A classic randonneur ride that goes back to the origins of the sport: about a quarter of the ride is on gravel. The course is incredibly beautiful, heading up the slopes of Klickitat (Mt. Adams), Loowit (Mt. St. Helens) and Tahoma (Mt. Rainier) and taking you all the way to the mighty Columbia River. This is a very challenging course: It’s literally all up- and downhill, with no significant flat parts. It’s also very remote. Plan your trip carefully – supplies are very limited. This is a ride you’ll never forget!
