Planning your ride

Before you travel the Pacific Northwest it is important to do some homework.

You may think that it’s a simple ride and an easy destination to discover, however there are so many different geographic regions that you may be surprised to find yourself traveling through sunny orchards one afternoon only to be swamped by the coastal ‘rain forest’ the same night.  Some diligent preparation is a must in this region.

Knowing a little about your route and the season you choose for travel will help you to bring the essentials along for the ride.
