Another option for a north ride

View Larger Map

My dad and step-mother live up on the Kettle River. It's fun to ride up there and there's lots of routes. For a quick version, it's an easy century ride straight up 395. Another route I've done a couple times is to go up to Springdale via Tum Tum, go west over the little pass to Hunters, then go north on the west side of the Columbia. That's a great day ride.

There's a lot of mountain and dirt road just north of Spokane/Deer Park in the corridor between 395 and the Hiway's 2/211/20 route. I think I'm going to focus on that area this year. The route above is sort of an intro route that ends up at my dad's place.

I love having relatives 300k away on the other side of the Adirondack Park. Keeps my imagination running for ways to get there - both long and short.

Sounds like a fun trip coming up for you...

Yeah, that puny "little pass" to Hunters. :-) That's a beautiful ride, though.

There are a lot of fairly undiscovered bike routes that direction and west of there. That's the problem of living someplace with so many great places to ride.
