Route 1: Hillyard > Manito

Route 1 should be advertised as the City Drive Lite. Glimpses of Beacon Hill through Hillyard's old buildings make way for river views over Upriver Drive, dumping you onto post-warehouse Division, through Downtown and up the aptly named Grand Blvd to upper Manito. Spokane in a nutshell, no doubt.

Best non-downtown spot for a drink along the way

: When in doubt, pick the Park Inn.

Next Sunday

: I'm excited to ride Route 14: Fort Wright > East Trent. It's a flat, straight shot on some of Spokane's fastest roads.
