I'm interested, I usually ride alone but I've been wanting to do some group riding. Where, when and how long, Im retired so I have a lot of free riding time. I have spent enough time in Idaho to know that I want to see more. Boise is a short day ride from my location, depending on which route I take, more details please.

You will all have to let me know where you are staying so I can make plans to meet. We need to leave by about 8:00 to make the loop and get back by dark. It gets light by 8:00 here so we won't have to ride in the dark.

Post here or PM me with details.

So -- anyone care to hazard a guess as to the total mileage of this ride?
Hmm - if I took the most direct route I am 1316 miles round trip, but I never get under 1750 miles for this weekend outing. Last year my total mileage was 2143 miles. It was gooooood.

If the weather holds, I'll be coming up. John, are you still leading a ride on Sunday? Any motel recommendations in Boise? I see there's a bunch at Exit 53 and a Best Western Northwest Lodge at Exit 57.

There seem to be at least four Basque restaurants in Winnemucca - is there a favorite for those coming to this run?

Best I can remember is that the plans in Runamucka were the old Basque Hotel about two blocks off the main drag. And there are a bunch staying at Days Inn in Winnemucca, NV 775-623-3661. Might send a PM or email to DaleC.

And there is a group spending Saturday night in Enterprise, OR at the Pondorosa Hotel after a leisurly ride across the Snake River and up the east side of the Willowa Mountains on the forest road from Halfway to Joseph.

Gots to remember that Monday is a Holiday - Columbus day - for those of you that still have real jobs.

If youy mean "Bill are you still leading a ride on Sunday?" - yes I am. We will be going around a loop af about 350 miles to include Sun Valley, Idaho.

Weather looks good for the ride - mostly sunny with temps in the 60's.

Looking forward to seeing you all here.
