Day 9-Coeur’d Alene to Wallace, ID-74.8 miles and 3620 feet of climbing.

A nice start through the city of Coeur’d Alene and downtown was great and out. The trail was great.

Our route took us into a gravel road and then some bushwhacking.

We got to a gravel road and out. SAG.

I took off after the SAG believing I was on route. I climbed a big hill and had crested to get the SAG truck to tell me that I was off course. I got a pic.

I went back done quick and rejoined the group on course.

This time the route was impassable. We later learned from the Trail maintenance crew of The Trail of the Coeur’d Alenes that this particular route was not supported but, was still used by cyclists. We had to reroute and it was to hop on I-90 for 19 miles. Cyclists were allowed on this stretch of interstate. We had to summit Fourth of July Pass.

We exited off at Catalda to find our SAG lunch and the Trail of the Coeur’d Alenes.
