1595 Grand Ave, Billings, MT 59102

Noon to 4pm

 To Benefit:  

Do you like doing your part to support a good cause? I’ve got a fun challenge for you if you live in the Billings area or are just visiting: Gear up for our first local Cycle for a Cause!

Our first Cycle for a Cause is a fun and fit activity for BTN Members and or anyone that would like to pedal for a cause.

Ready. Set. Ride… Billings TrailNet event hosted by our friends over at Yellowstone Fitness Center, Billings, Montana! Team Registration is only $50, but your team has to raise a minimum of $500 in order to take part in the ride on February 24th, 2018 at Yellowstone Fitness Center. We have only 20 bikes available. Register Early!!

If you need a goal this month, make it this one. Ask your friends, family, and co-workers to help you support the Billings TrailNet Organization (BTN). By donating to BTN, you’ll be helping our organization raise money for our trail system. Plus, it helps increase awareness and encourage use of the trails in our community.  Billings trail advocates and planners have done extensive research and assessment to create a master trail plan.  You can view these documents by going to Billings TrailNet Resource page.  If you or someone you know believe in Billings TrailNet’s mission, hop on that two-wheeler and start pedaling away on February 24th!! The ride is 4 hours long and will make you fitter, stronger, and most definitely inspired!

Our goal is to help the Billings TrailNet raise at least $10,000 to fund Billings trail system. We hope that each team will participate in the Cycle for a Cause to the best of their ability. If each team raises $500, we will achieve our goal. We’re hoping to make this Cycle for a Cause the best ever, so the more contributions you raise, the more successful we’ll be at achieving our goal. Thank you very much for your participation!
