CHAFE 150 GRAN FONDO
ONE RIDE, 5 ROUTES, WHICH IS YOURS?
Sandpoint Rotary presents the 16th 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 rides for riders of any level. We are dropping the 100 mile route in 2023.
Join us for the CHAFE 150 Family Fun ride! For 2023, the ride will start and finish at Sandpoint City Beach with a fun out and back ride on the Sand Creek Trail.
NEW THIS YEAR
New for the 2023 CHAFE 150 Gran Fondo is a "Gravel Route" that will start and finish at City Beach Park in Sandpoint. The route will be an out and back combination of pavement, gravel and forest service roads. After breakfast riders will leave City Beach and ride a combination of paved and gravel backroads to the Trestle Creek area east of Sandpoint where the pavement ends. It will take you through the beautiful Selle Valley, along Lake Pend Oreille and traverse the "high country" on Trestle Creek Road and return to City Beach Park for the community-wide After-Ride party.
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 on a monthly basis throughout the school year that become their own books for reading 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!
WHEN YOU RIDE CHAFE, YOU’RE SUPPORTED.
CHAFE 150 supports riders with fully stocked break stops, professional ride support, an epic after ride party, and prizes for top fundraisers. Nurses, mechanics, and volunteers come together to make CHAFE the best ride you’ll ever experience!
