Leavenworth Cruise

Leavenworth Cruise Professional Review and Guide

"This ride is an exhilarating ride through gorgeous Cascade Mountain valleys. The scenery alone will take your breath away, and the route includes a steady climb and a hairpin descent. Leavenworth is a Bavarian "theme" town with buildings decorated with gingerbread trim, store clerks wearing costumes, and numerous boutiques selling overpriced knickknacks.

The town is surrounded by beautiful snowcapped mountains, forests, and orchards. The incredibly clean air and water are rejuvenating. Terrain: a steady but easy climb during the first quarter of the ride, level or descents from there on."

The loop is well designed in terms of terrain and prevailing winds. Uphill is gradual, downhill seems extended. Nice tailwind on the last leg. Not as scenic as one would expect given the overall setting. Country roads are well populated, homes and farms aren't exactly charming, and there is constant traffic--no shortage of trucks. The last 18 miles on Hwy 2 is pretty unpleasant. The road has been resurfaced and the shoulders vary in width randomly, from almost none to generous and there is an asphalt seam running down the white line that makes the narrow sections of shoulder a little sketchy, especially when being passed by the many large trucks and RVs. This last leg follows the river and is quite lovely but it is not very pleasant to ride.
