Echo Valley Rally
May 18, 2013
Another great weekend of racing at the Echo Valley Rally Presented by Vin du Lac! The course was long with lots of climbing, but riders were rewarded with rippin fast downhills and breathtaking views aplenty (that must be why I was gasping for air the whole time!) Can’t wait for Bike and Brews in two weeks! Remember B&B is pre-registration only, be sure to sign up early.
Update 5-15: The course will be marked and ready for your pre-riding pleasure Friday afternoon. I’d like to invite everyone to the Vin du Lac Bistro Friday evening where we’ll be sipping wine and enjoying a dinner special just for us. $20 gets you all you can eat with a couple sides, desert, and complimentary wine tasting. We’ll also have packet pick up/early registration going.
Round 4 of the Fat Tire Revolution series is over looking beautiful Lake Chelan, more specifically, the Echo Valley ski bowl. You can expect fast flowy trails with fantastic views! This is the best time of year to be in Chelan, no crowds and great weather, come spend the weekend with us.
We are thrilled to have The Echo Valley Rally presented by Vin du Lac Winery! We’ll have early registration/packet pick-up available Friday evening at Vin du Lac from 6-8pm. They’ll also be providing an all you can eat special buffet spread plus a bit of complimentary wine tasting just for us Friday evening from 5-8 pm at their Bistro. We’ll be raffling some of their vintages at the race too!
We will also be offering registration and packet pick up at Vin du Lac Friday evening from 5-7 pm. We encourage pre-registration, but will have day of available starting at 8:00 am. You must be registered 30 minutes before the start of your race.
