Bicycle Idaho, 2005


We enjoyed last year's Bicycle Idaho 2004 route, a loop in Southeast Idaho, Western Wyoming, and Northeast Utah. This year's route was a loop in Northeast Idaho just entering and leaving Montana, with one day's ride overlapping the Bicycle Idaho 2002 tour, but in reverse direction. Starting this year the Bicycle Idaho rides were shortened by one day from previous years and became typically less strenuous most days as well. As always, the tour was organized by Bicycle Rides Northwest, a company based in Bend, Oregon.
