Very fast, very straight. This course is sure to accommodate a top speed performance. The timer starts on the west end of Market Lane and travels about 4 miles to a bend in the road that takes riders past the historic Lower Cove School location and then across a bridge over the Grande Ronde River. The turnaround is at caution signs that flank the road. The east/west nature of the road helps negate the effects of the notorious south and north winds of the Grande Ronde Valley.
