*** Pre-Drive Update ***
Some snow remaining up in the hills and still a bit chilly on the summits but all roads and shoulders clear and dry.
By popular demand, our 300 this spring is, once again, the quiet and scenic Hermiston-Pendleton-Hermiston-Pendleton-Hermiston route. The original description for this route is still valid. Please follow that link, read and digest if you're planning on joining us for this ride.
This early in the season there's a small risk that there will be snow or ice on the high parts of this route. We'll be watching the weather and might cancel or reschedule if it's looking very sketchy. Whatever the weather, it'll be a few degrees colder up in the hills than at the start/finish, so you'll be wise to bring an extra layer or two.
