Following the success of prior years the 2019 Chelan Cycle de Vine will again include a trip across the lake. This experience was extremely well received by all riders. Gone is the need to ride out along the north shore or south shore then back into Lake Chelan. The lake crossing will of course be subject to weather conditions. The ride has become a circular tour of the beautiful Lake Chelan Valley. Your ride will begin and end in at Vin du Lac winery.
The trip across the lake will be from Manson Bay Park to the Lake Chelan State Park on the south shore.
Volunteers will be at both parks for snacks and beverages and will be giving out valuable coupon books from local Chelan wineries to participating riders. The coupons can be enjoyed after the ride, throughout the weekend and some have longer expiration dates to entice you to return and enjoy all the Chelan has to offer. New this year is a poker run, so riders will obtain playing cards at participating wineries and create the best poker hand for potential prizes.
A number of the wineries have excellent restaurants and offer live music on weekends. Riders are encouraged to eat at the wineries and enjoy the music venues. You may even enjoy special discounts as a ride participant.
