Rides & Events

Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!

Transhandle 2020

The New Transhandle road and e-bike ride series is a ride/month during June, July, and August. The June 21st and July 19th Rides will be training rides that will cover portions of the August 23rd whole enchilada 90+ miles point-to-point Washington to Montana along the Rail-to-Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes and finishing along the NorPac Trail from Mullan to the Montana Border.

The Transhandle Ride Series starts west of Plummer on Fairfield/E. Truax & Idaho Road at the Washington border and rides east to Plummer Idaho connecting to the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes and travels the trail to Mullan Idaho where it takes Willow Cr. Rd to NF 8008 to Stevens Lake Trailhead and then connecting to the Northern Pacific Rail Trail to Lookout Pass where it finishes at the Montana border. Meal stops along the way at Harrison, Enaville, and Wallace.

This series is either point-to-point or out-and-back rides with various dates to ride selected sections and will require self-support in getting home (or you can ride back to where you start each section). Each ride will be approximately 45-50 miles until the last ride which will be the “whole enchilada” 90+ miles point-to-points in late August or early September. Be watching on Facebook for various sections starts and dates.

5 in July at Farragut State Park

5 in July at Farragut State Park 

July 1, 8, 15, 22, 29: Wednesday evening timed, single-track race series at Farragut State Park, in Athol, Idaho, starting at 6:30 p.m. from Tower’s Picnic Area. Different weekly courses, 8-9 miles/lap; riders age 18 and younger are free, and there’s a weekly 2-mile kid’s ride (with parents).

Ride the Passes

Now in its third year, the approximately 60-mile “Epic Gravel Loop” self-supported ride, organized by Trek Bicycle Store in Coeur d’Alene, starts/finishes at the Northern Pacific Railroad Museum in Wallace, Idaho. Course goes over Lookout Pass, then along the Hiawatha Trail to Pearson and over Moon Pass before returning to Wallace. Though this event is free, there is a Hiawatha permit fee of $12 which is paid at Lookout Pass as we ride over.

The first climb up to Lookout Pass will double as the 2nd Transhandle training ride for some riders. This @23mile up and back to Wallace is for those riders who want to investigate the final climb to the finish of the Whole Enchilada Transhandle August 23rd. But hey since your already riding, pay the 12 bucks and join the rest on the Big Hiawatha loop. Moon Pass will be enjoyable.
