Mountain biking is one of the best ways to explore Idaho. You can ride deep into the wilderness on a long, challenging adventure or take it easy in the state parks and bring the whole family along for the ride. If you lean towards the need-for-speed rather than the earn-your-turns mentality, you can even ride some ski resorts' lifts and skip the uphill battle (try Sliver Mountain and ride North America's longest Gondola ride!). Whatever two-wheeled adventure you're craving, Idaho's amazing mountain biking options will satisfy your needs.
