(Aug. 23, 2023 – KETCHUM, ID) - Rebecca's Private Idaho (RPI), now in its 11th year, offers four days of world-class racing and riding over nearly 200 miles of gravel in the center of Idaho's heartland, August 31-September 3. Riders may choose a one-day gravel race or, for experienced and elite racers, participate in the four-day Queen's Stage Race. RPI is one of America's longest-running, mass-participation gravel races, and is rated a Top Five Gravel Event by Global Cycling Network and one of the 25 Best Bike Rides in the World by Outside Magazine.
All RPI riders pedal with a purpose, supporting the Be Good™ Foundation, which seeks to enrich communities by using the bicycle as a catalyst for healing, empowerment, and evolution.
Proceeds from various aspects of RPI are used by the Foundation to support global, national, and local nonprofit organizations that use the bicycle to improve health and overall well-being, connect communities, boost local economies, and protect our planet.
RPI was founded in 2013 by Rebecca Rusch, who is a seven-time world champion, record setting endurance and adventure athlete, bestselling author, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. It has been staged every Labor Day weekend since then in Rebecca's hometown and surrounding backcountry of Ketchum, Idaho.
