The event starts at the American Legion in downtown Cascade. It continues down Cabarton Road to West Mtn. Road connecting to Forest Service roads on West Mountain. The route takes riders through breath-taking terrain with views of the Wallowa Mountain range and Indian and Long Valleys. The 76 mile ride option will level out and bring you back along West Mountain Road ending where you started at the American Legion. Along the way you will encounter different road types - pavement, gravel, and Forest Service roads. Both mountain and cross bikes are acceptable modes of transportation for the ride. For those individuals that want to do a shorter distance, there are 35 mile and 57 mile options. Warning! This ride is not for the faint of heart. It is intended for experienced mountain bike riders. There will be 2,000' vertical climbs and 12% grades along the route.
