It was 25 years ago when the first Tour de Peaks bike ride got rolling. Today, Tour de Peaks has evolved and has become a staple Valley event, drawing riders from far and near.

The Snoqualmie Valley Hospital Tour de Peaks offers riders a unique opportunity to enjoy the splendors of the Snoqualmie Valley on one of the nicest weekends of the year.

Three rides are supported: a century ride of 100 miles covering the entire Valley, North Bend to Duvall; a 50-mile ride on mostly country roads, North Bend to Carnation (includes the Falls hill); and a 25-mile through the upper Snoqualmie Valley. Afterward, enjoy the Festival at Mount Si with a plenty of food, a beer garden, a chili cook-off, and the famous Duck Derby. In honor of Tour de Peaks’ 25th anniversary, the Snoqualmie Valley Velo Club offers a limited edition jersey.

Sponsors, volunteers, and bicycle riders are all being sought for the 25th anniversary event. To get involved, call Angela Donaldson at (425) 770-8355, call (425) 888-6362, e-mail to info@tourdepeaks.org or visit www.tourdepeaks.org.
