Basin to Crest 2020 – September 8th – October 17th

The BCC is an individual challenge, not an organized event or race. The route takes in the best trails Sandpoint has to offer, leading you from the Lower Basin trailhead above switchback 2 on Schweitzer Mountain Road to the top of POP’s newest trail on Uleda Ridge. Turn around and enjoy the 3,800 foot descent back to the Lower Basin!

Here’s the route. Give it a ride, take a selfie at Uleda Point, and tag POP (@pendoreillepedalers) to let us know you made it! Turn around, and enjoy the descent! Join us at our end of the year party on October 18th at 2:30 in Pine Street Woods to share your story about the ride. All POP members who complete the ride before the party will receive a limited edition, commemorative mud guard to celebrate your accomplishment!
