The theme of the national rally this year is the "Northwest Passage", referring to the expeditions of Lewis and Clark. Lewis and Clark were true adventurers. Our goals this year for the GS ride is in the spirit of Lewis and Clark, and we plan to provide some adventures into the beautiful wilderness of North Idaho and Eastern Washington. You will see some country that is absolutely breath-taking. There are literally thousands of miles of off-pavement riding in the inland northwest. You will have the choice of very well maintained gravel roads to hundreds of miles of single track trails. There are many lakes and mountain tops to explore. The rivers run crystal clean and are brimming with wild trout. If you are a fisherman, bring the fishing gear! We‘«÷ll have more later.
