What is the Sawtooth Bike Trek?

Celebrating its 15th year, the Sawtooth Bike Trek is a three-day, 150-mile recreational expedition through some of Idaho?s most scenic vistas that begins in Fairfield and ends at Kirkham Hot Springs. This freewheeling, noncompetitive excursion -- an annual fundraiser for the American Lung Association of Idaho/Nevada -- is open to novices and advanced riders alike and places an emphasis on fun.

Road bikes are recommended, but you can ride whatever wheels you prefer -- from mountain and tandem bikes to recumbent cycles and rickshaws. Plus, you have all day to complete each segment - which averages 50 miles -- so you can ride at your own pace, take in the breathtaking views, and enjoy the company of 100 fellow cyclists.


A fully supported three-day adventure over Galena and Banner summits.

The support - No rider is left behind with the experienced Sawtooth Bike Trek staff and volunteers on hand to ensure this memorable experience is safe and fun.

The Route - Day one begins in the Fairfield area and ends in Sun Valley, where you?ll enjoy a night?s stay, massage, dinner, and breakfast at the world-renowned Sun Valley Resort. On day two, you?ll climb Galena Summit and then coast to Saturday night?s lodgings -- lakeside cabins at Camp Perkins. Day three is a beautiful ride through the stunning Stanley Basin that culminates in a climb to Banner Summit followed by an optional downhill ride or you can take the bus to Kirkham Hot Springs. Please note accommodations are shared and Sawtooth Bike Trek officials reserve the right to change lodgings if needed.


It?s easy to get your wheels in motion.

First, you need to register.

Then you need to do a little fundraising that will help fund important American Lung Association programs. First thing is for you to set-up your fundraising webpage, on this site. We also will supply you with other fundraising tools you?ll need, including ideas and advice from trekkers who continue to raise thousands of dollars each year.

A minimum of $400 in pledges is required and must be paid on or before the morning of Sept. 15, 2004. It?s pretty easy -- with the average trekker raising more than $600.
