Cultus Lake/Crane Prairie Loop From Cultus Lake Resort Advanced Beginnner Ride

September 29, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Ready to roll at 10:30 am.

The Cultus Lake/Crane Praire Loop is a beautiful ride around the Cascade Lakes area.
This ride is for advanced beginner or better. A lot of rolling terrain with low traffic volume. The elevation gain is 844 ft and the distance is 26 miles.
This is a fun road bike loop from the Cultus Lake Resort to the Crane Prairie Reservoir and around back to Cultus Lake. We can stop for a break and a snack at the Crane Prairie resort. We will ride at a pace of about 12 mph. The road has little traffic and we should see some lovely fall colors.

We will meet at the fork in the road leading to Cultus Lake itself. Don’t turn into the road to the resort. There is a vehicle pullout and a vault toilet along the road.

Please be sure to RSVP in case there are last minute changes. Rain, smoke, snow, etc. cancels the ride

Bella rides are “no-drop” rides and no one will be left behind. In consideration of others, we ask that you choose a ride that is close to your skill level based on thedescription given of the ride. If you choose to leave the group by going significantly faster or slower, or taking a
different route, you have an obligation to let the leader know. When you leave the group, you are on your own.

The ride is limited to 6 people including myself. No guests are allowed on this ride. You MUST be a current paid Bella member to attend.

You can see the route here:

Make sure you download the route before you get to the start. There is spotty cell phone service on our ride and you cannot RWGPS download the route without cell or wifi. You can also print the map before you leave.
