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:

 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

Ride Description:

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. 

This ride will go to the Wallowa Rally via  Kleinschmidt grade, Hess grade, Hells Canyon Scenic Byway, Joseph Oregon and the Rally, day two we'll ride to the Lolo Motorway, and back to Boise via US 84 and Idaho 55..

Ride Description:

This will be the easy way into Silver City, taking the Hwy to Murphy then good improved gravel to Silver city.  This is one of the challenge sites so bring your bandanna and get your picture.  I will be planning a hard way to Silver city as soon as the snow level is high enough and will include  the town of flint also.
