2023 Mission Mountain Area Pedal to Plate
Race Details:


Join us September 23, 2023 for a scenic bike tour at the base of the Mission Mountains on the rolling pastoral roads of the Mission Valley. This year we'll be riding a gorgeous route near Ronan, MT. Along the way, riders will stop and visit four to six local, sustainable farms with local food bites offered at each stop. This year for the first time ever, we're offering riders two route options: a 50-mile route for those wishing to complete a half century, and a route that is slightly less than 40 miles for those interested in shortening the ride. Both routes are on fully paved rural roads, with the exception of short stretches of gravel (up to a quarter mile) which provide access to our rural farms. Please be prepared with a bike that is ready for our rural roads which sometimes include uneven pavement and potholes and these short stretches of gravel. More details below.

Save $10 and help us plan for the ride. We are offering an early-bird rate until July 1st, of $75/person. Registrations after July 1st will be $85/each. There is a processing fee as well (6.5% + $1.25). The registration fee includes your ride, local food from Mission Valley farms and producers, music, and a commemorative item to keep. The day starts and ends in the heart of the quaint, agricultural community of Ronan. We’ll serve coffee before embarking at 9am, but please eat breakfast prior to arrival so you're ready for a full day of riding. We'll tour farms along the route and light bites of local food will be served at each stop along the ride. We'll end the day back in Ronan for a delicious farm-to-table dinner prepared with local ingredients and beer from Ronan Cooperative Brewery. There will also be local music from the Western Montana Musicians Cooperative and an artisan's farmers market at the end of the bike ride. This is a low-waste event, and we encourage riders to bring back their cups and mugs from previous years to use at the dinner. We look forward to seeing you in September #MMAPP2023 #bikethemmapp

The route starts and ends at Ronan Cooperative Brewery on Main Street in Ronan. You can find our route map on Trailforks which is linked on our registration page (www.bikereg.com/mmapp). These routes are subject to slight changes or modifications as Ronan is in the midst of a major highway construction project throughout summer 2023. Follow us on Facebook for the most up to date information.

In order to make our festivities more accessible to the friends and families of our riders and for our community, we're offering a ticket to join us for just the locally sourced dinner. Tickets, which cost $30, can be purchased BikeReg.

Not a cyclist, but still want to be part of the fun? Join our incredible group of dedicated volunteers who make MMAPP happen. As a thank you for helping, our local farm-to-table dinner is free for all volunteers. If you're interested contact [email protected]. Space is limited
