The ride starts and finishes in beautiful Sandpoint, Idaho, on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille after winding into Montana through lush river valleys of the Cabinet Mountains.

CHAFE 150 treats riders to six fully stocked break stops, professional ride support, an epic after ride party and prizes for top fundraisers.

This event is staged by the Sandpoint Rotary Club to assist students in the Lake Pend Orielle School District on the autism spectrum. 1 in 68 children have been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
