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:

Wickahoney is a ghost town in Owyhee County, located in a remote southern part of the county.  It once had its own post office, which doubled as a stagecoach stop on the route from Mountain Home, Idaho to Mountain City, Nevada.  The now-abandoned Wickahoney Post Office and Stage Station was in service from 1895 to 1911.  It was built of local lava rock by Dow Dunnington, who homesteaded the property and served as the postmaster.  The year of construction

Succor Creek / Leslie Gulch March 2015

Kumakahn put together a ride for us all to join in on the other weekend.  Thank you.   I know it can be difficult to motivate yourself into preparing for a ride when the morning temps are less than comfortable.  Luckily the breakfast break helped me warm up physically as well as mentally after ingesting the mini personal pot of coffee our server left each of us.  The meet n greet went well, I think all food orders were correct and we all seemed
