What is IMtG?

I Made the Grade is a bicycle ride that starts at Chief Timothy Park on Highway 12 West of Clarkston, Washington, 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 at 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 Clarkston Wesleyan Church and friends.

It takes around 50 volunteers from the church and the community to provide the staffing necessary for the ride to  happen each year.

Riders from all over the Northwest 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!






We start at Chief Timothy park in Clarkston, Washington and end at the top of a beautiful look out in Lewiston, Idaho.
