Mellow start with breath taking views from the Rowena Loops, followed by killer landscapes from the Eagle Caves overlooking The Dalles, Columbia and Washington range, then the kicker backed by a solid 4mile 1500ft gravel climb with ribbons of sweet flowing pea gravel gravel decent back to the finish.
