Day 5

Colville local roads

sunny 82 °F

266 Miles today. Since we were unable to go to Canada, plan B kicked in and we rode a bunch of fantastic roads around here. We rode Aladdin Rd up to Northport, then circled around Onion Creek to Douglas Falls Rd. back into Colville. This was great loop, although the first 3 miles or so were gravel due to construction, the rest of the roads were terrific.

From here we did Flowery Trail Rd From Chewelah all the way until we hit the chip seal section, then turned around and rode it back. We stopped at McDonald's for lunch because it was there and available.

From Chewela we rode down to Springdale then west to Hunters. Up northeast on Cedonia-Addy Rd, the west again on Addy-Gifford Rd. We took a short break here, for a drink, a pee and a snack.

After our short break we rode north to Rice, took Orin-Rice east to 395, then a short counter clockwise loop on Old Arden Rd to 20 and back into Colville for the end of the ride. I did get separated from the group at the last turn because I stopped to take a picture and Jim missed the turn according the route we discussed at the rest break, I guess I should have just waited to be found, but we were close and everyone knew where we were supposed to be within the next half hour so I finished the ride alone and met everyone in town. Oh well, it all worked out.
