Tour de Peaks ride is approaching the quarter-century mark
August 8, 2012
Summer, such as it is in the Valley, would not be summer without the Tour de Peaks.
Founded in 1988 to commemorate Snoqualmie’s 100th anniversary, the ride enters its 24th year Aug. 12, with its usual variety of trips: a 25-miler, 50-miler and 100-miler.
The 25-miler gives a close-up view of Mount Si. The 50-miler visits the country roads, including Carnation. The 100-miler tours the entire Valley, including Duvall.
Individual registration is $35 per person. Written parental permission is required for riders younger than 18. Participants must remember that Tour de Peaks is not a race.
Register online at www.tourdepeaks.org, or in person the day of the ride. Organizers will accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
Check-in and registration occurs from 7-8 a.m. for the 100-miler, 8-9:30 a.m. for the 50-miler and 8:30-10 a.m. for the 25-miler.
