Idaho is calling. Enjoy the Ride!
Idaho is near and dear to our hearts at ABC, join us on an epic trip to our home away from home.
A guided trip by locals in a mountain bike "Gem State"
This trip is a fully-supported, all-inclusive, and well organized chance to ride singletrack in and around Boise, Idaho. Ashland Bike Company's owner, Anthony Bunt, was once a local of these trails and has organized this trip to allow riders from his home state of Ohio to have the opportunity to travel to and ride in an area unlike anything in Ohio. Riders who participate with us on this journey will enjoy three full days of riding with plenty of variety; challenging climbs, big descents, miles upon miles of trails and alpine scenery. The best part, you don't have to worry about anything except riding and resting up for the next day. Want to know more? Check out the links on this page or speak with us at the shop.

Boise Foothills - Alpine Trails - Owyhee Desert.
Day 1: The Boise Foothills
We are warming up to Idaho with some of the most popular trails in the state with in the Boise Foothills. The "Footies" are some of the most buffed out, fast, and open trails in the state. Plenty of options to keep you out all day, with a great view of the Gem State capital around every bend. This is a trail system that offers something for everyone with climbing, descending, twisting singletrack and great opportunities to get a feel of the riding right at the edge of the biggest city in Idaho. You can't go to Boise and not
Day 2: Bogus Basin
3000 feet above the Boise skyline lies the Alpine ski area of Bogus Basin. This area offers a more exciting opportunity to test your legs and lungs against the mountains. Don't worry though, we'll be shuttling you to some of the best descents in Idaho. We're planning on two great rides for day two with a more XC/trail style ride in the morning and a shuttled descending ride in the afternoon.
Day 3: The Wild West; the Owyhees.
The Owyhees (Oh-why-hees) are the true wild west. Sage brush, ghost towns, sand dunes, vocanic rocks, big open views, and endless miles of trails. These trails can be rougher than that in the Boise Front, but the views are worth it. Much of this area is ranching country, but wild horses, bighorn sheep, and mule deer are common sights. These are unlike any trails in Ohio, and you'll be dreaming of this wild place for years to come. It has been said that the Owyhees is one of the most remote areas in the lower 48. We'll finish our Owyhee day with a big farm dinner at a nearby farm with a campfire and views of the beautiful Idaho sky.
