Walla Walla GRIT 95
“Walla Walla is famous for its renowned road riding, but the locals have been venturing into the Blue Mountains for years to get their fix of first class gravel roads. This course (the 95) and its partner courses (the 45 and 65) stay together for the first 24 miles, which includes the iconic,and challenging, Cottonwood Creek climb.”
“All three courses have steep sections some might walk up without proper gearing. Courses are designed for experienced cyclists and are not for the faint of heart! For this course, the 95, we think 50mm is the right tire choice. Miles 45 to 82 is rough and the Tiger Canyon descent has legit pinch flat material (both washboard and big-ish rocks), plus this is definitely goat-head territory. A tubeless wheel / tire set up is highly recommended.” By Alegro Cyclery.
The Dirty Freehub Team has not ridden this course, thus, the designation as Training Route. If you give it a go, leave us a comment below.
