Don't worry there probably won't be snow on these peaks on race day...Hopefully!
For the ultimate biker, fitness enthusiast or casual masochist . This is our solo ride of over 80 miles and almost 8000ft of elevation gain. This road bike ride is only timed on the uphill portions, so no need to blast down the hill.
If you like yourself a little more than the solo riders, but want to experience the whole beauty of the event with a team then this is the ride for you. Gather your teammates and split up the peaks however you see fit between transition areas. Your team can have between 2 and 4 people.
We are putting on a new version of our introductory ride this year! We are introducing the Single Peak. Each year we will offer a single peak option that will change every year on a rotating basis to offer you an introduction to our epic ride.
In an effort to align with our values and our claim to the “Toughest Ride in Idaho” we have made the decision to eliminate the Valley Ride from this year forward. To keep our vision and prepare all of our riders for participation in our full ride we have made the decision to establish our Single Peak Challenge. This challenge will consist of riding from the beginning of our ride in Inkom, completing Crystal Summit, and returning. We believe this ride will continue to prepare people year over year in order complete the ultimate challenge of 4 Peaks Gran Fondo. We hope to see you there!
