MOUNTAIN BLISS ON TWO WHEELS: MOUNTAIN BIKING AT IDAHO ROCKY MOUNTAIN RANCH REACHES EPIC HEIGHTS

STANLEY, Idaho, March, 2013 – Nestled in the Sawtooth Valley with panoramic views of the Sawtooth Mountains, Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch is a perfect playground for travelers who crave pedal power. Mountain bikes at this all-inclusive luxury guest ranch are included in the price, and the ranch even packs a deluxe lunch for cyclists planning to explore the plethora of mountain biking trails surrounding the ranch.

Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch provides guests with specialized Rockhopper bikes in various sizes and bike helmets. Each bike has been outfitted with mountain biking necessities – pad brakes, front shocks and platform pedals – and is equipped with a pump, extra tube and tube repair kit. Plus, the ranch offers a free bike clinic every week with an initiation ride on ranch grounds.

“Our guests come here to relax and blow off steam, and there’s no better way to forget about the workaday world than to get into the rhythm of pedaling while enveloped by the breathtaking beauty of the Sawtooth Valley,” said Sandra Beckwith, lodge manager. “And if you’re not sure which trail you want to try, our concierge is ready to offer suggestions.”

Many of the trails begin right at the ranch, and other trailheads for some of the more challenging rides are just a few minutes’ drive from the ranch grounds, said Beckwith.

A new online video offers a glimpse of the eye-popping scenery that cyclists are likely to experience.  There are also descriptions of trails, which range from an easy 4.4-mile Fishhook Creek trail through lodgepole and Douglas fir forests to  the 38.1-mile Fourth of July to Pole Creek Road trail, a trail for advanced riders that offers scenic rewards like alpine lakes and mountain vistas along with exhilarating descents.

Cycling is just one of many activities guests of Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch can enjoy. This unplugged ranch – with WiFi only available in the lobby and no cell service – also features fishing in the Salmon River or the ranch’s catch-and-release pond, more than 200 hiking trails and guided horseback riding, a natural hot springs pool and supervised children’s activities, and there is whitewater rafting and rock climbing nearby. And for guests who want to recharge their motors with a sensory treat, there is relaxing on the ranch’s front porch in an Old Hickory rocker while taking in the view of the majestic Sawtooth Mountains.

Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch can accommodate up to 50 guests in 14 duplex cabin units, a nine-person family cabin, honeymoon cabin and four lodge rooms. Every day, guests are treated to hearty breakfasts, deluxe picnic lunches and dinners which are as much events as they are meals. Four nights a week, there is fine ranch cuisine, and families have the option of allowing children to dine early and then participate in supervised lawn games while adults relax with a leisurely meal. One night a week there is a Dutch oven dinner and two nights a week the ranch offers barbecue night. Live entertainment is featured four nights a week.

The ranch is open June through September.

During the months of June and September, rates begin at $185 per night for guests staying in a lodge room between one to three nights and $170 per night for guests staying four or more nights in a lodge room. During July and August, rates begin at $200 per night for guests staying one to three nights and $185 per night for guests staying four or more nights.
