If Steve is calling it a great road, I'd say the tarmac is pretty nice.

The tarmac is usually pretty good although there sometimes is some gravel early in the year. Its a narrow 2 lane road with lots of 20-25 mph curves (without guard rails) and you really do not want to overshoot any of the blind left hand corners because it is a long ways to the bottom of the hill.

So... to make a run towards Kennewick on Thursday evening and ride over with a group, or to run down to Hood River, and spend Friday running through Condon, Heppner, Ukiah, and Enterprise... Decisions, decisions.

I've traveled those roads in the past and they were pretty good (I was in a VW Bus)...someone said recently in another posting that Hwy.3 wasn't in such good shape...I don't know if that's true or not...anybody know?

I haven't been on it this year but it was in good shape last year although it does often have some light gravel in some of the corners as you approach the state line.

Of course it's not going to be in good shape right now. It's winter time. There will be lots of gravel and sand from the D.O.T trucks. Other than that and taking a chance getting caught in a snow storm, the pavement it self is in great shape especially on the Washington side of Rattlesnake Grade. By the time we do this ride, it should be all cleaned up.
