Description: This fast rolling course will take riders through the high desert scenery of eastern Oregon. Junipers, sagebrush, and jack rabbits will be in abundance. Climbs are low angle and fast. Depending on the snow pack and moisture in the spring the roads could be a little sandy. While rolling through this open country riders will be treated to tremendous views of the Cascade Mountain Range from Mt. Hood to the North to Mt. Bachelor in the south. There will be two aid stations on the course to help with refueling.
