Rebecca’s Private Idaho (RPI) is the state’s premiere gravel bike race and Sun Valley’s third-largest event every year! A gritty and glorious gravel adventure open to riders from all over the world, RPI invites contestants to pedal with purpose in support of the Be Good™ Foundation, which uses the bicycle as a catalyst for healing, empowerment, and evolution. Participating in RPI is not only a thrilling challenge for riders of all levels, but it’s also a chance to connect with the local community and celebrate people, purpose, and place!
There is more than one way to join in on the fun! If you’re looking to make the trek to Sun Valley, there are four races, including the three-day Queen’s Stage Race as well as the one-day Baked Potato (102 miles), French Fry (56 miles), and Tater Tot (20 miles) courses. After the race, look forward to the finishing party with live music, local food and other vendors, games, and more!
Can’t make it in person? Participate from anywhere in the world through RPI Remote.
If you’re not wanting to fly with your bike, allow some of the local shops to take care of it! Through RPI, you are able to have your bike shipped and built to be ready for you upon arrival.

RPI Sun Valley takes place from August 30 – September 3, 2023. Beginning with a rider welcome expo and ending with the awards ceremony, riders are in for a thrilling few days.
