Lift from Helena to Missoula?
« on: August 29, 2022, 09:19:22 pm »
A friend & I are finishing a 1,000 mile bike ride that finishes in Helena on Sept 3, which leads to a question. Could anyone from Helena give us a lift to Missoula on Sept 3? We need to bring our bikes & gear as well. We'll pay for gas. We may also be slow to reply since we're headed into remote mountains, in Montana, but we should have wifi about every other day.

Welcome to the ACA Forums!  While I can't help you, if you don't get any takers AND can wait until after Labor Day weekend, you might consider renting a pickup for about $380 one-way.  Best of luck in catching a ride!  Tailwinds, John

Or make it a 1130-mile ride and you can finish in Missoula. Or take the bus via Butte.

I think you'd have to be extraordinarily lucky to find someone willing to do that for gas money. But hey, no harm in checking! But begin working on your backup plans.

Thanks for the replies!

There's a Griz football game on Saturday in Missoula. Anyone know a football fan whose driving to the game, from Helena?

Thanks again,

Steven
