    Helena 2013

    Completely dry and open for business, from the Ridge into town.

    Agreed. We did the ridge yesterday morning and it was perfect. The sad parts are we only saw a couple of other bikers and the Blackfoot wasn't open when we got back to town.

    You must have been riding too early in the day. Wifey and I started at about 12:30 and saw two other groups of Bozemanites and a handful of others. It seemed half of people we saw on the trail (including hikers/runners) ended up at Blackfoot.

    What a great day it was!

    Yeah, it was a beautiful day. I saw lots of traffic when I rode in the late AM, including uphill (both foot and bike) traffic on the Horse. I don't get that.

    We got started about 11:15 from the top and were done by about 12:45 or so. More hiker traffic towards Mt Helena. I've run the ridge before but that was my first ride and it was a blast. Hopefully they'll start up the trolly again this summer to take me to the top.

    Yup; it starts on June 1. It probably won't run the following weekend due to Governor's Cup, since that requires a bunch of downtown street closures.
