Adventure Cycling has rooms blocked at the following hotels. Please mention the Montana Bicycle Celebration when making your reservations.

University of Montana Housing: Download the UM Housing Application to make reservations. Cost is $36.38 per person/night for a single room and $22.47 per person/night for a double room. Beds will be reserved on a first come first serve basis. The deadline for the application and payment is June 22nd. More information about UM guest housing. Bike info: It is fine to take bicycles into residence halls. Bikes cannot be left unaccompanied in the hallways, lobby, or common areas. Guests are assigned to the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th floors of Knowles Halls and will need to carry bikes up the stairs, as bikes will not fit in the elevator. Guests assigned to a single room will have enough room to accommodate their bike in their room. Guests assigned to a double room can make it work, but may find there is not much room to maneuver around. There are bike racks outside, but we advise against locking up expensive bikes outside. For accessibility and ADA requirements, guests should not lock their bicycles to the hand rails.
Shady Spruce Hostel: Reserve online and use promo code ACA16 or call 406-285-1197. Adventure Cycling members receive a discount of $10 on any of their rooms. Please show your membership card at check-in. Offer valid between May 1 and September 1, 2016. Please note that the Shady Spruce Hostel has no vacancy July 15 & 16.
Travelers’ Rest State Park will offer limited camping for those arriving at the park by bicycle on the nights of July 15 and 16. Camping will take place in a designated area near the Visitors Center, with restrooms, water and a shared fire ring available for all campers. Electrical outlets will be available for charging technology (phones, tablets, etc.) during Visitor Center hours each day. Opportunities are limited and reservations are required so anyone interested is encouraged to plan ahead. Cost for Montana residents is $6 per person per night, with discounts available for senior citizens and anyone with a disability.
