Day 7 – September 19: LaGrande to Baker City
“The Big Finish” 59 miles
Last night’s festivities have you moving slowly? Relax and enjoy the ride. We’re in no hurry and the hills are behind us. Say goodbye to La Grande as we head toward the historic town of Union. After a gentle climb, we’ll pass through North Powder and then bask in the foothills of the Elkhorn Mountains for 20 miles before we make our final approach. We’ll wind down the back roads of Baker County past the locals waving eagerly from their front porches. A finish line celebration awaits at Tour’s End, put on by Baker City’s natives. Wave and smile, warriors. It’s officially time to bask in the glory.
