Sponsored by the Colville Rotary Club, the Blazing Saddles Bike Ride will be on August 5, 2017. It will be held in conjunction with the annual weekend Colville Rendezvous Community Celebration at the City Park. After the ride, enjoy all the festivities of Colville’s biggest annual festival, including food booths, vendors, and displays of the regions history and heritage. There will be live bands and performances on two separate stages into the night, with a beer garden open throughout the day and into the evening. Ride, and then Celebrate.
The 2017 bike loop routes are all new. The 45 mile Colville Loop is the “signature” road cycling loop of this world class cycling area. The 68 Mile and 100 mile rides both offer a steady early morning climb over the Orin-Rice summit and then a decent down to the cool lake shore of Lake Roosevelt where after 25 miles the rides split. The 100 mile ride heads south and crosses the lake on a free ferry and returns on the west shore of the lake. The 68 mile ride heads north on the east shore of the lake. Both rides meet up in Kettle Falls and finish by way of the north half of the Colville Loop.
