Ride Idaho's 15th year anniversary ride is now history.
And what a great week of memories it was!
The scenery was amazing from the tall pine trees and picturesque rivers to the lush green agricultural fields including, onions, potatoes, mint and the vigorous climbing hop vines that twist up to 25 feet above ground. The riders were treated to a hilarious performance of Disney’s Newsies at the Starlight Mtn Theatre, splashed and laughed as they rafted the ever-popular Payette River and were introduced up close to several species of raptors at our overnight camp in the canyon of “Snake River Birds of Prey”, Swan Falls Dam.
Our volunteers this year did so much more then satisfy the hunger and thirst of the riders, they were the smiles, laughter and encouragement to made each day more enjoyable, Thank you!
A special thank you to the Idaho State Parks and Rec Department, Idaho Power, the cities of Emmett, Homedale and Marsing for allowing us to camp on their beautiful city parks. To the So Fork Lodge, the Starlight Mountain Theatre and the communities that helped support the event by providing meals and luggage handling, you were awesome.
To our sponsors who without there generous support, the ride would not have had the success we’ve enjoyed these past 15 year, Thank you!
