How It All Started...
My name is Cricket Butler and I started permanently calling the Whitefish area home in the summer of 2012 with my 2 sons. I fell in love with this area 11 years prior to moving here and for more summers than I can count, I have passed through on my bike in one way or another. I knew in those early years this was the place for me and now would be the best place for me to raise my sons.
Being an enthusiastic cyclist, I had this vision to create a place where cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds could come together and enjoy the best Montana has to offer and have access to the information and support they needed to get the most out of their visit here. This dream resulted in the opening of the Whitefish Bike Retreat in 2013 and sharing my love for Montana to all that visit here! Come fall in love with Montana!
