Where: Spokane, Mission Park parking lot.
Who: Anybody with a love for European cars and cheap BBQ.
What to bring: Your car (washed, waxed, detailed, etc.), yourself, some donation money for food (not required but would be nice), or some non perishable food (canned, dried, etc.) as a donation to Second Harvest food bank
This is not a judged show. It is a mass gathering for those who are enthusiastic about anything Euro.
Stage 1: From the Valley Mall to exit 22 off I-90 just on the other side of Coeur D'Alene. Take the Wolf Lodge exit and make a right. Go across the bridge where we'll park for a photo shoot and prepare for the next stage.
Stage 2: Leave the photo shoot area and start around the lake on 97. Speed limits are clearly posted so please keep it safe. The route around the lake at this point is very curvy with many elevation changes. This is really one of the best parts of the cruise.
Stage 3: This takes us into Harrison. Last year the resteraunt there closed. So we'll probably stop by the pizza place in St. Maries further down the route on stage 4 for lunch.
Stage 4: After heading out of Harrison on 97 mind your speed, then into some of the best roads Idaho has to offer. Lots of twisties! This stage will take us all the way to state road 3 where we'll either go north (see Plan B on the Map) through some more twisties and end up back on I-90 or we go south and through St. Maries. We'll need to watch the speed again going through here as I hear the police are very friendly and would like to meet you.
Stage 5: The longest stage of the cruise. After St. Maries were onto 5 and more twisties. We'll hit Plummer and go north on 95 to Worley. From there we either make a left onto 58 then to Rockford or continue north (see plan C). A left going north on 27 will take us through Freeman, Mika and finally back to the Spokane Valley. Continuing north on 95 takes us back to Coeur D'Alene.
Expect the cruise to take anywhere from 4-5 hours. So plan ahead, take snacks, drinks what ever. Also take along your 2 way radios. We'll cover what channels we'll use for the cruise when we meet at the Spokane Valley Mall.
