The race is ON!

Please note, the decision to hold this year's race will continue to be somewhat fluid and subject to change based on the any recommendations and requirements from the State of Montana and local health officials. 

Our primary concern is the health and safety of our riders, volunteers and members of the communities we ride through and we will continue to monitor any concerns and update as needed. All riders will be asked to adhere to any and all State guidelines that may be in place during the race. Currently there is a mandatory mask mandate for all counties that have 4 or more active cases. We will asking all riders to wear masks whenever entering a business. 

Be safe, stay healthy and continue to ride

1,770 miles

 100,000'+ of climbing

 Mixed surface


Montana Bike Odyssey is a fixed route, self-supported, single stage, mixed surface cycling race that starts and finishes in Bozeman Montana. The 1,770 mile route travels clockwise around Montana, passing through the Rocky Mountains of Western Montana, across the expansive Prairies and Breaks of Central Montana (including two ferry crossings over the Missouri River), over the 10,947' high Beartooth Pass, through the Northern portion of Yellowstone National Park and back to Bozeman. It follows state and county paved roads, maintained gravel roads and unmaintained dirt roads connecting rural communities, often spread apart by long distances.

The route shares 385 miles with the Tour Divide race route and 75 miles with the TransAm race route.

Expect to experience all that the vast and diverse landscape of the "Big Sky State" has to offer on this epic and challenging route.

“I am in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection, but with Montana it is love, and it's difficult to analyze love when you're in it.”  John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America
