Hundreds Bike Through Yakima Canyon

Posted: Updated:

SELAH--Hundreds of cyclists took advantage of today's great weather.  This is the hottest it's been since they started the annual canyon ride 7 years ago.

"We're going through a lot more ice and water, but everything else is working real smooth," Peterson said.  "We have a great staff and a lot of support people out there on both sides and really no major glitches."

Peterson said riders get to enjoy the bike ride because there's little car traffic on the 35-mile route from Selah to Ellensburg.

About 1100 people made the canyon ride today.
