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:

This is an exploratory ride via road 311 which starts at Grimes Creek and goes to Idaho City to see if the road is open all the way.  My map shows the road is not continuous, so we will have to see if we can make it.  From Idaho City we'll continue on to Elk creek and maybe check out a mine site or two.  After this short loop we can stop for lunch at Trudy's resturant then head back to Boise.  I'm using this ride to scout out a potential night ride and overnight camp in this area next weekend so anyone going tomorrow will have a say in planning picking the route.  H

Ride Description:

 This Weekday Afterwork ride will be a tour of the foothills behind Boise. We will meet at Hawkin's Pac Out at the bottom of Bogus Basin rd., and depart at 6:00. The plan is to head up to Bogus and hit the ridge road. Route is flexible depending on riders and time, but should be no more than 50 miles and a couple of hours. It will be a good opportunity for newer riders and those who are thinking of joining the club to get accquainted. If anyone wants a bit more of a challenge we can hit Eagleson (275E) and drop down the backside into Robie Creek.

Ride Description:

 Weekday Afterwork Rides are back! These are intended to be meet and greet, all inclusive rides to get out and chase off the workweek blues. We'll start at Guerber park, since I need that Challenge point. We will head out North on Eagle Rd, turning into Willow Creek rd. Then take Sand Hollow to Johnson Creek road and down to Shalerock Rd, and follow it east to Horseshoe Bend. We will ride the old Hwy up to the top of the hill, where we will catch Pearl rd and head in to Pearl. This is a good bailout point for anyone wanting to head back into Boise via 55.

Ride Description:

This should be a pretty casual, easy ride. Level 2, though I can't guarantee there's no level 3. We'll leave Beacon Light Chevron at 9:00AM and head up 55 to Banks. Left turn up the hill to Pinehurst Church. Then north on dirt to the High Valley Guard Station. We'll head a bit more north and cross 55 at Smiths Ferry and go over to Boiling Springs. Then drop down to Silver Creek Plunge. 4 Challenge sites just like that. Then down to Crouch. If we're there in time for a late lunch we can do that, but bring something along just in case.
