Fall is fast approaching and the some of the best weather of the year for cycling is coming with it. September and October are our favorite time to get out and peddle. Firstly the temperatures are mild typically in the 70's and 80's for highs making it just right for going out without heat or cold worries. Secondly fall has far less wind than the spring here in the Columbia Basin making it a great time to set PR's on your favorite routes. Thirdly fall in the desert is a beautiful and the acitivty from all the big farms in our area help create spectacular sunsets followed by the harvest moon which falls in the center of this micro season. Scott's Cycle and Sports Kennewick has a lot going on during the next 4-6 weeks including what we are calling Strong Dollar Savings and select models, Superfuntime MTB Party which is a weekend of camping and mountain biking is the Blue Mountains and the continuation of Saturday morning road rides and the start of the Chinook Mountainbike Training Series which our shop is ride number 3 shop sponsor.
