$$$ Cycle Greater Yellowstone benefits the ABWF…! $$$

Cycle Greater Yellowstone is coming to our area again this year! This popular cycling event is put on each summer by the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, and this year it starts and ends in Red Lodge, MT–Sat., August 10, 2019 through Fri., August 16, 2019. Contact David at 406-425-1944, or email [email protected] if you’d like to be part of this outstanding event!

Cycle Greater Yellowstone needs lots of volunteer helpers along the route, and they are willing to provide $$$ financial assistance $$$ to local organizations like the ABWF who round up volunteers for them! So here it is…The ABWF is officially seeking volunteers to help staff a handful of check stations along the route and provide riders with assistance. If you and a partner (2-3 per station are optimal) sign up as volunteers on behalf of the ABWF, you can bring us a nice $$$ check $$$ that benefits the ABWF! And you will be doing Cycle Greater Yellowstone and the Greater Yellowstone Coalition a huge service! It’s that simple!

  • August 11th: Columbus
  • August 12th: Lower Luther Road
  • August 13th: Beartrack Trail Head, the Summit, the Chief Joseph/212 pullout.
  • August 16th: Clark Fork Trail Head east of Cooke City, the Fish Hatchery in Clark, Bear Creek

To sign up call David at 406-425-1944, or email [email protected]. The last time Cycle Greater Yellowstone came through Red Lodge, we made a nice profit thanks to the good folks at the Greater Yellowstone Coalition!

This year’s event begins and ends in Red Lodge, Montana and features rides into Columbus, Absarokee, Nye, Roscoe, Cooke City, and Belfry with two amazing climbs: Beartooth Pass and Chief Joseph Pass. It’s an unforgettable, 6-day ride for the many riders who are signed up. It’s a popular annual event. 2019 is SOLD OUT!

Help Mount Wilderness Panels around the A-B:

The Custer Gallatin NF needs help replacing some brand new panels on signboards around the A-B Wilderness. The ABWF received a grant for $20,000 to replace the panels that have faded, gone missing, gotten shot up, or needed updating. The panels are finished and are waiting to be mounted on their proper sign-boards. If you have handy skills, we can use you!

Call David at 406-425-1944 or send us an email to [email protected] if you are interested in helping!

This information panel is at Daisy Pass near Cooke City. Help us replace panels that need it!
