Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
Team Great Divide is a local, competition based team affiliated with the Great Divide Cyclery. Team members interests include triathalon, mountain bike racing, road racing, and cyclocross. The team has four main goals:
1. To support cyclists and cycling in the Helena community.
2. To support competitive riders in the Helena area by providing training opportunities, a regular schedule of competitive events, and financial support.
3. To sponsor and organize competitive events in the Helena area.
4. To provide an opportunity for fitness oriented cyclists to learn training technique and competitive skills.
Actively competing is not a condition of membership...actively participating in the local cycling community, however, is required.

Helena is fortunate to have two very active cycling organizations. Complimenting the Great Divide Cycling Team is the Helena Bicycle Club which offers a full slate of organized rides for those interested in a less competitive cycling environment. This is a well organized club with lots of friendly people.
The Great Divide Cyclery organizes and/or supports a wide variety of weekly rides in the Helena area. These are great opportunities to meet other cyclists, learn the local trail system, and have a great time!
