Day 5 – September 17: Wallowa Lake to Enterprise Option
“Freedom Rings” 44 miles
Air out the Lycra a little longer, there’s no need to move your tent today. Just kick off your cleats and stay for a while in the beautiful Wallowa Valley. If you’re eager for another day of riding, mount your bike and head out across the valley floor to Enterprise for lunch. It’s an easy day to just spin out the legs after yesterday’s epic climb. If your legs are screaming “uncle”, take a seat and ride the gondola to the summit of Mount Howard. Hike the afternoon away. Stroll. Swim, you decide. Visit the art galleries of Joseph or their world-renown bronze foundries. Then rest up, the open road is calling you back.
