Welcome to DRR in 2017. This will be our season opening ride.
Amazingly, for the first time in living memory, our spring 200 km will not use the Flat Yak route. That's because the bridge over the Yakima is still out on Meyers Road between Toppennish and Zillah. Instead we have an awesome new alternative route up the Yakima valley and back, with all new control locations (Route 2033-WA: Yakety Bak).
There's still a possibility of wintery weather at the end of Feb, and there's a good chance it could be chilly or windy. Bring extra layers and a weatherproof shell. Like all our brevets, this is an unsupported ride but there are opportunities to find food and drink along the route.

As an early season ride there's a significant possibility of riding in the dark so lights and reflective gear that satisfy RUSA rules must be carried and used.
