DRR Spring 200km ACP Brevet 2/27/2016

Yep. It's Flat Yak. Again. Would be a shame to break with tradition. All welcome to our season-opening brevet.

This is a low-level course through the Yakima River valley out to an open control 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.

Mt Adams from Toppenish.

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 sufficient opportunities to find food and drink along the route.
