The Apple Century Bike Ride is fully supported recreational ride with water/food stations and sag wagons. We will start in Wenatchee at Pybus Public Market, 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 Staton where they will turn around for the trip back to Pybus Public Market. Scenery includes high sage desert, lush orchards and vineyards, cool and clear river valleys, and tall ponderosa pine forests.
On-site registration and pre-registration ride packet pick-up will be available on Friday afternoon, May 31st at Cycle Central in Downtown Wenatchee, and Saturday, June 1st prior to the start at Pybus Public Market.
Pre-registered riders will recieve a commemorative pint glass from Wenatchee Valley Brewing Company featuring our ACBR logo, as well as have the opportunity to purchase a custom ride jersey. Online jersey sales have closed, however, you can still purchase jerseys on the day of the ride. Cost will be $75. Sizing will be unisex, and while we will have a limited quantity on hand for purchase and immediate pickup, any orders beyond that inventory will be shipped to the purchaser.
Proceeds from our ride help support our Challenge Scholarship Program, focusing on at-risk high school students. We challenge these students to finish and graduate high school with the incentive of a two-year scholarship to the college or trade school of their choosing. We also fund several local projects such as Rotary Park, our elementary school Passport Club, and Shelter Box program to name a few. www.wenatcheesunriserotary.org
