This team has been working together to put on large scale bike events together for almost 10 years. We took a break like everyone else in 2020 and ran successful but smaller events in 2021. We're looking forward to people visiting Montana, giving our small towns the economic boost they all appreciate from events and being able to give back to the communities again. Based in Red Lodge, Montana, Jennifer comes from 20+ years of organizing marathons, triathlons, road races, and serves on the Board of Directors for the Beartooth Recreational Trails Association and Bicycle Tour Network.
We are going into our second year operating under our new name and we couldn't be more excited to see our gravel, mountain bike and road touring enthusiasm grow. Each of our tours benefits local nonprofits and also invites nonprofits to join in on the fun and fundraise more!
MCP also works to partner and use small and grass roots businesses for cyclists gear and event products. Some of these businesses include Headwaters Studio, Earlywood Designs, Flora Velo, Bivo, Glassisum Designs, By All Means Beer, Outbound Lighting and Red Lodge Events.
We are strongly committed to sustainable practices in our events and in life. While the pandemic has made it a little harder to use reusable products and items in bulk, we will continue to reuse, reduce and recycle. We encourage everyone to think about the footprint left behind.
All of our events will encourage participants to bring their own water bottles and use reusable items as much as possible. We understand the pandemic makes this a little harder, but let's do our best when we can!
Let's work together to leave the places we visit just as we found them, and in some cases, cleaner.
