July 17 is the last day of Wheels North. We will hold several events in the morning, then start heading home ... or to whatever adventure is next.

Wheels North! will follow the same route as much as possible, staying where possible on rural roads (but avoiding the railroad trestles and tunnels the original riders sometimes used).  Our end point for the ride is Drumheller Fountain on the campus of the University of Washington.
