Ride Description: 

Come join us for our springtime trip to beautiful Walla Walla. The fields will be starting to grow and scenery shall be a site to see. We have coupled this weekend with the annual Balloon Stampede in which private owners from all around the country come to bring their hot air balloons for lift off. It's truely interesting to watch.

This ride is part of a three day series (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). We welcome you to join us for one, two or all three rides! 

This post is for the Moderate pace (14-16 mph on the flats). Other pace offered are steady (12-14 on flats), brisk (16-18 on flats), and strenuous (19-21 on flats).

Moderate Ride Leaders: Jenny Anderson, Dorothe Reijnders, Matt Wong

These rides are not supported. We will provide short rest stops along the route, but please come prepared with your own food and beverages. Hotel accommodations are to be handled by riders individually as needed. Please email the Ride Director with any questions/concerns.

As customary for all Cascade rides, please make sure you wear a helmet and have necessary gear and knowledge to fix any flats you might get along the way. The group will not stop for flats or mechanicals, but our sweeps will ensure you have a cue sheet to continue the ride. 

We will also have events planned each day. They will be posted on Meetup as plans are finalized.
