I ride this loop all the time, and usually just take the scenery for granted. But, with all the pictures posted by others here of their ride I thought I would stop and grab a few photos while I was riding yesterday. The loop itself is just under 11 miles. The path I take on the weekends is a bit over 16 miles, which includes the to/from the house portion. The larger river is the Columbia. The smaller river is the Wenatchee. The city was built, as you may have guessed, at the confluence of those two rivers.
