Route Dev: Recon in Winthrop WA

Winthrop, Washington is pretty far from Portland Oregon. Located at the base of the North Cascades it’s a proper six hour car drive, but well worth it. There is a massive outdoor culture up there with biking, hiking and more outdoor stuff than you can shake a stick at. We headed up there to scope some routes for an upcoming Rapha event that Ron had architected the gravel road routes for. Post ride foodie word – stay away from the burritos in Winthrop, they are hella expensive and pretty much naff.

Details: Multi day rides from Winthrop WA, features NF37 / Baldy Pass, NF42, Elbow Coulee Rd and Balky Hill. Thanks to Ron @ for dialling up some great days.
