Ride Description:

 

Ride to see the solar eclipse and have a picnic at Crane Creek Reservoir.  Bring your own dark solar eclipse glasses available on amazon. Order early as they might be in high demand.  You might want to bring a mat and blanket also.  There will be lots of people around main roads so don't plan on eating at any restaurant.  We will be using back routes to avoid the crowds.  Can pick up fuel in Emmett or Horseshoe Bend on way back so would need about 140 miles.  Fuel might be available in Sweet but expect long lines.  We are expecting 2 million visitors in Idaho during this event.

 If skies look like they will be overcast, I will cancel event with two days notice and travel to a better area to see the eclipse.  

This is a 99-year event in Idaho.

Ride to see the solar eclipse and have a picnic at Crane Creek Reservoir.  Bring your own dark solar eclipse glasses available on amazon. Order early as they might be in high demand.  You might want to bring a mat and blanket also.  There will be lots of people around main roads so don't plan on eating at any restaurant.  We will be using back routes to avoid the crowds.  Can pick up fuel in Emmett or Horseshoe Bend on way back so would need about 140 miles.  Fuel might be available in Sweet but expect long lines.  We are expecting 2 million visitors in Idaho during this event.

 If skies look like they will be overcast, I will cancel event with two days notice and travel to a better area to see the eclipse.  

This is a 99-year event in Idaho.
