One of the premier rides in the Northwest, the CHAFE 150 happens June 15 with ride lengths for all abilities – from a 4-mile Family Fun Ride, to 30- and 40-mile rides into the beautiful Selle Valley, as well as the gonzo 80-, 100- and 150-mile gran fondo that winds into Montana’s lush Bull River Valley and back along Lake Pend Oreille. All rides start and end (with a party!) at Sandpoint City Beach. This year, a special event on June 14 is a pre-ride dinner with elite Paralympic gold medalist Tristen Chernove, pictured here.
