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.
