UPDATE: The following has been passed on regarding the Cle Elum Rails to Ales festival.

Two shuttles will be running continuously during the event. They will service the event parking areas (CMA Lot, Memorial Park Ballfields Lot, “The Wye” Lot - across from the Chamber of Commerce office), and all of the Cle Elum Lodging Partners every half hour, beginning at 3:30 p.m. There will be a stop at the Roslyn Library every hour on the 45’s (i.e. 3:45, 4:45, etc.) Additional parking is available.

     In Seattle the sun is temporarily obscured by a thick mask of clouds and more than likely you need to get out of the house. If you are like me you are watching the Tour de France LIVE or a previously recorded iteration from your DVR (eg, Tivo) and after that you probably need an excuse to go ride or at a minimum take a walk.

     Listed below are some events that are upcoming this week. Course if you are one of those lucky enough to live along the Oregon / Washington border, you can always hop the Columbia River into Oregon for some Oregon Beer Month events. Both the events listed below and the previously mentioned Oregon Beer Month events are also listed to the left.

Cheers
