WASHCO Ride of the Month: December 2013 Chainrings


Each month in CHAINRINGS, Sunset Cycles previews another great Washington County bike ride. With the varied terrain available in our area, each ride is certain to be a winner.

Our ride rating category is simple, ranging from one CHAINRING (easiest) to five CHAINRINGS (most challenging). Here’s the criteria:

One chainring: Flat ride, minimal climbing
Two chainrings: Rolling hills, short climbs
Three chainrings: Moderate hills, possibly some short, steep climbs
Four chainrings: Challenging terrain with numerous, longer climbs
Five chainrings: Very difficult terrain with numerous, steep, long climbs

This month’s ride: Tour de Tannenbaum

RATING:  3.5 CHAINRINGS

XMAS TREE FARMS

An early ride climb gives way to rolling terrain over this pleasant 22-miler that winds past numerous local Christmas tree farms. Beware of the Subaru’ed masses hauling their goods, especially on weekends!
