CHAFE 150 GRAN FONDO
ONE RIDE, 6 ROUTES, WHICH IS YOURS?
Sandpoint Rotary presents the 17th Annual CHAFE 150 Gran Fondo, named one of the top charity rides in the US! The ride takes place in Sandpoint, Idaho, the "Most Beautiful Small Town in the USA." The 150 mile route is a grand loop around the Cabinet Mountains-a frontal range of the Rocky Mountains of Idaho and Montana-through gorgeous lake and river valleys, encompassing one upriver leg, two downriver legs and one huge lake! In addition, CHAFE also offers magnificent 80, 40, and 25 mile road rides for riders of any level.
GET OFF THE BEATEN PATH AND RIDE OUR NEW GRAVEL RIDES
In 2023 we added a 55 mile gravel route and for 2024 we are going to offer a 75 mile gravel route that incorporates the 55 mile route and an additional 20 miles with amazing mountain views through the beautiful serene Selle Valley. The gravel routes will be the second leg of the new Idaho Panhandle Gravel Series.. The first leg of the series is the Three-Quarter Minus Cykeltur Gravel Grinder on May 4th, and the third leg is the Monarch Grind Gravel Grinder on June 29th.
FAMILY FUN RIDE
Join us for the CHAFE 150 Family Fun ride! For 2024, the ride will start and finish at Sandpoint City Beach with a fun 4 mile out and back ride on the Sand Creek Trail.
WHY WE RIDE
RIDE FOR READING!
By riding CHAFE, you are supporting reading programs vitally important to our community and the future of our young students. The Lake Pend Oreille School District and Sandpoint Rotary recognize the importance of students learning to read during their early school years. Proceeds from the ride will directly support the Book Trust program in grades K through 3 of all the Lake Pend Oreille School District's elementary schools. The program will enable students to select books throughout the school year that become their own books for reading in the classroom and at home. Proceeds from the ride directly support this major effort as well as other Rotary community Youth Services programs. Ride with us and make a difference!v
