This ride is for those who don’t like hills. There is one very small climb leaving Ferndale as you head out through the scenic Eel River Valley. A rest stop awaits at the turnaround on Price Creek Road. One-speed bikes not recommended for this ride.

This ride goes out ten miles to the Turnaround Aid Station and returns to the Fairgrounds by the same route.
