Park-2-Park Montana 2011 Registration Now Open!

The hills and rugged terrain Montana offers are no April Fool's joke, as cyclists from around the globe have discovered during their two-wheeled journeys through the aptly-named "Big Sky Country." You can discover itself this September: Park-2-Park Montana registration is officially open, as of April 1st, and organizers are expecting this unique fundraising and awareness ride to sell out before September.

"This is your chance to see two national parks and the beauty of Montana up close and personal as you bike 400 miles across Montana for a good cause,” Executive Director Ellen Bush said.

Scheduled to take place from September 12-16, 2011, the five-day cycling adventure from Glacier National Park to Yellowstone costs only $495 and includes all lodging, meals and support. Participants are asked to raise an additional $300 in fundraising to support Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Montana's services for children and families in crisis.

Last year, the ride raised $62,000 and heightened awareness of CASA programs throughout Montana.

"Once those bike riders get on their bikes, they just don't want to give it up," enthuses Ellen Bush. "They're going to smell the rain, meet a great group of people, and going to feel like a part of an epic adventure in the U.S." Read the full account of the ride here.
