We love supporting the local communities that we ride in. Whether it’s youth cycling programs in Tucson, Arizona or building trails around Missoula, Montana we love to be involved and help out where we can. Supporting charitable causes and getting more folks on bikes has been an important part of our mission from the beginning.
Montana has become the newest state leagues in the growing National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA), an interscholastic mountain biking group in the U.S. This is big, big news for youth cycling in Montana. Montana League Director and Olympian, Sam Schultz is also a long time Cycling House guide and camp director and longtime Missoula, MT childhood friend of Owen Gue, President of The Cycling House. Sam and Owen both remember the days of growing up being young bike racers in Montana. Often times there would be 2 or 3 other juniors to race against in the entire state! This new NICA league changed that and ultimately young riders and racers will have many other peers to compete against, build friendships and camaraderie and have fun! How can you help? NICA MT is predominately funded by private donations so we encourage you to consider supporting NICA MT and the future riders of America. We are so proud to be a supporter of the Montana NICA League!Support NICA MT & Learn More

RATPOD CHARITY RIDE
RATPOD is a wonderful 126 mile ride with an incredible fundraising effort for Camp Mak-A-Dream. The route is fantastic and the food stops are plentiful and tasty which is probably why Brendan and I pick this ride as one of our top one-day events every year. Why do we support RATPOD? It’s all about bringing Cycling House guests and our staff together for a fun party, big amazing ride in our beautiful home state, and most importantly, support the kids of Camp Mak-A-Dream. We believe in this cause and we’re all in here at TCH! We’ve had many of special moments on this ride over the years. Owen Gue, our President is also on the RATPOD Ride Committee so the more involved we get the more we see first hand what goes into putting this event on and the huge, positive impact that comes from it. Ultimately our goal is to raise money for the kids and create some more lifetime memories with the amazing friends that travel with us at The Cycling House.Come ride RATPOD with us!
