Gravel

Our favorite gravel rides. Some gravel routes border private land. We would like to remind riders to represent cyclists in the best light so we can continue to have a good relationship with land owners.

Mountain

With the Boise foothills so accessable from our shop, we have access to some amazing trails. Whether you like xc or enduro, Ridge to Rivers has made great trails for all styles. If it's solitude you're in search of, check out the trails in the Sawtooth NRA (National Recreation Area).
