A route that is close in to central Bend, short in distance, and has good variety to work technical skills. A go to route when time is limited. It is a favorite of one of our riding partners, CP.
We have classified this route as a Bandit Route in that it is a encompasses parts of several other 5 Star Routes but adds in a bit of new terrain. We have ridden it a number of times.
