Mission Statement

Ride Idaho's primary goal is to provide a positive economic impact to Idaho's communities. We accomplish this goal by hiring community organizations to supply the bicycle tour with meals, entertainment and logistical needs. Ride Idaho also invests in community development projects such as city park benches, playground equipment, first responder rescue equipment, school athletic equipment and other enhancemet projects that the communites need.

Finally, Ride Idaho's remaining tenants are to promote healthy, active lifestyles and raise awareness of safe cycling. in 2011, we delivered 20 bikes, helmets, and locks for the Boys and Girls Club in Garden City, ID.

Ride Idaho is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. Come along for the ride!
