for...
