I’ve been there to ride at least four times, and it’s always been memorable, in a good way. The town sits in a picturesque spot beneath golden foothills, with the Elkhorn Ridge of the Blue Mountains on the western horizon, and it has that friendly Westernsmall-town vibe. Plus, both the roads heading southerly out of town are sublime to ride—and this loop lets you cover both. It showcases both the rolling parts of the foothills and the ?at parts of the Powder River Valley, and it’s not a particularly taxing 75-mile ride.
