    Inquiry on safest route from Spokane to Sandpoint ???

    Hello - Not being familar with your beautiful part (the Pacific Northwest) of our country, could you please advise me of the lowest traffic/safest route from Spokane (will be leaving from REI downtown) to Sandpoint?
    I will be mounting up after 'morning weekday traffic.'
    - Many thanks.

    Here's a link to a Biketoaster route. http://www.bikeroutetoaster.com/Cour...x?course=60172
    The main Hiways 2 and 200 are not too bad but busy. These back roads are quiet. bring your dog spray. The loop in Newport is not necessary the toaster just won't go against the one way. This route goes around the business district in Deer Park but it's just a few blocks away for a meal.
    Enjoy your trip to the NW.
    Relax, it's a bike ride.

    Thank you + thank you + thank you very much for your time and your advice..... I would never have become aware of this route without your taking the time to help me on this matter.

    Yeah, I would say that is an excellent route. Once you get out of north Spokane County, the roads are very quiet until you hit SR 95 just south of Sandpoint. Have a great trip.
