Cycle de Vine
The 2019 Chelan Cycle de Vine will again include a trip across the lake. This experience was extremely well received by all riders. Gone is the need to ride out along the north shore or south shore then back into Lake Chelan. The lake crossing will of course be subject to weather conditions. The ride has become a circular tour of the beautiful Lake Chelan Valley. Your ride will begin and end in Don Morse Park in downtown Chelan as always.
The trip across the lake will be either from Manson Bay Park or the Lake Chelan State Park depending on whether you start by riding along the north shore to Manson Bay or the south shore to Lake Chelan State Park.
Volunteers will be at each park with refreshments and will be able to answer any questions. After your scenic ride please report back to Don Morse Park where you be rewarded with a coupon book to enjoy some of Lake Chelan’s finest wineries offering specials. The coupons can be enjoyed after the ride throughout the weekend.
A number of the wineries have excellent restaurants and offer live music on weekends. Riders are encouraged to eat at the wineries and enjoy the music venues. You may even enjoy special discounts as a ride participant.

The Rotary Ride consists of a 3 day fully supported 200 mile ride culminating at a festive Finish Line Party featuring music, food, fun and friends.
The Sunrise Rotary Ride, aka, Jon & Ken's Most Excellent Adventure
Jon and Ken created a 3 day adventure that takes riders from the heart of the wine country in Healdsburg, through the beauty of the Russian River, Sonoma Coast, Bodega Bay, Tomales Bay, to San Francisco, over the Golden Gate Bridge and down the coast to Santa Cruz. No large riding experience is needed, only a love for our beautiful state and a desire to have some fun while supporting youth in our community.
The ride is exceptionally well supported including all food, lodging, medical and sag. You can rest assured that you will be able to enjoy every bit of every day, while you do the ride that you want to do. The route incorporates rolling hills, some optional steeper hills, remote seaside riding and in-town riding. More seasoned riders can find great challenges each day, while entry level riders can build their experience and achieve their personal bests.
Day 1 – We take a bus from Santa Cruz to Healdsburg and set out just before lunch to ride 48 Miles to Bodega Bay. A fabulous lunch is served at Rick Hofstetter's estate on the Russian River. Lodging is at Inn at the Tides in Bodega Bay. A scrumptious spread of hand crafted hors d'oeuvres and beverages are served at cocktail hour around the hot tub followed by dinner at the Tides Wharf Restaurant.
Day 2 – Get an early start (and a delicious breakfast served by our acclaimed team of road chefs) for an 88 mile ride from Bodega Bay to Pacifica. Lunch is served just after you cross the majestic Golden Gate Bridge. We stay at Pacifica Friday night and eat at Nick’s restaurant.
Day 3 – 64 Miles from Pacifica to Santa Cruz, culminating in a finish line party at the Tannery Arts Center where we join up with One Day riders for food, drink, music raffles and auctions.
And best of all, everything is included!
The ride brings together like-minded individuals committed to supporting our youth, and provides a great opportunities for fun and networking. This event is a fundraiser with an all-volunteer crew. 100% of the proceeds go to the charities.
The $450 registration fee covers all rider expenses including transportation to Healdsburg, 2 nights lodging, all meals, snack stops, happy hours, sag and medical support, a commemorative ride T-shirt and admittance to the Finish Line Party.
Riders are required to fundraise an additional $650 (minimum). 100% of which goes to our designated charities. As part of the registration process, you will be guided through the creation of a personal fundraising web page that you can utilize to support your fundraising efforts.

The Ride to End Polio is a bicycling fundraiser hosted by Rotary District 5500 and held each November in Tucson, Arizona, USA, in conjunction with El Tour de Tucson, one of the largest annual bicycling events in the US. El Tour, organized by Perimeter Bicycling Association of America, annually attracts more than 8,000 cyclists. In 2017, 125 Rotarians came from as far as Germany, France and Australia to ride in the event. Cyclists can ride distances ranging from a half-mile fun ride to the full 100 miles and typically collect pledges for each mile ridden. If you can’t make it to Tucson you can participate by riding a stationary bike in your home or gym and collect pledges for the number of minutes you ride. In addition to the ride itself, District 5500 puts on a celebration banquet on the eve of the ride, provides food, drink and massage for Rotarians at the finish line, and staffs the largest aid station on the ride. There are lots of volunteer opportunities for Rotarians, friends and family not riding in the event.
Riders can choose from a variety of distances including: 25, 50, 75 or 100 miles. Those who ride infrequently can choose a ¼ mile or 5 mile Fun Ride. Indoor cyclists can ride up to 90 minutes.
