The Cycling House is really looking forward to our August Mountain Bike Camp in Whitefish Montana. The dates are the 24th-29th of August, and the trip is a perfect opportunity to rip some trail in Glacier National Park’s backyard (yes, there is a good chance you will see snow in August). We’ll be doing classic Whitefish rides on this trip such as: The Whitefish Trail and Big Mountain, but bring your running shoes if you’re into that, because there will be ample opportunity for exploring and trail running as well.
In recent years, Montana has begun to pop up on the radar of mountain bikers, and Whitefish has become a major destination. We’re so pleased to be able to offer this camp in this beautiful place. With delicous catered meals and a house minutes away from the trail system, our goal is to allow you to eat, sleep and ride for a week. We’re looking to fill the last few spots on this trip, so we’re offering $200 off the the sticker price for this trip. Come ride trail with us in Whitefish for $1,595!
To sign up for this trip give us a call at 406-219-1318, or fill out our reservation form. The cost to hold your spot is $795.50. There is also an camping and non-rider rate. Dogs are welcome at this venue!

You probably know by know that The Cycling House is based out of Montana, and we love our state oh so much. There’s no denying that one of the crown jewels of Montana is Glacier National Park, located in the Northwester sector of Montana and straddling the border of the US and Canada. Often referred to as “The Crown of the Continent,” Glacier encompasses over 1 million acres and includes parts of two mountain ranges, over 130 named lakes, more than 1,000 different species of plants, and hundreds of species of animals.
Coming up this summer we’re offering two scenic rides in the Whitefish/Glacier area. Our first is our Montana Mountain Bike Camp in Whitefish, from August 24th through 29th. This super-fun camp will take place at the Whitefish Bike Retreat; a dedicated cycling facility located on more than 19 acres of wilderness adjacent to the Whitefish Trail network. We’ll spend the week enjoying challenging climbs, sweet descents, and all that the magical town of Whitefish has to offer. Whitefish is full of everything a cyclist could ever hope for including great espresso/bike shop combos at Great Northern Cycles, delicious beer at the Great Northern Brewing Company, and the all-important Sweet Peaks Ice Cream Shop (best.ice-cream.ever).

In September we’re so excited to offer our Glacier Loop from the 2nd through the 8th. Glacier National Park is such a special place, and we feel so honored to be able to offer this tour with two guides who grew up in nearby Whitefish, and two guides who have worked full seasons in the park. Our mileage on this ride will be between 30 and 50 miles, leaving us plenty of time in the afternoon for hiking and exploring on Glacier’s more than 700 miles of trails. We’ll be staying in hotels, modern cabins and lodges, and all meals are included. This is a fantastic opportunity to see one of the most beautiful spots in the world from your bicycle saddle!
Signing up for these trips is easy! Just go to TRIP RESERVATIONS or give us a call to make your $500 deposit. Come ride with us in Montana!
I’d like to introduce myself as the latest member of The Cycling House Team. My name is Sarah, and I’m the Camp Coordinator, which basically means call me anytime about questions you might have about upcoming or past trips, logistics questions as you are planning your trip, or if you just want to talk about a good ride you had
I’m from Virginia originally but I moved out to Montana for the mountains about 10 years ago and in my spare time I like to cook, drink coffee, run, ski, and of course, ride bikes. I usually measure exciting times in my life by which ride I was on when they happened. For example:
Two years ago, I got engaged on a mountain bike trip in Baja.
My fiance Josh and I decided to test our commitment before we got married by taking a 4 month bike trip from Alaska to Mexico via the Great Divide.
We decided it was worth the plunge and got married in a bike-y ceremony last summer.
I’m looking forward to seeing which rides I go on with you and The Cycling House!

Whitefish, MT | Glacier National Park Loop | September 2-8, September 17-23, 2014 | $1995
Montana has intrigued adventurous individuals for many years; its snow capped mountains, rugged terrain, wildlife and small population contribute to the old west appeal. In the winter, skiers have traveled to Montana to escape the long lift lines and found champagne powder, amazing terrain and great people.

Our upcoming Mallorca (Majorca) trips were recently featured in a New York Times article by Rachel Lee Harris. Her article does a great job at explaining what we do at The Cycling House and what our guests can expect when joining us on an awesome cycling experience.
Our Mallorca trips are quickly approaching with just a few spots remaining. Our first trip starts on May 2nd and we’ll run trips all the way into June. Checkout the Majorca trip page for more information. Call us at 406-370-7601 or email us to learn more about our trips.
Cycling House Staff are always up for a good time
Interesting note. The article uses the english version of the island’s name, Majorca. Both spellings are correct and Mallorca (the version we normally use) is the spanish way of spelling the island’s name.

The Cycling House Lamb Burgers
Naturally, lamb is a very lean meat. Therefore, you must add moisture to keep it from drying out during the grilling process. When you grill any meat, it will dehydrate and become tough. To retain moisture, and add delicious flavor to our lamb burgers, we add onions and olive oil.
Cycling House Branded Buns!
Our favorite bun choices are a rustic sourdough loaf, or a good old english muffin.
Servings: 3-4 people
- 1lb ground lamb
- 1/4 1 yellow onion (diced)
- 2-3 garlic cloves (diced)
- 1 Tbs Olive Oil (when adding additional pounds of meat, add 1 more Tbs per pound)
- 1/2 Tbs Cumin
- 1/2 Tbs Coriander
- 2 tsp stoneground mustard
- 1 tsp salt
Dice onion and garlic. Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl. Mix and form patties for your individual burgers.
These burgers pair well with sweet potato fries, jicama and watermelon salad and roasted root vegetable salad.
TCH Chimichurri Sauce (Great on all meats, veggies, salads and potato dishes)
- 7 garlic cloves
- 1 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
- 3/4 cup fresh parsley
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 tsp course ground pepper
- 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
- 2 Tbs lime juice
- 1 Tbs soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp zest of lime
- 1/3 cup olive oil
Use a food processor or vita mix add garlic and chop. Once chopped add the next 4 ingredients until pulsed. Add the final ingredients. Gradually add oil in order to emulsify it. The process of emulsification allows the oil to be fully incorporated into the dressing. If not added slowly, the oil will separate from the final dressing. This process will also allow you to control the thickness of your dressing.
