Seeley 55/35/22

JULY 15, 2017

EVENT

The Seeley 55/35/22 is our most beginner friendly event, but that doesn’t mean it’s not spectacular. Each of the three distances offers winding singletrack and stunning views of the Mission Mountain Wilderness. The 55 mile course skirts the foot of the Swan Crest and takes you about as close as you can get to the heart of the Bob Marshall Wilderness on a bike.

And that’s fitting, because we’ve partnered again this year with the Bob Marshall Music Festival to ensure that this is one of the best weekends of the summer. Come on up to Seeley Lake and race your heart out, but save a little for the dance floor. Discounted festival entry is available when you sign up for the race and the music at the same time!

COURSE

The Seeley 55/35/22 is our most beginner friendly event, and least technical courses. Each course offers gradual forest road climbing and flowing singletrack descending. The different lengths offer a little something for everyone, and this year’s courses each have a bit more trail riding than 2016.

The 2017 edition will start and finish at the new Bob Marshall Music Festival venue, a few miles south of town, so expect total mileages to be a touch longer than last year. This is a great opportunity for a last tune-up before the Butte 50 or 100!
