    Teton Valley, ID Riding Partner/Group

    Guys, I'm heading to Victor, ID on Tuesday for a month and wanted to see if anyone wanted to ride. Was out there last summer, but not knowing anyone I always rode alone. We rent a house a block from Fitzgerald's and I'm always down to hit the Pass/Big Holes/Targhee/wherever. Thanks!

    There is a Tuesday night Dude's ride that goes different places every week, but you might need a secret handshake. Ask at Fitzy's!

    Thanks Rideit! We'll be on E Birch. After Aaron G ran into that bruin on Pole Canyon yesterday, would like to not always ride alone.

    No doubt. I do that ride solo fairly often...

    Word is that the XC trails @ Targhee are good to go. Horshoe, Grove, Drake, Aspen, Mahogany, etc. all good.

    I rode Arrow/Snotel/Phillips Bench off the Pass yesterday, and other than a few snow patches on the lower end of Arrow, it was great.

    You're timing it well!

    Smithhammer, today at Fitzgerald's they said there have been a ton of bears at Targhee. I ride with spray and a 357 but I take my seven year old with me most of the time.

    Also, went up to Grove today and people said there have been a lot of encounters. Thoughts?

    Will -

    There is always the possibility of encountering a bear when riding around here. Make plenty of noise when you ride to avoid surprise encounters, and be 'bear aware' esp. in limited visibility situations.

    When riding alone, I find my bad singing is a pretty effective bear deterrent.
