Relatively flat and mild, much of Missoula is laid out in a grid system making biking a great option. Plus, when you choose to bike, you are making a healthy choice for you, your bank account, and the environment!

Plan your route using Missoula's network of designated bike lanes, primary commuter trails, and neighborhood greenway routes with the Missoula Bike Map.

By registering your bike on this international registry, you'll make it easier for law enforcement to reunite you with your bicycle if it is ever lost or stolen.

Neighborhood Greenways are residential streets, close to main roads and trails, with relatively low vehicle volumes and speeds, that help increase the comfort and safety for people who bike and walk.

File a report by completing a form or calling the Missoula Police Department's non-emergency line directly at 406-552-6630. Remember to also mark your bike as stolen on Project 529 if you'd  previously registered it.

Keep yourself and other cyclists safe by informing the City of Missoula of hazardous conditions in bike lanes.

MISSOULA

"Throw away the excuses of 'I’m not ready yet' or 'I don’t have the right equipment'. Just put one foot in front of the other and challenge yourself to do it, just for yourself, and no one else. Where I am in life right now is pretty great. I’m back in school getting my masters, living more productively, growing a garden, hiking with my wife, biking with my kid, volunteering, stronger, healthier, happier... all of that started with a bike ride to work.”
