Idaho Selkirk Loop

Samenvatting

international-selkirk-loop-sign-555x544

Noord-Washington en Idaho zijn fantastisch voor een fietsvakantie. Kilometers aan schilderachtige wegen, ongerepte landschappen, zomerzon, eindeloze vergezichten en een verhard fietspad maken deze regio tot een fietsparadijs! Het draait allemaal om de rivieren, meren en bergen: de bergketens Bitterroot, Selkirk en Cabinet, het spectaculaire Lake Coeur d'Alene en Lake Pend Oreille, genesteld in de bergketens van Idaho's panhandle. De tour omvat ook een dag op het fietspad van de Coeur d'Alenes langs de rivier de Coeur d'Alene. Adem diep in, fiets en geniet van een dag vol prachtige uitzichten!

Routebeschrijving

Inclusief / Niet Inclusief – lodging


Day 1: Begin in Kettle Falls and along the Columbia River

The Selkirk Mountains range (pardon the pun) into eastern Washington, northern Idaho, and southeastern British Columbia. Begin your week of cycling in Kettle Falls, Washington. Prior to 1941, when the Grand Coulee Dam was erected and this portion of the upper Columbia River was transformed into Franklin D. Roosevelt Lake, a major waterfall plummeted nearly fifty feet carving out “kettles” in the quartzite rock below. Cycle a lovely loop along both sides of the river today and spend the night at the Comfort Inn in Colville, WA.
Afstand 71 mijlen (of minder) Hoogteverschil +3,470 ft / -3,531 ft (of minder)
Maaltijden: ontbijt, lunch, diner. Overnachting: Comfort Inn

Day 2: Pedal through million-acre Colville National Forest

Cross from the Columbia River basin to the Pend Oreille River watershed today on a quiet and scenic route through the heart of Colville National Forest – a “gift” from Theodore Roosevelt which is now over a million acres in breadth. This amazing and remote habitat is the home of the last remaining herd of caribou in the lower 48 states, as well as most of the wolf packs in Washington State. Natives revered this region for its salmon, wild huckleberries, and camas prairies – the bulb from this beautiful blue lily was their most important source of carbohydrates. After visiting Metaline Falls, enjoy tranquility, and a gorgeous river setting at the Riverview Motel in tiny Ione, WA (Pop. 375).
Maaltijden: ontbijt, lunch, diner. Overnachting: Riverview Motel
Afstand: 72 mijlen (of minder) Hoogteverschil: +4,777 ft / -4,291 ft (of minder)

Day 3: ride down the Pend Oreille River into Idaho and enjoy a sunset wildlife viewing boat ride.

If you didn’t do the Metaline Falls and Sullivan Lake loop yesterday afternoon, you will want to do it this morning before heading down the Pend Oreille River. If you rode it yesterday, you’ll know that it’s so nice that you just might want to pedal it again today! For unique views we recommend going in the opposite direction around the loop. Local natives once referred to the Pend Oreille River as simply The River. Today, outdoor enthusiasts often refer to it as The Zoo for its spectacular birding and wildlife viewing opportunities. Cross into Idaho and stay at the modest but comfortable Eagles Nest Motel in Priest River where you can join the owner for a sunset wildlife viewing boat ride.
Maaltijden: ontbijt, lunch, diner. Overnachting: Eagles Nest Motel
Afstand: 87 mijlen (of minder) Hoogteverschil: +3,907 ft / -3,798 ft (of minder)

Day 4: Ride along the Pend Oreille River to Sandpoint, Idaho

Today we continue down the Pend Oreille River to Sandpoint, Idaho nestled up against the Selkirk Mountains and the shores of Lake Pend Oreille. Simply put, it’s a lovely ride to a lovely town that is not to be missed. In 2013, USA Today put Sandpoint on its list of “10 Picture-Perfect Mountain Towns” and Men’s Journal described it as “urbane and cultured,” declaring it “Idaho’s Hippest Mountain Town”. We think you will agree! Spend the next two nights lakeside at the Best Western Edgewater Resort.
Maaltijden: ontbijt, lunch,diner. Overnachting: Edgewater Resort
Afstand: 47 mijlen. Hoogteverschil: +2,398 ft / -2,478 ft

Day 5: Explore Sandpoint. USA Today named it the nation’s “Most beautiful smal town.”

Explore Sandpoint today. Riding, hiking, golf, or fishing – take your pick from a bevy of options for things to do on your own. Surrounded by the Selkirk, Cabinet and Bitterroot ranges, Sandpoint is also home to Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort, Idaho’s second largest ski resort after Sun Valley. If mountaintops are your thing, shuttle (or pedal) up to the resort and enjoy a complimentary lift-ticket to see the fabulous views from the top. Hike or ride the lift back down. Lunch and dinner are on your own today.
Maaltijd: ontbijt. Overnachting: Edgewater Resort

Day 6: Ride south: quiet, scenic roads lead to the beautiful resort of Coeur d’Alene.

Sixty-five miles of scenic side roads wind south from Sandpoint to the idyllic resort town of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Early French-speaking fur traders called the local peoples the Coeur d’Alene (translation: “awl heart,” meaning ‘sharp-hearted’ or ‘shrewd’). spectacular birding and wildlife viewing opportunities is one of the most spectacular places in the Idaho Panhandle. It’s the perfect place to watch tonight’s sunset. Stay at the historic Roosevelt Inn.
Maaltijden: omtbjt, lunch, diner. Overnachting: Roosevelt Inn
Afstand: 65 miles. Hoogteverschil: +1877 ft / -1790 ft

Day 7: Ride the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes before heading back to Spokane for your homeward flight.

Ride the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes before heading back to Spokane for your homeward flight. This may be the flattest ride in Idaho. The Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes bike path follows the Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way along the shore of Lake Coeur d’Alene, into the Chain Lakes region and the historic Silver Valley. You won’t have time to ride the whole thing today, but it still makes the perfect last-day finale ride. And gives you a reason to come back!
Maaltijden: Ontbijt
Afstand: 46 mijlen. Hoogteverschil: +578 ft / -572 ft
