From spectacular views to challenging climbs, the Yakima Valley has much to offer cycling enthusiasts. Elite riders will enjoy the grades west of Yakima from Eschbach Park to Naches Heights and Lake Wenas. The tough terrain is conquered each April during the Group Health Yakima Ridges Bike Ride.

If you're looking for a less strenuous, but no less breathtaking trip, venture to the Yakima River Canyon, where each May, traffic is restricted while riders of all ages and abilities participate in the Your Canyon for a Day Bike Tour.
Those who wish to blend their passion for cycling with the bounty of the valley can take a ride through orchards and vineyards. The lower Yakima Valley features many wineries that can be toured by bicycle as well as vehicle. Each September, the Wine Country Trek winds from Yakima to Prosser for the Great Prosser Balloon Rally.

MAP-11.jpgAlso explore the Yakima Greenway, 3,600 acres of lush vegetation and a 10-mile paved path that follows the Yakima River and attracts walkers, bicyclists, inline skaters, runners, picnickers and families to its parks, shady nooks, lakes and playgrounds. The protected natural greenbelt includes three parks, two fishing lakes, two rivers and four river access landings.

So what are you waiting for? Plan a trip to Yakima Valley, rent a bike, put a helmet on and go!  Check out a Yakima Valley blog post with three different bicycle itineraries - Short, Medium, Long in ride time.
