Into Idaho and Southward

Jun 24th 2009 — Biking,Montana and Idaho Loop — 7:53 am

After Libby we went back northwest to Bonners Ferry where we camped at their fairgrounds and really hoboed up a run sponsored by the local high school that happened the next morning as we were eating breakfast and getting ready.

Then we went south to Coeur D’Alene where Jeff’s Dad put us up in our first hotel of the trip, the State Motel. The State motel is highly recommended for its reasonable pricing, proximity to downtown, friendly owner, and his dog that was fond of coming in your room if you left the door open. I believe this was my first shower of the trip.

From Coeur D’Alene we actually rode on the interstate east for 8 miles in order to be able to ride south on the road bordering the eastern side of the lake. A couple hundred yards from the interstate exit a 2 inch nail ended up giving me my first flat of the trip. It was worth it though as the road turned out to have good views of the lake and very little traffic.
