Tour of Idaho





















The Tour of Idaho (T1) is a 1400-mile dirt bike ride that begins in the Malad Range of southern Idaho and ends in the Selkirk Mountains near the Canadian border. It is very likely one of the most difficult long dirt bike rides in the United States. It is NOT a dual sport ride - plated dirt bikes, with lights, are required. There is a dual sport variant, T3, and a 500-mile dual sport friendly East-West Tour known as T2. Idaho has some new requirements for offroad motorcycles. If your bike is plated out of state, you should be fine.

Technical challenges include mud, snow, extensive sections of technical single track, rocky atv trails, numerous water crossings and deep sand. The variety of plants, animals and geological features found along the way is amazing. The riding is varied, challenging and always interesting. If you are the type of person who feels comfortable rebuilding a bike in the middle of nowhere, or lashing logs together to cross a swollen creek, T1 is for you.

The Tour is generally passable by mid July each year and remains open until October during most years (some trails close October 1 for hunting season). There is a distinct possibility of blistering heat, brutal cold and deluges of biblical proportions - rain, snow or both - along the entire route. All of the above may be encountered within just a few hours.
