The 11th annual Weiser River Trail Ride will be held on Saturday, June 3, 2017. Riders will have 2 distance options to cycle the northern-most section of the Weiser River Trail, "Idaho's Longest Rail Trail." The 28-mile ride goes from just outside New Meadows to Council. Cost of the 28-mile ride is $45. The longer ride continues past Council and ends in Cambridge, a total distance of 48 miles. The cost for the 48-mile ride is $60. Both rides will have support vehicles and mechanics available to help with "minor" bike issues.

The cost for both rides includes shuttle transport, lunch and T-shirt.

Shuttles for the 28-mile ride will depart the Council Trailhead on the Hornet Creek Road at 9:00 AM Saturday June 3. Please arrive at least 30 minutes early. Riders will be shuttled to the start, about 2 miles west of New Meadows, where they will begin cycling, and finish in Council. A lunch will be provided for everyone at Council. The first 18 miles of this ride are rolling to mostly downhill along the headwaters of the Weiser River. The next 10 miles into Council are mostly flat. The trail is not paved, so mountain bikes or hybrid bikes with wide tires are recommended.

Shuttles for the 48-mile ride will depart the Cambridge Trailhead on Highway 95 at 7:45AM, Saturday June 3. The 48-mile ride covers the same section as the 28-mile ride, but will continue another 20 miles to Cambridge. Riders will be shuttled to the start, about 2 miles west of New Meadows, where they will begin cycling. After the lunch stop in Council, they will cycle another 20 miles to the finish in Cambridge.

Riders coming from the McCall/New Meadows area can also meet the group at the starting point for the ride, just west of New Meadows; however, if they wish to do that, they are responsible for their own transportation arrangements.They should drop off their bikes in the morning at the starting point, where someone will be there to watch them until they return on the shuttle to start the ride.
