Each year, two weeks after Labor Day weekend, thousands of folks converge near some cliffs outside of the town New Plymouth for Idaho’s largest Motorcycle event, The Big Nasty hill climb.  This year the dates for the 10th annual gathering are September 14-16 and organizers are hoping to top last years barn burner event  which featured  702 entries, set a single day attendance record on Saturday  of over 7000 and sold 468 camping passes.

The vent is on the AMA Pro-tour so  a large number of great bikes  and riders will be on hand in numerous categories and divisions.  If you’re not familiar with hill climbing competitions, here’s a video :

The $20  per vehicle camping pass covers all 3 days. Food and drink available from vendors on site and  there is nightly entertainment. If you’re not a camper your best bet for accommodations  will be 11 miles away in Ontario, OR.  Several motels  available there.  Bring a lawn chair and probably a sun umbrella or canopy, sit back and enjoy. Seldom any rain in this area at this time of the year.
