Good point. I did not mean to require facebook for discussion. This thread is for that reason as well. Mostly looking for interested parties to provide feedback with emphasis on constructive criticism on the website and first GRIT1 route for this work in progress. In addition, we need "Be Prepared" article contributions! Ridaho!

Ha. I never noticed that either. Thanks for the note. When I search google maps for jarbidge, the town school is listed as jarbridge. Probably some data entry person like me that imagined a second r. I will search the new site and fix that.

Survival riding. Interesting. I haven't seen that term associated with these kinds of routes yet. To each their own I guess, but I view those routes as just another normal day of riding. Without the aid of a GPS.

Since you live pretty close to the route, i would love it if you rode stage 2 in a day and report back to what it was like. it is a balance of design. I don't want it too hard for the b level trail rider, but hard enough to be a challenge. In general that volume of intermediate trail over a week causes "things" to happen and introduces the survival factor when you ride it without a chase truck. If its too easy for a riders level of skill, i included the special test detours.

Mr Dual Sport, are you familiar with any of the trails on stage 2 or 3 to give me feedback on their flavor? I have difficulty ratings and some local input, but need second opinions from various skill levels.

I'll see what I can do. I don't use a GPS so it may be hard to figure out your exact route in places and to verify I actually rode it.

I like what you're doing with the special test routes included. From the sounds of it, Ridaho will fall somewhere between the Tour and the IBCDR as far as difficulty. A void that needed to be filled for those that like to follow GPS routes.
Tour of Idaho does everything from Facebook now BTW.

I have ridden from Featherville to both Ketchum and McCall on roads and trails a few times, but couldn't say for certain if I was on your route, so I won't try to critique them.

The area itself though, is absolutely beautiful.
