Beloved for the rural farm roads that meander through rolling wheat fields, Walla Walla is celebrated as Washington’s top road cycling destination. The nearby Blue Mountains offer experienced riders steep climbs and sharp turns to attack, while the flatlands and paved trails that run through Walla Walla’s historic neighborhoods and farmlands are perfect for when you just want to cruise.
Hailstone Cycling Group – Group rides are moderately paced in the 15 to 17 mph average range. From spring to about the end of October they meet at 7:30 am every Saturday at the Rose Garden at Pioneer Park (corner of Division St. and Whitman St.). About the first part of November, they meet at 8:00 am. The group averages about 15 cyclists but some rides are up to 25 or more. Cyclists who can sustain “blue” rides of 30 miles and have pace line experience will find themselves comfortable riding with this group. The group has no formal organization and is a “pick up” ride format. For more information contact Jon Bren: firstname.lastname@example.org
