The First Annual Tour de Tieton a Success

IMG_0263.jpg

Tour de Tieton bike ride on July 7 was a success, and we want to thank all our riders and sponsors! We had 227 riders from as far away as Pittsburgh, Colorado, California, Utah, and Boise. Most were from the Yakima Valley, but we were impressed how widespread the participation was. Our youngest rider was 11, who rode 25 miles. Our oldest was 79, and he rode 50 miles. The registrants were nearly 50/50 male/female, which is impressive for an event like this.

The weather was perfect, the route was beautiful and well planned, and the many local volunteers did a great job. Our second Tour de Tieton planning is already in the works for 2019. We expect this event to be even bigger and better next year, so stay tuned.

A huge thank you to our sponsors, Varietal Beer CompanyTieton Cider Works, and Cowiche Creek Brewing Company, who supplied riders with the much-deserved end to their 25 and 50 mile rides.
