Fruit Loop ride -full details (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ExchangeCycleTours/message/764)

What is better than heirloom apples, fresh cider, farm animals, local wine, and country scenery in the crisp autumn air? How about seeing (and tasting) it all from the seat of a bicycle? ECT is planning our 2nd annual celebration of fall with a bicycle ride around Hood
River's Fruit Loop. This is a 35 mile loop to apple orchards, country stores, and local wineries.

We will be making frequent stops along the way for treats and for the group to reconvene.
Be sure to bring something to carry all the goodies you'll find along the way.

This ride is an advanced beginner/intermediate. There is some moderate climbing. The pace is not going to be challenging but please be able to ride 35 miles with a
couple of hills. No rider left behind.
