The 2016, 22nd annual STOKR bike ride was held on Saturday and Sunday, May 14 & 15th in Libby. STOKR is held each year on the second full weekend in May. There is a limit of 450 riders. Money raised goes to build Habitat for Humanity homes for those in need in Libby, Montana. It takes two STOKR fundraisers to build one Habitat for Humanity Home.
Saturday offers two options, a 98-mile long and a shorter 45-mile route that follows the Kootenai River and along Pipe Creek. Both are very scenic. The Start/Finish is at the Libby Chamber of Commerce on Highway 2.
Sunday riders go along a 37-mile ride following the scenic Kootenai River upstream to Lake Koocanusa and the Visitor Center at Libby Dam. Riders go on a private side road with a minimal amount of the traffic.
