7:30am 50 mile ride route opens
8:30am 25 mile ride route opens
10:30-2:30 Finish Line Party!
Both routes are on quiet country roads through fruit orchard country. The 25 mile route includes a few mild climbs with some great scenic descents and plenty of variety. One rest station with snacks, fresh fruit, and beverages.
The 50 mile route is more challenging, but nothing overly heroic. Early on, riders take a dramatic descent toward Naches and then a long flat skirting the base of Naches Heights. A sturdy climb up Schuler Grade connects with Naches Heights Road and a great ride around the Highland area. Lots of variety and good views. One more steady climb and then a quick drop levels out for the last few miles. Two rest stations with snacks, fresh fruit, and beverages.
For our participants who are coming a long way and would like to make a weekend of it, we have some camping options to make the decision to come easier and more attractive. El Nido Cabins (elnidotieton.com) will offer camping spots this year. Contact them directly for a reservation.
When you arrive follow the signs to free lot parking. Plenty of street parking is also available.
Tieton weather in mid-June can range from mild to hot, so check the weather report and dress accordingly. Sunscreen is a must.
