Idaho Falls Century – heART of Idaho

This is all in it’s planning infancy but it seem that Idaho Falls is going to get its own century.  The tentative details are as follows:

  • We will offer 25, 50, 62, 75, and 100 mile options.
  • Pricing is $21 for the shorter rides, and $31 for the metric century and greater distances.
  • Prices will include tee shirt, goodie bag, a window sticker, etc.
  • There will be a ride organized around the greenbelt for kids.
  • All options will be flat to rolling.
  • Aid stations, sag, mechanical support on the course.
  • There will be a post-ride barbeque.
  • There will be a post-ride drawing (based on entry number) and a door prize giveaway.
  • Attendance at the event will also include access to the Art Museum and the “Cycles of Sam” antique bicycle exhibit.  Idaho artists will produce bicycle-related art for the show, to exhibit and/or for sale.
  • It will be on the 22nd of August.
  • We will have the registration website and course description up on a website soon.
  • On site registration and post-ride whoopla will occur in the park south of the Art Museum on the greenbelt.

The proceeds are going to the Art Museum of Eastern Idaho

I saw the map of the proposed route(s).  There is a 25 mile loop that runs south of town that stays fairly close of the Snake river most of the time  – which ties into a 50 mile loop that is on the northwest side of town that incoporate “the rollers” out by Osgood as well as the Shattuck Butte area – this ties to another 25 mile loop that rolls around Roberts and Lewisville before heading back to town.

More info and links to sites will come as soon as I have them.

Seattle to Portland ’09

There has been discussion amongst some locals about doing STP this year.  Registration opens Jan. 1 for Cascade Bicycle Club members and on Feb. 1 for everybody else.  Sorry for dropping the ball but the CBC site suggest becoming a member by Dec. 19 to have your member # by Jan. 1.  Oh well, they’ve increased the rider limit to 10,000 for ’09 so we should be ok.

So far interested parties are myself, Greg B, Anna and Rod and maybe Jim S.  Anybody else up for a quick 200 miler at sea level with 500 feet of climbing?
