The Ann Ride leaves Walla Walla’s beautiful Pioneer Park heading north past golden, rolling wheat fields and the emerald velvet of alfalfa awaiting first harvest leading to L’Ecole no. 41, one of about 140 wineries in the valley. Riders then head southeast into Oregon, past hundreds of wind turbines looming over some of the region’s finest apple, pear and cherry orchards. The loop east points riders in the direction of the Blue Mountains, a magnificent view to be enjoyed for the remainder of the ride. Back to Walla Walla; then riders veer 15 miles uphill into a forested canyon as they take in the 100 mile final leg-burning stage before looping downhill back to Pioneer Park and heaping servings of spaghetti and meatballs and locally brewed Laht Neppur beer.

    Wondering about the general course on Sunday for the 4000 in 50 Century. I’d like to know to determine if I’ll stay around for another day. Thanks

      Hi Bob. Best way to get a sense of the route is to go the map. On the toolbar of our website, go to Riding. Click Maps & Cue Sheets; then open Walla Walla Valley Bicycle Map. In the lower right corner look for block 11. That is the 4000 in 50 ride to the Tollgate area. That shows elevation. Then look left for the magenta route with 11 on it. But the ride leaves from Walla Walla, and one of the two green routes (ride leader decides) takes riders to Milton-Freewater, then connects to route 11. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again. And thank you for coming out for the Ann Weatherill ride.

    I want to thank Andy and crew for a fun and adventurous century ride this past weekend. Well done all! It will certainly be a topic of discussion with my friends and teammates.

      Eric! Let the UBC know that this years Ann Ride registration is open. I have joined the Wheatland Wheeler board and look forward to riding with the old team mates! Also I may be able to get some homestays for anybody on the UBC that is participating in the Tour of Walla Walla. Hope all is well in Seattle!

  1. […] old. I’m not sure I want to do more laps ’cause it’s starting to feel like the Ann Weatherill century+ ride that I did in Walla Walla last Saturday. Not only were my legs blown, my motivation was sapped […]
