Ride Idaho 2019 will celebrate 15 years of showcasing the beautiful state of Idaho, and it only seemed fitting that we bring the ride back to the state capital, Boise, where is all began. Boise, known as the City of Trees, boasts a unique identity of a place where people can work, play, relax, explore, and enjoy, while also taking in the scenery of the foothills, rivers, lakes, and mountains.

The week-long ride will begin on Saturday, July 13th, at Discovery Park, which is a short distance from Boise and where we will have our registration packet pick-up. The following morning, on our first day of riding, we will head northeast through the historical mining town of Idaho City, following the “Ponderosa Scenic Byway Route” to our first overnight location in Lowman.

On day 2, you will ride along the Payette River on the “Wildlife Canyon Scenic Byway” with opportunities to soak in several hot springs. Lunch this day will be served at Terrace Lakes Resort and includes the use of the geothermal pool to swim and relax by. That night you will enjoy dinner in Garden Valley with the live theatrical, outdoor performance of “Newsies” at the Starlight Mountain Theatre.

For day three, pack your suit and sandals because after a short bike ride, you will be treated to an exciting raft trip down the Payette River on a section that is frequented by locals and visiting tourists alike. The last part of the day’s adventure will be followed by an easy 25 mile bike ride along the Payette River into Emmett.

Day four will take you on the “Snake River Canyon Scenic Byway” where many will have their first opportunity to see the splendor of hops being grown, for Idaho is the second largest producer in the United States. Camping this night will be at a city park on the majestic Snake River.

On day five, you will ride through lush orchards and vineyards as we make a few stops to visit some of the local wineries and tasting rooms. Then, you will encircle Lake Lowell and the Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge and follow the Snake River down to our overnight location in Marsing, once again camping at another beautiful city park on the Snake River.

On day six, we will visit Givens Hot Springs and then have lunch at Celebration Park. The final stretch on this day’s ride will drop you into the majestic Snake River Canyon and Swan Falls Dam, where we will be camping at a beautiful recreation area.

On the last day, be sure to take pictures after you climb out of the canyon for your last view of the magnificent Snake River. Make sure to watch for the many species of birds of prey as you ride back to Boise and celebrate the week with all your new friends

Ride Around Washington (RAW) 2019 – The lyrics, “From the mountains, to the prairies, …” could have been written about RAW 2019, which will feature mountain climbs with stunning vistas, river gorges, and wonderfully quiet roads through hop fields and vineyards. You don’t have to choose between beer and wine, this tour will offer both! Starting along the Columbia River in Stevenson, we’ll head north to Trout Lake, ride to the base of Mt. Adams, and onwards to Goldendale, Sunnyside and then a final day touring Yakima wine country. For those who don’t like to pack up each morning, we’ll have only four venues over the course of six nights. RAW 2019 will also offer a rest day in Goldendale with optional long and short loop rides for those who prefer to maximize their time in the saddle.

Whether you are a newcomer to RAW or a returning rider, the Velos, Vistas & Vines tour offers a fantastic and unique cycling adventure. The vibe on RAW is relaxed, friendly, and social. It has the feel of summer camp for grownups, while allowing you to enjoy a premier cycle touring experience. Each year we welcome back returning riders along with new guests seeking their next cycling adventure.

RAW is a fully supported bicycle tour with overnight camping accommodations. The tour includes three meals per day; hot showers; daily ride support (snacks, water, and mechanic services); daily luggage transport to and from each overnight camp; and (for a fee) gear and bike transportation to our start in Stevenson and from our finish in Yakima. Along with professional staff, the tour experience is designed and supported by Cascade Bicycle Club volunteers, fellow cyclists dedicated to sharing a love of cycling in Washington state with our guests. Please join us in 2019!

The southern slopes of Mt. Adams in June are a bicyclist’s paradise with good roads, exceptional weather, cool temps, easy to challenging rides and unequaled vistas against the glorious snow clad backdrop of magnificent Mt Adams. The Mt. Adams Country Bicycle Tour is the perfect way to enjoy and explore this spectacular sun-drenched area and awesome views with your fellow riders in the fresh mountain air—and raise needed funds for non-profit community projects.

The 17th Annual Mt. Adams Country Bicycle Tour (MACBT) will be another glorious opportunity to ride the beautiful Mt Adams Country with well marked routes, rest stops, safe sag support, and of course wonderful weather. You can choose from the 11.5 mile Family Fun Ride (Trout Lake Valley), the 51 Mile Loop through Trout Lake, BZ Corner, Glenwood, and back, the 54 Mile Forest Loop (up and down the flanks of Mt Adams) and the combined 105 Mile Infinity Ride (51 + 57 ** revised mile loops). Each well-marked ride takes you on quiet country roads through some of the most beautiful countryside around

** Because of major damage in 2016 on USDA forest roads 23, 90 & 88, the Forest Route is completely impassable by bicycle. As of June 2019, a loop route is not possible due to two large washouts on FS 88. Prior to winter of 2018-2019 it was possible to dismount and walk a bicycle. We are recommending riders ride the forest route as two out-and-backs.
