Ride Idaho 2013, coming soon


Ride Idaho should be celebrating their 10th anniversary this year. Route and schedule will be announced on January 16, 2013.

Promises to be interesting.

Full dislcosure: This will be my ninth tour with this organization. I used to be involved with the planning and execution but now I just pay my money, get my recumbent and gear to the starting line and enjoy the ride. See my review of last year's event in this forum.

Limited to 300-350 riders, Ride Idaho is a week-long supported tour running 350-500 miles through Idaho's river vallerys, mountains, deserts, prairies, farms, ranches, and small towns. Amenities include professional mechanical and enthusiastic sag support, local food, a hot shower truck and entertainment at each camping site. If you have the money, a tent/porter service is available.

The route has been announced and registration is now open. We're doing northern Idaho again. Incredible scenery along lakes and rivers, many miles on the rail-to-trail system, mining towns, layover day with an option to rent a mountain bike and do the Trail of the Hiawatha.

There were 350 seats when the ride was announced in January. The region's bike touring options are very popular and when ride Idaho chooses these routes they sell out quickly. There are less than 100 sseats available as I write this in the middle of February. If you're thinking about coming to the northern Idaho panhandle, you should decide soon.

If you're on the ride, please look for me. I'm the guy on the Tour Easy recumbent running a blue bodyskin and flags. 

You can get on the waiting list, though.
