Bike and Walk Promotion

The Bicycle/Pedestrian Office and Missoula In Motion host events throughout the year encouraging people to bike and walk more frequently. Whether commuting to work or school, running errands, or just going to a friend's house, we want you to think about biking or walking before you grab the car keys.
Winter Bike to Work Day
Bike riding is not just for the summer. In fact, a good ride is a great way to warm up. Come join us for breakfast along the riverfront trail, Friday, February 12. It has been said that there is no such thing as bad weather, you just need to be prepared. Gloves are the one item we can't ride without.

Bike Month: May in Motion

First Friday Parklets and National PARK(ing) Day
Once a month in the summer and again in September, we transform a handful of on-street parking spaces downtown into small parks, often featuring landscaping, art, and places to sit and mingle. These parklets create places for people, provide a respite from walking, and invite the public to reconsider how we use our shared spaces. Join in the fun on first Friday downtown from

BIKEapalooza at Sunday Streets Missoula
Sunday Streets Missoula closes the street to cars and opens it to people, inviting folks to bike and walk in the relative safety of a car-free zone. Bikeapalooza is a longer community bike ride that begins and ends at Sunday Streets, showcasing new trails and infrastructure, as well as good bike routes that may be off-the-beaten-path for people who are new to biking. Want to start biking more but don't quite feel comfortable riding in an urban environment? Come ride with us at Bikeapalooza and let us show you the ropes.   
Bike Walk Bus Week
For 24 years the Bicycle/Pedestrian Office has organized this week-long, community-wide celebration, encouraging all Missoulians to travel sustainably by bicyle, bus, and on foot.

For one week in September, we focus all of our attention on getting around Missoula in the most healthy and fun ways possible...with support from over 50 local businesses and organizations that offer free activities and giveaways.

Grad your family, friends, and co-workers - and enjoy the journey!
