WENATCHEE — The Entiat Valley is the destination for the June 5 Apple Century Bike Ride.
The 23rd-annual event is expected to attract hundreds of bicyclists from all over the Northwest for 50-mile and 100-mile rides beginning and ending in Wenatchee.
The rides, hosted by the Wenatchee Sunrise Rotary, start at 8 a.m. at Walla Walla Point Park. From there, cyclists head north along the edge of Highway 97A before turning west on Entiat Valley Road. Half-century riders turn around at the Fish Hatchery. Century riders proceed to the Silver Falls Campground. Riders also are welcome to take in the 1.4 mile loop hike to the falls before returning to Walla Walla Point Park.
The cost of the ride is $55 per person until May 29 and $65 after that. The cost includes a finish-line barbecue, pit-stop snacks and a t-shirt. Pit stops are located approximately every 25 miles and sag wagons follow the route to watch for riders who need assistance.
