ENAVILLE — The 22nd annual Ride the Wall is set for June 21, and registration is open for those intrepid souls who enjoy the 13-mile ride on the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes.
Each year the event is put on to support the Rose Lake Quick Response Unit as well as the Silver Valley Fuller Center for Housing.
The original Ride the Wall event was the brainchild of the late Silver Valley icon Joe Peak and was held at the Cataldo Mission before the bike trail was completed.
Riders would go from the Mission, across the river on the dirt road, and back down, and upon the end of bike ride the bikes would have to be transported back to Mission where all the cars were parked.
The event was moved to the Snake Pit once the trail was completed, but after Peak’s passing the event moved back to the Mission before the Snake Pit was reopened in 2015.
Attendance has varied over the years, with a rough average of about 50 riders per year for the last few years
Registration is now open and is $50 per rider, which includes a shirt and barbecue dinner for the participants.
