    Kalispell where to rent and ride

    Hello, Iím visiting Kalispell for the first week of October. I am looking to do some trail/enduro riding. Where is a good place to rent a bike? Where would you recommend riding? I was thinking Spencer Mt or Pig Farms.

    Pig farms is more xc maze than enduro.
    Whitfish mtn and the new Haskel trails are sweet.
    Herron Park and the new Foys to Blacktail trail is good.
    Great Northern bikes and Glacier cyclery rent in Whitefish, Wheatons in Kalispell does too.
    You can get a shuttle and hit Desert Mt to add a bit of variety, Swan range has some sweet trails too. Alpine 7 is a tough climb but classic.
    I get in over my head at Spencer with my hardtail but if you like drops and jumps that is the place. PM Kanter for more ideas
    The wheel is a extension of the foot

    Doom is spot on here
    The lifts at the ski area stop running on the 23rd of sept so self powered will be necessary

    The guy Doom references as Kanter is KNTR on here
    Definitely worth pm'ing

    If you have a SO or friend who will drop you off at Big Mountain, do this. Get dropped off in the upper parking area by the Bierstube. Ride the Summit trail to the top of the mountain. Awesome views, very mellow grade, check out the 10th Mtn Div memorial on the way up, very cool. If you want old school on the way down, take Runaway Train. If you want to jump and flow, take Freebird or Kashmir. If Bierstube is open, grab a frosty beverage on their patio. Proceed down through the lower parking lot and take the Bob Cedar trail and connect with WF Trail Haskill. Ride this down to the parking area and drop a 20 in the donation box to support the local trailbuilders. Ride down the road to the main highway, hang a left and ride a few miles down to Bonsai brewing. Get a table outside and order another frosty beverage.

    I would be very surprised if the stube is open then, a great alternate plan would be to ride the whitefish trail segment from big mountain down to reservoir rd hang a right on reservoir and then left on wisconsin about a half mile to The Bonsai brewery, great beer and pretty good simple food options.
