RTL this year will be at Priest Lake on Saturday, August 28, 2010. The route will go counter-clockwise starting at Beaver Creek campground, around the lower lake, all along the East side, up around the North end of the upper lake and back down to Beaver Creek. What can you expect? About 37 miles of paved road riding and approximately 38 miles of some super-sweet single track. The route I have planned will keep you on single track as much as possible, cutting out road riding. I will hand out detailed maps and turn-by-turn directions before we start. Registration is between 7-7:45am Saturday morning and will be $15. If you want and event tee, email me your size before August 19, for an extra $10. Will the tees be cool? Absolutely! If you know me, I love designing shirts. Check back and I will post a pic of the design. Also, there will be a rest stop and a lunch stop along the way. What more do you want?
Proceeds benefit Team Laughing Dog's RAAM team. If you don't know about this adventure, 4 guys from Sandpoint are going to ride across the U.S., totally 3,000 miles in 9 days. They will start in Oceanside, CA and end in Annapolis, MD. This all takes place next June and will raise funds for autism research. I will be one of the mechanics on the 14-member support crew who will follow these riders in vans to ensure that they arrive safely and without incident.
Hope to see you at Priest Lake!! It will be an awesome ride. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Thanks.
