JUNE 8th, 2024

(always the second Sat. in June)


Registration $39 // T-shirts will be available to order.



I Made the Grade is a bicycle ride that starts at Chief Timothy Park on Highway 12 West of Clarkston, Washington. The route travels along the Snake River, over the Red Wolf Bridge then over the Washington/Idaho state line and... the fun begins- up the Lewiston Hill along the Old Spiral Highway, and ends by the scenic vista at the top of the Hill. On a clear day, the view never stops. The route covers 18 miles in two states and climbs over

2,000 feet as riders twist and turn up the historic Old Spiral

Highway in Lewiston, Idaho. No secrets here... it is a LOT of

hard work!

While we know that riders enjoy timing their ride, this is not

a race. This is a ride of accomplishment rather than speed.

This has been a local family tradition for families or

individuals for decades. Some have traveled from all over

the US to enjoy this special day. Hydration stations and

encouragement are provided by volunteers from Harvest

Wesleyan Church and local community members. 

It takes months of planning and well over 50 volunteers

to provide the staffing

necessary for the ride to happen each year.

Riders from all over the Northwest and nation converge on Clarkston each June to Make the Grade
Many riders are seasoned to the event and have completed a dozen or more rides. 

We would love to have you join us!
