2 - Basic Skills


Slightly more challenging than a level 1 ride. A rider with minimal experience will still feel comfortable riding a larger bike (such as a V-Strom 650) on a level 2 ride. Level 2 routes include primarily gravel roads with tighter corners and steeper grades. You may encounter some very easy double track. You should be comfortable with steady speeds on straight gravel, averaging 40 m.p.h. when appropriate.

Ride Description:

The Owyhee Challenge Ride starts at the Chevron station on the intersection of Hwy 95 and Hwy 55 just west of Marsing.  Anyone wishing to trailer their bikes to this station would have plenty of room to unload their motorcycle and leave a vehicle here.  It's kickstands up at 9:30 so give yourself enough time to fuel up, etc. before leaving.  The next opportunity for gas will be once we return to Jordan Valley, OR.

Ride Description:

This ride is a club favorite.  IdahoSam started the tradition of going out to Prairie for an early season ride more than 10 years ago.

This ride is a good chance to get the bike out and shake it down if you haven't already.  It will be an easy pace with frequent stops to socialize with the group.

Lunch will be available at the Y-Stop.

If you want to have breakfast before the ride, plan on being there by 8:00.  We will depart at 9:00AM.

 Trent Holderness and I are going on an over-nighter to tag a few Challenge Sites at Rocky Bar, the Aircraft Beacon and Crater Rings.  Meet up at 3:00pm, Friday, June 15th at Central District Health near Emerald and 5 Mile.  Kickstands up at 3:15pm.  We will camp out around Atlanta, visit the hot springs, then head up and over to Rocky Bar Saturday morning.  We plan on cooking dinner and breakfast at camp, but could be persuaded to eat a cheeseburger at Beaver Lodge if we get to Atlanta early enough.

Description:

Two of the 2018 IAMC Challenge Sites are difficult to get to because there are very poorly marked two-track roads to get to them in the Idaho Benchmark Map book, and no roads indicated in Garmin BaseCamp mapping software.  For this reason, I am including my tracks in a GPX file to these two sites.  These tracks begin at the Simco Road exit off of I-84 (Exit-74).  Take Desert Wind to Ditto Creek then east on Desert Duck to its end continuing past the turn-aroud and follow the rutted two-track to the Aircraft Beacon-26 GPS coordinates.  You will not see this site until you

Notice! this ride has been changed due to the predicted cold front arriving Saturday night June 8th with snow levels as low as 6000' elevation...  so we are changing the ride to miss the expected bad weather.
