Description: Pack your passports for this international bicycle tour as we go through some of the finest terrain that Canada and the U.S. have to offer. From picturesque New Denver, British Columbia, we’ll head through several fascinating small towns before crossing the U.S. border into Washington State, where we’ll follow the Pend Oreille River through Metaline Falls down to Priest River, Idaho. We’ll end up spending a well-earned rest day in Sandpoint, then zip up to the most northerly section of the Idaho panhandle before crossing the border back into British Columbia. Join us for this memorable ride amidst sparkling waterways, pastoral countryside, and spectacular mountain terrain!
