Apple Century Bike Ride
Enjoy the scenic beauty of the Wenatchee Valley and help us help others in need! Come see why we are the "Apple Capital of the World."
The 2013 ride will take place on Saturday, June 1. Due to popular demand the route again this year will start at Walla Walla Point Park in Wenatchee and will travel west by northwest through the towns of Monitor, Cashmere, Leavenworth, and Plain with the 50 mile turn point in the Lake Wenatchee area. Pit stops will be placed at various point along the route, with water stops strategically placed for rider safety.
At the conclusion of the ride participants will be treated to a meal, beer garden with numerous alcoholic beverages available for purchase, and other amenities.
Along with the spectacular views of the majestic Cascade Mountains, you'll be subjected to contrasting colors of the rolling hillsides and various fruit orchards along the way. Regardless of whether you choose to do a 25 mile or 50 mile trek, or embark on the entire 100 or century ride we know you'll enjoy the sights of the cherries, apples, pears, or grapes orchards, or the sounds of the rapids along the Wenatchee River. As you bask in the sun you'll soon discover why the Wenatchee Valley is considered one of the most popular destination spots in the northwest. As proud Rotarians we look forward to hosting you at the 2013 Apple Century Bike Ride.
