August 31, 2019 Riding through ID and into Missoula State line between Tekoa WA and Plummer ID Western terminus of the Coure D’Alene Trail – a gold standard example of Rails-to-trail conversion – all paved, great condition, just 5 miles of incline at 3% grade. Lovely. Coure D’Alene Trail – bridge crossing over Chacolet Lake Eastern trail terminus in Mullan Nor Pac Trail – saw a bear cub here. No mama. Route of the Olympians just after a hail storm – a hail pellet is just smaller than an M&M Adventure Cycling Association HQ in Missoula – beautiful offices… …complete with secure bike parking… …cyclists lounge with wifi, desks, beverages, ice cream… …and visiting rider wall.
