The IAMC Challenge


 

 

2018 Marks the ninth year of the IAMC Challenge, and we invite you to get out there this year to see some new sights, visit some old favorite spots, push your limits a little and (most of all) get to better know the great state of Idaho.  Several of this year’s sites are in neighboring states; one in Washington, six in Oregon, four in Montana, and two in Wyoming.

For last year the theme was water — specifically hot springs, falls, lakes reservoirs and ponds (dams included) that covered the state from north to south and from east to west.   



The theme for 2018 is mostly historic — ghost towns, native American history, historic fire lookouts, memorials, two of Idaho’s eleven National Natural Landmarks and a variety of other locations.  The 45 sites for 2018 include some favorites from years past, several new ones and two new categories (a photo of you fixing a flat or changing a tire and a photo of your bike in mud).  A PDF file listing the 2018 Challenge Sites, as well as a GPX file listing the Challenge Sites as waypoints for your GPS is available in the Route Library

Many thanks to Arden Hill for selecting this year’s Challenge Sites, and to Chuck Scheer for our bandanas and Challenge logo stickers for this and the past several years.



You do not have to visit all the sites to complete the 2018 Challenge.  Visit as many as your time and riding ability allow.  There will be 4 levels of recognized completion for Challenge participants:

 

 

 

Bronze Tire Winners will document visits to any 10-19 of the sites.  They will receive a special edition “Bronze Tire” sticker and they will also be entered in a drawing to win a bronze-level prize at the conclusion of the challenge.

Silver Tire Winners will document visits to any 20-29 of the sites.  They will receive a special edition “Silver Tire” sticker and they will also be entered in a drawing to win a silver-level prize at the conclusion of the challenge.


Gold Tire Winners will document visits to any 30-39 of the sites. They will receive a special edition “Gold Tire” sticker and they will also be entered in a drawing to win a gold-level prize at the conclusion of the challenge.

Platinum Tire Winners will document visits at least 40-45 sites.  They will receive a very exclusive “Platinum Tire” sticker and they will be entered in a drawing to win a platinum-level prize at the conclusion of the challenge.

 

Of course adventure itself is the main reward, but other rewards await our challengers as well. Your entry fee of $20.00 entitles you to a bandana as well as an entry for drawing of prizes at the annual club meeting.
