Return to Kamiah - 2017

For the last 6 years we have kicked off the riding season with a weekend overnight ride from Kennewick to Kamiah, Idaho. It was called a Beginneer's Ride in past years because we had a least one group that was tailored for new riders or experienced riders wanting to ride a relaxed pace but for most the ride has transitioned to a destination ride with 2-4 groups that ride their own route and pace and some solo riders that elect to meet at the motel in Kamiah.

Many have requested the 2017 Kamiah ride to be a 3 day event to have an extra day to take advantage of all the good riding around Kamiah so this year's ride is scheduled to start on Friday, May 5, with a return on Sunday, May 7. Anyone wishing to join the group on Saturday May 6 is certainly welcome (I will be looking for a volunteer willing to lead a group on Saturday from Kennewick if there is enough interest). We again have a group rate at the Clearwater 12 motel in Kamiah and this year's cost is only 2 dollars more than last years.....$59.40 for a single bed and $70.20 for double queen beds. These costs include tax plus a pretty good continental breakfast and are $18 less than their normal rates. They are NOT holding a block of rooms for us so everyone needs to make their own reservation to guarantee a room. Last year we filled 26 of their 28 rooms on Saturday so I would advise making a reservation for May 5 and/or May 6 ASAP if you think you are going. As of today, every room is available except mine. You can contact the Clearwater 12 on 1-888-935-2826 or 208-935-2671 and tell them you are part of "Steve's Ride" to get the group rate.

Its still a long time until May 5 but I wanted to let everyone know the dates so they can plan accordingly. I will post a second thread with more details in March.
