Ride Idahois not the same as the Idaho Bike Ride Linda and I have done even though its 2011 route was through the Stanley Basin, the same route we’ve done twice with IBR.
August 5 – 11, 2012
Ride Idaho is a local, in state, group and their ride for 2012 starts in New Meadows and goes North to Moscow. Get someone to drive you to New Meadows and you could just bike home from Moscow.
So much of this is familiar to TRC riders. On day 6 they’ll be headed to Genessee from Winchester That should be a Friday. Some of us should turn out to ride up the Grade with ’em.
I note they are riding into Elk City for an overnight. We have a club ride into Elk City and back the same day. I haven’t done the ride into Elk City and should Kenyon and I get win in the Cascade lottery, we’ll be somewhere in Oregon on our club ride to Elk City.
