We decided to get out of town early today to beat the traffic coming into town on the weekend. The sun was barely peaking over the mountains.
It started out a little cool, temps in the 50’s, but by the time we reached our first stop it had warmed nicely and we were ready to shed clothing.
We were lucky today, as we turned toward Chelan there was a sign that said there was a bike race today and suggested an alternate route. The road was not closed but traffic was way down.
We later found out, there was a triathlon going on in Chelan. The traffic was a mess in town for cars but we were able to get through with no trouble. Chelan is a pretty town, very tourist oriented.
Joe and Vern decided they needed to ride more today. I joined them and we headed out of town in another direction for some extra miles. We rode out a road that was lined by cherry and apple fields. We thought about stopping to pick the fruit but decided it we could out run a truck if we got chased. The terrain beyond the orchards was also very nice.
