The 2019 Blazing Saddles bike ride kicks off on Saturday morning, August 3. It will be held in conjunction with the annual weekend Colville Rendezvous Community Celebration in the City Park. 2019 will be a rerun of the of the NORTH COLUMBIA RIDE, the Blazing Saddles’ original route and most popular. The 100 milers will head north on the beautiful Northport-Flat Creek road along the northwest shore of Lake Roosevelt to the bridge at Northport, and then return along the lake. Cycling does not get any more spectacular than this ride.
-The metric century riders head to the Onion Creek hills, and return along the lake.
-The 40 milers take the “Evans cut off” directly to the lake and return via the same world class scenery as the others.
-The 18-mile family ride around Colville Mountain departs at 10AM. Day of ride sign-up is allowed.
Start and finish all routes at the southwest corner of the City Park, located at the corner of Hawthorne St. and Elm Ave. Each registrant receives a goodie bag that includes a t-shirt. The finish line features great post ride food, but you will also want to explore everything that the Rendezvous Celebration has to offer. For more info go to blazing100.org.
