This is the 11th running of the 3 Rivers Century sponsored by the Gallatin Valley Bicycle Club. Proceeds from this ride benefit the Bike Kitchen, a local non-profit that promotes bike advocacy and provides bikes to those in need. The ride will start in a new location this year at the Gallatin County Regional Park located in Bozeman, Montanta at the pavilion adjacent to 1705 Vaguero Parkway (fire station). Ride options include a 33 mile Churchill Cruiser, 44 mile Churchill Gravel Grinder (new this year), a 66 mile River Rambler and the classic 100 mile 3 Rivers Century that crosses over the Gallatin, Jefferson and Madison Rivers. The ride will begin with coffee and breakfast treats. Lunch will be served at two new locations this year: at Churchill for the 33 mile Cruiser and 44 mile Gravel Grinder and at the Three Forks Ponds Park located in Three Forks, Montana for the 66 and 100 mile river rides.

Event details and schedule

The 2015 GVBC 3 Rivers Century event will start and end in the park pavillion adjacent to the fire station located at 1705 Vaquero Parkway in Bozeman, Montana. Ride information, course maps and late registration will be available starting at 6:00 am with the 66 and 100 mile rides starting at 7:00 am and the 33 and 44 mile rides starting at 8:00 am. A pre-ride continental breakfast will be served between 6:30 and 8:00 am. Parking is available on the east end of Vaquero Parkway across Davis Lane. The ride will be provided with sag support by the Bike Kitchen, but be prepared for your own bike repairs with tools and spare parts including extra bike tire tubes, pump and patch kit. Helmets are required since you will be riding on active streets and highways. August Weather in Montana runs the gamut from hot and dry to cold, wet and even snowy, be prepared. Rest stops will be frequent and provide food and drinks geared to cyclists and restrooms. Lunch will be provided by a local deli and include a vegetarian option. The ride will end where it started in Bozeman with ice cream scoops being served. Make sure you are in proper shape for the ride you select. The century ride has some long, steep hills with fast downhill runs. The 44 mile gravel ride will be a mix of gravel, pavement and if wet some areas that could be soft and slippery. The 33 and 66 mile rides are valley ramblers with no major climbs or descents. A custom cycling cap will be provided to the first 150 participating riders.
