Welcome to Team Muleterro

We are MULES. Montana's Ultimate Leaders of Endurance Sports.

Team Muleterro is a bike team in Bozeman, Montana. We love to bike! You'll see us at all sorts of races, especially Mountain Bike, Cyclocross, BMX, Triathlons and even some Road races. We're the loud, fast, high kicking group that is having more fun than everyone else. After all... that's why we do it - it's FUN!

Even more photos from the Race!

We've just added even more photos from the race to our Flickr account... and these photos are much better quality!  I'm sure it is just the camera that made these so much nicer (Ha ha!!  It's obvious it the photographer!!)

Feel free to go to our MuleX - 2017 Album to see all photos.  Or if you just want to see the new photos from Alizabeth Bronsdon, you can just view the photos tagged with Alibeemt.  By the way, if you like one of the new photos and would like one that doesn't have a watermark, you just need to email Alizabeth.  

A huge thanks to Ali for taking (and sharing) these pictures!!

Thanks You Crazy Bike People!

When Team Muleterro and Team GAS get together, it is a fun time no matter what the weather does!  Thanks to everyone who came out to our super-snowy cyclocross bike race this year!  It is crazy to see the difference in weather between 2016 and 2017 (just check out our photos on flickr).  While it might have been snowy (and then muddy by the end), we had such a great time.  No matter if you raced, helped organize the race or just spectated - THANK YOU for joining us!  We hope you had as much fun as we did.  What can we say... crazy is contagious!  Cheers!

Mule X 2017 turned out to be beautiful!
We hear it a lot: "A group of drinkers with a biking problem"
What a great group of crazy people who love bikes!

Mule/Gas Cross is ON

Sure, it is snowy... but that doesn't stop crazy bikers from having fun!!  The race for tomorrow is still on!  The course is set up and we'll be there (you'll see us over by the fire, drinking warm coffee from Ghost Town)!

York 38 Special

The York 38 Special is my favorite ride of the year.  It's laid back, great scenery, awesome volunteer crew, delicious cookies, and ends at York Bar with a burger & beer!  I haven't missed a year yet, and hope that I never do.

This year I got to ride the 38 mile loop with a pack of mules and some mule-friends!  I wasn't quite sure what the competitive, snarling mules would think of such a relaxed ride?  Turns out that I'm not the only mule that likes cookies!  And a bonus, if you feed a mule enough cookies, it is easier to keep up with them!!

August 21st - Leverich

THIS WEEK'S PLAN:

DATE:  August 21st, 2013
TIME:  6:00pm
TRAIL:  Leverich Canyon
Leverich is probably the most popular bike trail in town. It is a grueling uphill that loops around to a downhill that is full of swooping-banked-corners. While the uphill is steep, it is also relatively short (the whole loop is only about 5 miles). Besides, if those DHers (Down Hill Bikers) in the group can haul their heavy bikes up the hill, you can make it! Check out the GPS from last year.  

August 14th - History Rock

THIS WEEK'S PLAN:

DATE:  August 14th, 2013
TIME:  6:00pm
TRAIL:  History Rock
History Rock is a Bozeman classic ride.  There is a pretty good description of the trail on the Wilderness & Recreation Partnership Website.

August 7th - Bear Canyon

THIS WEEK'S PLAN:

DATE:  August 7th, 2013
TIME:  6:00pm
TRAIL:  Bear Canyon
Bear Canyon is fun for all level of bikers.  The trail is about as wide as an ATV, so in many areas we can even ride two wide... which is great for conversations.  While it is mostly uphill on the way in, it is a fairly gradual uphill in comparison to many of the other trails in the area.  I don't have a good GPS to show of this trail, but it is about 6.5 miles in to the lake (so 13 miles roundtrip), if you make it the entire way.  Since it is an "out and back" - you can pick how far you want to ride. Given the amount of bugs out the last few weeks, you may want to consider bug spray this week. Oh, and the ride back out... ALL SMILES!!  

July 31st - Bracket Creek to Grassy

THIS WEEK'S PLAN:

DATE:  July 31th, 2013
TIME:  6:00pm
TRAIL:  Grassy Mountain (Bracket Creek to Grassy and back)
We are going back to Bracket Creek again!  This is an out-and-back, so you'll be able to pick your own pace and then turn back whenever you want.  Here's the GPS from a few weeks ago.

Caution for Sexy Mules

The rumors are true... sexy mules are being spotted throughout Gallatin County.  This is of course due to the fact that Team Muleterro has received their latest Jersey Kits.  It just so happened one was spotted at the Top of South Cottonwood:

Just wait until you see the Lady Mules in their new kits... they will be sure to cause "distracted bike accidents!!" 

July 24th - Emerald Lake

THIS WEEK'S PLAN:

DATE:  July 24th, 2013
TIME:  6:00pm
TRAIL:  Emerald Lake
Emerald Lake is a great trail for everyone.  Round Trip it will be about 8.8 miles, but since it is an "out-and-back" you get to choose how far you want to ride and turn around early.  I'm sure it has some steep sections that I forget about, but compared to some of the recent trails we've done, Emerald Lake is also good for everyone since it isn't so steep. Check out the GPS from last year.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to join this week - but Erica and her posse will be going and would love your company!

July 17th - Sypes Canyon

THIS WEEK'S PLAN:

DATE:  July 17th, 2013
TIME:  6:00pm
TRAIL:  Sypes Canyon
Sypes Canyon is another steep trail, but probably a little less steep than the last two (Shafthouse and Truman).  We'll take our time on the way in (which will be all uphill), but then we will be rewarded with some great views and a fun, quick ride back out. Check out the GPS from last year (ignore the road section).

LAST WEEK RECAP:

Rapelje- Mulie's Perspective

I'm excited to write up a little race report. As the sleep deprivation wore off and I had a chance to stew over my solo win at a 24 hour bike race I got to thinking about the whole experience and also how lucky I am to have amazing people in my life and the opportunity for such great experiences.  

I didn't go into the race expecting or trying to win, although I do admit to pouring over the entries on Friday afternoon, evaluating the competition. I guess I am a little competitive. I was really just there because it is a Muleterro event and I like the camaraderie and also to get in lots and lots of hours of riding.

Check out all these Mules at the start!
