Helena's FREE  Bike Shuttle

We are planning another great Trail Rider season for 2019. We are so thankful to have a wonderful community of sponsors that have continued to make this program FREE to the user. Be sure to give them back some love and check out their businesses.

In our third year of running the Trail Rider program, Bike Helena and Visit Helena Montana continue to strive to make the shuttle a resource for all trail users including mountain bikers, trail runners and hikers. Please email us with any suggestions at [email protected].

Please note that pets are not allowed on the Trail Rider. 

Please note the Trail Rider cannot accommodate fat tire bikes. Thank you for your cooperation.
