Topping out in the Wauconda recreation
area of Mid-eastern Washington, and specifically at the 100 year
old, now mostly defunct, mining town of the same name, this ride
does some justice to my view that a good bike ride is as much
about the esthetics of the ride as it is about anything else.
The Southern Okanagan and Similkimeen orchards, the cottage and
ranch country of the Okanogan area around Tonasket, the above
noted Wauconda area, the ranch and lake country around Chesaw,
as well as every meter of the 2,650+ meters of climbing, are
all visited on this tour. Well worth the considerable effort,
but mind your starting time, the border crossing at Nighthawk,
69k in, doesn't open 'till 9AM.
