The bike ride utilizes a local route chosen a day or two before by club members based on weather conditions. In the past, the ride has occurred on the Apple Capital Loop Trail and to Anjou Bakery and back.
Registration for this year’s Yeti will begin at 11 a.m. Jan. 1 at Garlini’s Napoletana restaurant, 212 Fifth St., in Wenatchee. The ride will start at noon and be finished in time for post-event festivities at 3 p.m., also at Garlini’s.
The entry fee is $15. People who are not Velo Club members can ride for free if they join the club that day.
