We know Missoula is a great place to live and ride. It is not just the roads and trails that make Missoula a great place to be. There are also great restaurants, micro-breweries, bars and of course excellent bike shops. As for the latter, we like to include ourselves.
Missoula Bicycle Works is located south of the Clark Fork River on Higgins in an area known as "The Hip Strip". This small corner of Missoula is the epicenter of some of our favorite non-bike pastimes. All within two blocks we have great ice cream (bigdippericecream.com), bakeries (lepetiteoutre.com), fresh beer (kettlehouse.com) as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner (tipustiger.com, scottystable.com).
If you do decide to venture out beyond our neighborhood, Missoula has plenty of great restaurants, breweries and bars to choose from. Each of here at the bike shop has our own personal favorites. Whether you are looking for a perfect cup of coffee, great wine list, Missoula's best bartender or top notch Thai food you can always stop by and we can help you find exactly what you are looking for.
