Rain policy: Heavy rain forecast cancels ride

Join us on a fun ride mostly on gravel.  The gravel roads are in various conditions. The worst part is near the start with big chunky rock down by a swampy area but soon improves. Most of the area has been clear cut so we have spectacular views all the way to the Olympic mountains in the West and the local Cascades to the East. We will take a short break at the end of Wallace Lake where there is a beach and logs to sit on and have a snack. The loop off of Kellogg Lake road travels upon the top of a ridge and in my opinion is the best riding of the day. You may be tired but don't skip this section. The ride ends with a fun fast downhill back to town. 

Bring food and water for the entire route. Spare tube and tire fixings are essential.
