3 day trip - August long weekend

About 1600KM, Night in Sandpoint in Idaho on Saturday, and night in Libby, Montana on Sunday.

Sunday we would ride Highway 97 along Lake Coeur D'Alene, and then St. Joe River Road. There's a 25km on dirt road once we cross the boarder Idaho/Montana.

Here's a map on my first draw:

    Wow! Another great trip. Thanks so much Simon P for these wonderful roads that you discover and share with us. What beautiful scenery too. Even though that one day of travelling for 12 hours was bit long for me, I was still in my glory the entire time. The food, wine, entertainment and company was icing on the cake!

    Please note an unexpected important matter has come up and unfortunately I'm going to have to pull out of this weekend ride which is very unfortunate as I was really looking forward to it. Hope you guys have a safe and enjoyable trip. Mike

    Great. How about if I join the group at Ghost Lake? I'll be there early waiting for all of you on the side of the road across GL parking lot.

    July 30, 2013

    • Simon P.

      We'll meet you in Canmore at the Petro Canada. Just in case we decide to use another route after we meet at COP Shell. And send me you cell phone number via email so i can text you of any change we might decide on Saturday morning.

    Good evening everybody,

    Thanks for the suggestions, but i'll keep the meetup as it is. I would like to leave at 8H30AM so we can get to Sandpoint at a decent time to enjoy a good dinner and a nice evening. And i'm planning to ride 1A all the way to Highway 93 where possible.

    The 3rd day is shorter from Libby than Sandpoint and give the chance to be home a little bit earlier as some of us may work on Tuesday. Therefore, i'll still keep the 2nd night in Libby.

    Mike, Donna and Simon D., if you change your mind and decide to go with Lou's plan, please let me know ASAP as i would need to cancel the hotel reservation on Friday at the latest so i don't pay any penalty.

    See you all on Saturday, i should be there around 8h15AM at the latest.

    Simon P.

    No change from me on original plan. From COP, where do you plan to catch the 1A?

    July 30, 2013

    • Simon P.

      We'll jump on Stoney Trail north

      July 30, 2013

  • Donna R.

    Hey guys. Simplicity always wins me over. I suggest sticking with the organizers itinerary. Lou, I hear the best part of the ride is day 2!

    Kevin, Dee Dee....bite me!!! lol

    Simon P & D, Donna and Lou,

    Look forward to meeting all of you this Saturday for our bike trip. Should be a good one.

    I'm in Cochrane and would like to suggest we meet at my house at 8:30 am Saturday instead. This way we can take a minute, have a coffee and get to meet each other and briefly discuss our trip so we are all on the same page before leaving. Then we can ride Hwy 1A out to Canmore (great biking route) and get onto Transcanada from there. We can fuel up in Cochrane if needed.

    If all of you are interested in this idea instead of the COP meeting place, pls confirm and I'll provide you with my address in Cochrane.
    Lot's of space to park your bike in the cul-de-sac. Look forward to your replies.

    Rgds! Mike

    Awesome trip. I would recommend stopping for lunch or breakfast at the Whistlestop Cafe in Paradise MT (on highway 200)...

    Hi Simon

    Looks like an enjoyable route so count me in. The only improvement to the route I would recommend would be to extend the last part of the route along Hwy 22 right through Black Diamond and Turner Valley to 22X, then turn eastward to the return location. Hwy 22 I find is more of a scenic secondary route and keeps you of the busy main #2 highway.
