50 years ago, in 1968, Congress passed the National Trails System Act that protects many of our trails that we enjoy today. Come to Rendezvous to celebrate! The weekend of March 16th – 18th is all about our members and nonmembers coming together to visit old and new friends and to find new places to ride. Come join us at the Kittitas Valley Event Center in Ellensburg. Friday night, we will have a potluck dinner. Bring something to drink and something to share and please join in the fun. Saturday night will be a nice catered dinner that you need to register for. We will have a live auction and music to dance to.
