Bangtail Bikes and Montana State University
Bangtail Bikes partners with and sponsors the local college cycling club. We offer discounts on bikes and accessories for all the A & B team members. Check out the MSU Cycling Club Facebook page for the most updated info on local races and events.
Mission: Through racing and training we wish to raise awareness of cycling as a good way to stay in shape and to help build friendships that will last beyond college. As much as we want to represent our school to other collegiate teams our main goal is to make cycling a larger part of the Bozeman and MSU community.
Books for Bikes
Bozeman’s two Masonic Lodges have been coordinating the program for nearly 10 years. Masonic Lodge No. 6 recently provided bikes for Gallatin Gateway School’s children. But the lodge members leave goals up to the schools.
“Here’s the bikes; you come up with the program,” Curtis said.
The bikes were purchased at a reduced rate from Specialized through a grant written by Rob Funderburk, manager of Bangtail Bikes and XC Skis. This is the third year Bangtail and Specialized have teamed up with the Masons for the program.
Before announcing the winners, Walthall pointed to the shiny red, green and purple bikes lined up on stage and said, “This is exciting.”
“But what is really exciting is to take reading with you forever,” he added.

We are WOMEN who pedal all types of bikes in the Bozeman area. We post bike related events, share bike related information and have lots of fun riding bikes together. Mondays are group ladies road rides, and Wednesdays are ladies group mountain rides. But any day is a great day to ride and all members are encouraged to connect to other members, and to post and invite riders, too.
