Wed Night MTB Brews and Burgers.
“Wednesday’s are my new Friday’s.” Said one rider earlier this year.
These are every Wednesday starting in the spring, going thru the fall.
More than likely this is the biggest group of people you’ve ever ridden with. Don’t let that scare you though because this is all about a good time. Someone from the shop always pulls up the rear.
A Coeur d’Alene community mountain biking event that tends to get 40-60 riders a week. Show up, ride your bike with friends, or new friends to come, then go to Slate Creek Brewing Co. for burgers and beers afterwards. $1 off your first pint for those who ride their bike.
Weekly sponsors pay for your burgers have included: Silver Mountain Bike Park, Shimano, Cannondale, Osprey, Kuat, Trail Maniacs, Local Friends like the Ghirarduzzi sisters & Russel Elder, Coeur d’Alene Bike Co., Mountain Cafe and Catering…the list goes on. You get the point. People want to be a part of this weekly event
Tuesday No Drop Road Ride:
Coeur d’Alene Bike Co. and Caleb Heibert will be hosting Tuesday no drop road rides through summer and early fall.
These rides are for everyone, but it’s highly recommended that you have a road bike. Any level of rider can participate in the ride.
Meet at Coeur d’Alene Bike Co., go for a spin, then go have a beer with everyone afterwards at the weekly chosen local destination. This is a great way to meet new people to ride with, or just catch up with friends.
No rider is left behind. You must be prepared for beautiful scenery, friendly people, and good beer. See you every Tuesday! Cheers!
IF YOU WANT REALLY THE SCOOP. YOU’LL HAVE TO STOP BY THE SHOP. WE ARE MORE THAN WILLING TO TELL YOU ABOUT ALL THE MOUNTAIN, ROAD, AND RECREATION TRAILS HERE IN THE CDA AREA.
MTB: The first thing you need to do is download the app Trailforks.This is one of the best resources anyone can have for us to tell you where to go. It also works in almost every riding area, anywhere. When you get here, just stop in and we’ll show you where to go.
We can’t start off the mountain bike conversation without mentioning the local favorite, Canfield Mountain. This place was originally established by the motorcycle scene. Don’t let that scare you though. This trail system is one of the most versatile anywhere around. It has something for everyone. The best part is that you can ride to it from anywhere in Coeur d’Alene. From the shop it’s a short 3.5 mile pedal to the trailhead. From there you have access to all of the Coeur d’Alene National Forrest. Take one of our many recommended loops and finish up back at the shop or at one of the local breweries. Grab a trail map at the shop and advice on what to ride. We know this place like the back of our hand. Get lucky and catch one of us heading out the door or join us on one of our Wednesday Night Bikes Brews and Burgers weekly group ride.

Silver Mountain Bike Park: When most people think of “Bike Park” they envision themselves looking down the face of reckless endangerment, but what most people don’t know is that this place has a system that accommodates the skills of every rider. Start out the family on the Chair 3 Zone and then let Billy drop trow into Baby Swiss, one of the coolest hand built features on the mountain. These machine, and hand built trails are some of the best in the world. Built with pride by the riders of the mountain. Every year the system gets better and better. If you’re lucky you will arrive during one of the many race events and you can test your skills against the Northwest’s best riders. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Silver-Mountain-Bike-Park/454195441350640?fref=ts
Coeur d’Alene Mountain: As one of the hosts of many bike races over the years we can’t go on without mentioning Trail 257, or exposed Caribou Ridge. Both trails have been ridden by locals since mountain biking was born. Don’t take it lightly though, if you can clean Caribou without a dab then you’re one of the few. If you want to make a day of it drop down the backside. Bring enough water and food to sustain yourself back to the front side. This is a killer place to spend the day.

ROADIE: There are so many great rides from our front door ranging from a quick out and back to Higgins Point along the beautiful Centennial Trail, or ride around Lake Coeur d’Alene. Stop by the shop and we can give you our favorite routes.
The Trail of the Coeur d’Alene’s is a great way to spend the day. Part of the rails to trails, there are many many miles of wilderness where you will see wildlife such as moose, and deer. There are great river and lake views that span for miles! 25 minute drive to the two closest trailheads.
Trail of the Hiawatha: One of the most scenic rides in America. The Hiawatha trail is home to an awesome blackout tunnel(lights required), followed by many miles of gravel road that crosses dozens of bridges and amazing mountain views.
