Thank You, Montana Bicycle Celebration Sponsors, Volunteers, and Participants

August 17, 2016

Volunteers Robin Shields, David French, and Gay Blech assemble name badges before the start of the Montana Bicycle Celebration.

Without the support of Montana Bicycle Celebration sponsors, volunteers, and participants, the weekend would not have been a success. Adventure Cycling Association appreciates the wide-ranging support from industry sponsors, volunteers from near and far, and participants whose energy and enthusiasm made for a fulfilling and exciting weekend celebration of bike travel, connections, and friendships. 

Super volunteer Steven Powell organized a display of 1970s and 1980s cycling memorabilia. 
The Florence Civic Club provided homemade cookies, snacks, and water for cyclists.
Some of the hard-working Montana Bicycle Celebration volunteers participated in the Bitterroot Trail ride.
Gay and Dusty Blech presented during “Short Stories from the Road” and volunteered throughout the weekend.
Richie Doyle, aka Meriwether Lewis, lead the Bitterroot Trail ride.

Much appreciation goes to the 40th anniversary sponsors.

Representatives from many of the sponsors were able to attend the Montana Bicycle Celebration. Sponsor banners were displayed at the Friday reception.
Thank you to the sponsors who were able to participate in the bicycle expo after the Bitterroot Trail ride.
