    Check out the Trans-Montana Ride!

    Last January, 22 riders completed the Trans Montana Charity Ride. During the week-long trip many other riders joined this dedicated group of men and women riding across the beautiful state of Montana. The charity ride supports NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) which works with various schools, military groups and agencies to provide support for mental illness such as PTSD and teen suicide prevention. All of the money raised stays within the Montana Chapter of NAMI and this year they launched a Teen Suicide Prevention Campaign in high schools across the state--sadly, Montana ranks #1 in teen suicide per capita.

    The TMR is a week-long ride visiting six different trail systems. This year, it started off with a kick-off banquet in Columbia Falls hosted by the Flathead Snowmobile Association (FSA). An auction was held and the group raised over $2900 of the $10,500 total that will be given to NAMI. The group then rode Skyland (Marias Pass area), Seeley Lake, Lolo Pass, Hamilton, Wise River and ended with an awards banquet in West Yellowstone.

    The TMR is an annual ride and everyone is invited to join either for the entire ride or just one day. Men and women ranging from teens to 73 years young rode all week long.

    Join the next TMR January 17-24th if you would like to have a chance to see six of the best areas across the state (each guided by a local club). This is an excellent way to experience some of Montana’s best riding areas and make a pile of new friends along the way! The TMR is also looking for corporate sponsors--it’s a great way to get your company name out there for all to see!
