Named the Top 3 charity rides by Bicycling Magazine, the Chafe 150 Gran Fondo route begins in Sandpoint, Idaho, (named "Most Beautiful Small Town in the USA,") and follows a grand loop around the Cabinet Mountains, a frontal range of the Rocky Mountains of Idaho and Montana—through gorgeous lake and river valleys.
The ride offers 6 distances to accommodate every level of rider: 150 mile loop, 100, 80, 40 and 25 mile rides. There is also a Family Fun Ride for riders of any level (more details on the Family Fun Ride and registration to come).
Chafe 150 is contributing the proceeds of the ride to the Lake Pend Oreille School District to help students improve their reading skills through after school and literacy programs.
The ride features 7 rest stops, SAG support that includes bike mechanics and registered nurses, complimentary rider Tshirt, breakfast and fun after-ride party.
