Idaho's Iconic Gravel Bike Race Welcomes Adaptive Athletes This Year

Challenged Athlete Foundation
via Facebook
"One Arm Willie" Stewart.


Each year, Idaho athletes hit the trail for the Smoke and Fire 400. This is a 430 mile, 40,000 feet elevation gain gravel bike race through tough Gem State terrain. And this year, four athletes with the Challenged Athletes Foundation will be participating. 

Joining Idaho Matters to talk more about the foundation and the race is Willie Stewart, one of the adaptive athletes who will be taking on this race. (Here's how to donate to the foundation.)
