Spokane Valley Cycle Celebration coming July 26
On Sunday, July 26, explore and cycle Spokane Valley on your choice of a scenic 10-mile, 25-mile, or 50-mile bike ride. These road adventures are an annual community event and a way to experience the beauty of the nature area. The annual event is presented by Valleyfest and all proceeds benefit the Valleyfest Children's Foundation, which provides small grants to enrich the lives of students interested in pursuing an activity in arts, culture, science, sports, or math.
All rides begin and end at the North Centennial Trailhead across from Mirabeau Point Park. You must register by Sunday, July 12 to receive a t-shirt. If the Health District determines that the event needs to be cancelled, a decision will be made by Monday, July 13. The safety of riders, volunteers and sponsors is important and Cycle Celebration organizers will follow all the guidelines recommended by the Spokane County Health District to be socially responsible while ensuring you have a good time.
