    This is the fifth year of having this event, and it's better ever year. This part of Idaho has probably the greatest concentration of twisty, remote, paved goodness with dozens of "grades" where a short section (5-10 miles) of road will climb a very steep grade with a series of tight switch backs, unlike few places I have seen.. with names like Spiral Highway, Winchester Grade, Greer Grade etc. along with that, there are miles of great roads that follow along twisty rivers (Idaho has the most rivers of any state in the lower 48 states), such as highway 12/lolo pass and highway 14.

    There is also spectacular dual sporting, single track, and tons, and I mean tons of ATV trails.. Idaho is very off road friendly with many towns allowing them to ride right down in to town to have dinner or pick up groceries etc.

    Our format is simple, and our schedule uncomplicated.. we start each day with a short devotional/prayer time, then we divide up in to groups.. usually a longer, all day pavement ride for the zoomers, and then a dirty ride for the dirty types. We have plenty of route suggestions, detailed maps, and GPX tracks for riders of any type, two or four wheel.

    Evenings we gather in the club house, and talk about the day, sharing adventures, and usually watch a motorcycle movie or share photos from the day.. Sunday morning is worship and service time, then we say our goodbyes and off to our travels to home. We usually get people from as far away as California, and usually a group from Arkansas.

    The event is free for non CMA'rs but your lodging and food is on you..

    Here's a short video clip from past years..

    heh.. thanks Ladybug.. yeah, I shouldn't assume everyone knows of us.. but we have about 80,000 members in the USA, and several thousand internationally.. good group.. they do lots of service activities, prison ministries, hospital visitations, donate bikes to pastors in impoverished areas etc.

    I'd heard of them for years, but never appealed before because I grew up riding dirt bikes, sport bikes, adventure touring etc.. but now they have a Fast Lane division, and they still do lots of great service work, but now they have folks that like to ride places I like to ride too, on dirt, on the track etc.

    thanks for asking
