Level 3 rides will include rutted double track, and uneven roads. These may be rocky and difficult at times. A 1200GS or similar bike will feel heavy in this terrain, and will require an experienced rider. A moderate rider on a 650cc bike will be able to maintain 20 to 30 m.p.h. without a load. Little or no single track will be present on a level 3 ride. You may encounter moderate water crossings (less than knee high). Expect higher average speeds on easy sections of the route.

Ride Description:

Please note that I've changed the departure time a couple of times.  I've settled on the early departure 6:00AM.  That gets us over to the east side of the state with lots of daylight left.

A few years ago, club member IdahoSam organized and led a tour of Montana Ghost Towns.  I plan to retrace that route.

Departure will be from the Boise Stage Stopon I-84 east of town.  We will be leaving at 6:00AM.  If you want to get breakfast, be there about 5:00AM

Ride Description:

 We get an extra day this year, what better way to spend it than in the saddle? Let's meet at the Shell station at the corner of Eagle rd and W State Street at 10:00. We can head out Eagle road, to Willow Creek rd, to Sand Hollow rd. From there we will take Johnson Creek rd to Shalerock and head into Horseshoe Bend. Then the old hwy to Pearl rd and back in on Willow creek. Or we can take Chapparal over to Hwy 16 and end up at Firebird Raceway. Johnson creek can be a handful, muddy, rocky, rutted, but only 5 miles or so long.

Ride Description:

I started out the year with low expectations of collecting very many Challenge points due to my ankle surgery, but I've been at it and now I am one challenge point away from Gold :) Since its so close, I figured I could hit Mayfield any time, and so I haven't yet. Its an easy Challenge point and I think I should get it before it actually turns into winter.  I want to get the South Fork Picture Op while I'm at it, but I don't intend on making a whole day of it.
