Welcome to the Chelan Century Challenge Ride website. This beautiful ride through the Chelan, Valley has grown over 30% in each of the last 2 years. We expect to host 511 riders in 2011.
Ride Date:Saturday, June 25, 2011 Location: Chelan, WA (Don Morse Park)
The Chelan Century Challenge consists of three (3) loops, each between 30 to 40 miles in length, combining challenging hills with captivating scenery. Each loop has an elevation gain of more than 2,500 feet with all three loops totaling 8,606 feet of elevation gain. Riders are encouraged to complete all three loops in sequence, but are free to ride only the first loop or the first and second loop if they wish. The ride passes through orchards and vineyards into the mountainous terrain surrounding Lake Chelan; one of the world’s most spectacular glacial carved lakes with some of Washington State’s most impressive scenery. Each loop and McNeil Canyon will be timed but this is not a race. Just strive for a personal best.
