This is a low-level course through the Yakima River valley out to a lunch stop in Toppenish and back. It follows generally quiet roads through eastern Washington farmland. Some pre-ride notes from a couple of years ago are still relevant.
There's a good chance it can be chilly or windy or both this time of year, so consider bringing extra layers. Like all our brevets, this is an unsupported ride but there are sufficient opportunities to find food and drink along the route.
