Idaho Cycling Enthusiasts (“ICE”) was founded in 1997 “to encourage bicycle riding, to promote a healthy lifestyle, provide recreational opportunities and demonstrate that cycling is a practical means of transportation.” ICE is the current incarnation of what over the years has been a sequence of bicycle clubs in the Pocatello area. ICE is an unincorporated non-profit association. ICE puts on a number of competitive road racing events as well as a local flat and uphill time trial series every summer.
ICE memberships are $10 for individuals and $20 for families. Online processing fees are included in this price. ICE membership benefits include discounts at Barrie’s Ski and Sports, free entry to the hill climb and time trial series, and reduced entry fees to all other club events. Plus, members get to enjoy being a part of a growing community of healthy, fun-loving two-wheeled athletes in southeastern Idaho. Most club members are from Pocatello, but the club has a growing number of members from outside Pocatello, including Idaho Falls and other upper valley cities, the Bear Lake area, and Salt Lake City. ICE is a club member of the League of American Bicyclists (LAB), USA Cycling (USAC), and the International Mountain Biking Association. Noncompetitive ICE events (including the time trial/hill climb series) are held under LAB insurance, and the Tax Day Circuit Race is held under USAC insurance.
