Only 55 so I guess I'm just relatively old! Hope I didn't wait to long to post this up but I just got serious about checking out some trails for this trip. My wife and I are pulling our trailer mostly through Idaho and a few nights in Missoula starting Monday. We live in SoCal and anxiously look forward to getting the heck outta here each summer!
I'll just tell ya where and when I'm staying and ask for any trail info you can offer. If anybody wants to join me for a ride that would be great too! I am in decent shape and though I climb slowly, I'll always get to the top eventually and descend quickly though with due caution. I ride a Trek EX9 and don't mind a little chunk but I'm not into major drops, jumps and DH features where the tires leave the ground! I can take off well but landing is the problem!
Here's where I'll be and what I plan to ride. Much appreciation for any tidbits of info you can send my way!
6/24-27 Boise Area; Bogus Basin (I live in a high desert so I gotta go to the mountains) East Side & Freddies stack loop, Deer Point-Elk Meadows
6/28-30 McCall; Is Brundage worth checking out? They're offering free lift rides on the 28th for a can of food! Loon Lake too.
7/2-3 Cour d 'Alene; Canfield Mountain. What's the easiest climb to the top and best trails down?
7/6-8 Missoula; Up Stuart Peak to the wilderness boundary, down Curry Gulch, Up Spring Gulch, down Wallman. Is the Montana Snowbowl any good and is it really only $10 for an all-day lift ticket?
Any info on these rides, good bike shops, maps and places to eat will be much appreciated! Sorry I didn't give you much time to respond but I'm a procrastinator! PM me this weekend if any of you want to ride with me 'cuz I'm a technological cave man! No smart phone, no laptop, no internet once we leave on Monday! Thanks for your time spent reading this!
