Yeti Ride is on

WENATCHEE — The Wenatchee Valley Velo Club will again hold its annual Yeti Ride on New Year’s Day. VeloYetiRide2

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.

WENATCHEE — Six years after its apparent end, the Ridge to River Relay is returning next spring with a new focus and format.

But instead of a course with connecting legs, the new course will feature legs that are separated yet chip-timed. Read More

LEAVENWORTH — The Leavenworth Winter Sports Club is saying goodbye to one Nordic ski trek and giving rise to another.

The Moose Dewlap Citizens Trek will take place Feb. 21, 2015, in the Meadows Creek Loop area near Lake Wenatchee. The 41-kilometer route will start and end at the Lake Wenatchee Recreation Club.

That same weekend in February has traditionally been reserved for the long-running Hog Loppet ski trek from Mission Ridge to Blewett Pass. Read More
