BISHOP - ROUND VALLEY
The Round Valley in Bishop is essentially your main "connector" route with lots of other routes in Bishop. It is also a great ride on its own if you are looking for a flatter ride.
The great thing about this ride is that you can take it slow and catch up with friends or treat it like an all out time trial and punish yourself. There are very few cars and in our experience the people driving on this road are locals and have been very accommodating to riders.
This is an all year ride, you might have to start early in the summer due to heat.
