Ride Idaho—a roughly 400-mile, seven-day recreational bicycle tour around some of the most beautiful and historic places in the Gem State—announced the 2014 route at the annual kick-off party on Tuesday night at Beside Bardenay. This year's event will start and finish in Twin Falls, looping through Malad Gorge State Park, the Wood River Valley and the City of Rocks.

Between 350 and 400 riders from around the country are expected to attend the 10th iteration of Ride Idaho—making it one of the most popular annual cycling events in the state.

Director Earl Grief is very happy with the response Ride Idaho receives from the communities along its route. "Its about tourism and health—we give back to different communities in different ways. We've given equipment to Sandpoint and to Coeur d' Alene to help clean the trails and clean the beaches. We also align with the Idaho Pedestrian & Bicycle Alliance," said Grief.

With an average age of 55, nightly entertainment and a relaxed vibe, Ride Idaho offers something for most skill and fitness levels.The event runs Aug. 3-9, 2014.
