Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes Tour - 2023

Ride leader: Cindy Proctor,, 425-293-3152.


  • By Wednesday, May 31st, 2023
  • Group size limited to 8.
  • Riders must make their own lodging reservations.  


  • Links to RideWithGPS routes for each day are being developed and will be available before the event.  
  • You must make your own lodging reservations soon. 
  • This tour is planned for overnight stays in motels and most meals in restaurants to minimize weight and bulk on the bikes.


  • The steady “effort” pace of this tour is intended for riders who regularly ride paved roads at a steady pace slowed down by touring gear, uphills, headwinds, photo stops, etc. 
  • Routes pass through sections with wild areas, opportunities to get lost, and sometimes no cell phone service.  The plan is to keep everyone within line of sight and frequent regroups for safety. 


  • Your bike must be in good condition and ready for the route. 
  • You must carry your personal gear on your bike for 2 nights in Harrison.
  • Before the tour starts you should test ride your bike fully loaded for the tour to make sure everything fits and will stay where it belongs on the bike.

The Plan:  The tour schedule, estimated costs, and suggested lodging for each night are in the attached spreadsheet.  Bad weather could cause a reschedule.  Check with the Ride Leader if in doubt.
