Sandpoint Rotary presents the 16th Annual CHAFE 150 Gran Fondo, named one of the top charity rides in the US! The ride takes place in Sandpoint, Idaho, the "Most Beautiful Small Town in the USA." The 150 mile route is a grand loop around the Cabinet Mountains-a frontal range of the Rocky Mountains of Idaho and Montana-through gorgeous lake and river valleys, encompassing one upriver leg, two downriver legs and one huge lake! In addition, CHAFE also offers magnificent 80, 40 and 25 mile routes for riders of any level!
And new this year, we are excited to offer a new 55 mile gravel route will be approximately 35 miles of forest service roads and the backroads of Selle Valley.
By riding CHAFE, you are supporting reading programs vitally important to our community and the future of our young students. The Lake Pend Oreille School District and Sandpoint Rotary recognize the importance of students learning to read during their early school years. Proceeds from the ride will directly support the Book Trust program in grades one and two of all the Lake Pend Oreille School District's elementary schools. The program will enable students to select books on a monthly basis throughout the school year that become their own books for reading at home. Proceeds from the ride directly support this major effort as well as other Rotary community Youth Services programs. Ride with us and make a difference!
