Blazing Saddles Event Information
Bike the Bridgers for Kids with Cancer
July 17, 2021
Blazing Saddles offers great opportunities for the advanced, intermediate and beginning cyclist to train with passion for an important and meaningful cause.
There are five different mileage options that all end in Livingston, including a 100-mile century, 80 miles (from Livingston to Livingston over Bozeman and Battleridge Passes), 65 miles (starting at the top of Bozeman Pass), 45 miles or 30 miles. We encourage families to join the ride for the last 30 miles. Fabulous prizes will be given to the top fundraisers. All fundraising must be collected and turned in by July 5 to be eligible for prizes.
Friends and Family are invited to cheer you on and to join us for a picnic at Sacajawea Park in Livingston following the ride.
Thank you to all who participated in the 2019 Blazing Saddles event! (Due to Covid-19, we were not able to host Blazing Saddles in 2020. )
We had 35 riders (and 1 runner in Austin, TX), 42 Sponsors, and 42 Volunteers.
We raised $19,627 plus over $7,000 in sponsorships.
Thanks to all involved!
