Ronde van Palouse (tour of the palouse) is a road race held in the spirit of the Spring Classics. The course consists of a 23-mile circuit in the farm country near Spangle, Washington. The roads have good pavement with the exception of four miles of graded gravel road. The constant rollers and the nearly constant wind of the palouse make this a challenging circuit that favors the strongest all-around riders. See spokanerocketvelo.com for more info.
