Apple Century Bike Ride Race Description
The Apple Century Bike Ride is fully supported recreational ride with water/food stations and sag wagons with 3 distance options available - 100, 50, and 25 mile routes.
We will start in Wenatchee at Walla Walla Point Park, Shelter 2, (1351 Walla Walla Avenue, Wenatchee WA 98801) then follow along the scenic Wenatchee River as it winds through Monitor, Cashmere, Dryden and Peshastin until you reach Leavenworth. The 100-milers will continue on, to the Lake Wenatchee Fire Station where they will turn around for the trip back to Wenatchee. Scenery includes high sage desert, lush orchards and vineyards, cool and clear river valleys, and tall ponderosa pine forests.
Registration fees help support our Challenge Scholarship Program, focusing on at-risk high school students. Our club, while working with school counselors, identify 10th grade students that are at risk of not graduation high school. After the selection process up to 8 students are paired with mentors (club members) for a two-year period. During the two-year period club members help keep the students on track to graduate, with the possibility of 2 students being awarded a $10,000 scholarship each to the college or trade school of their choice. www.wenatcheesunriserotary.org
