Rides for 2016: The Lapwai Loop ride of 50 miles has been redirected west of Clarkston to Wawawai Canyon on the Snake. This is an out-and-back of 53+ miles.
Half-Century: Wawawai Landing
Avoid the ridges! Enjoy the Rivers. This year’s 50 miler stays flat on an out-and-back course to Wawawai Landing. No you can’t see the dam or ride to it, but you will be close. WSU Crew use this landing to store their sculls and riders are often treated to a morning practice session. The course has no climbs save that to Red Wolf Bridge, but you’ll find it challenging never-the-less. Nearly always a wind in hte canyon. Could we get a tail-wind out and then enjoy the wind switching to be at our backs on the return? Well, yes. It could happen.
This one’s flat. A century without the ridges for 2017.
Watch for updates as we lock down the turn around beyond Buffalo Eddy.
We’ll start as usual at the Port but ride south on the Green Belt trail through Asotin and south past historical Buffalo Eddy. After a break, we will back-track to the Port where we will be joned by 50 mile riders heading across Redwolf to Wawawai Landing. The rie finishes back at the Port. Toughest hill? The on ramps for Red Wolf Bridge.
