Summer's winding down, but Central Washington Bike Nights is still running full throttle. With three more rides to go, we're logging all the miles we can before it starts turning  chilly again.

And this week, we plan to log a LOTTA miles -- we're taking the high road back to The Old #3 Restaurant & Sports Bar, 8381 State Route 903 in Ronald. It's a beautiful ride, and the destination is well worth the trip. The food is outstanding, and the staff is always friendly.

As usual, we'll have a saddlebag full of prizes, thanks to Owens Cycle Inc. and Pepsi. -- and we'll be awarding certificates for Best Custom, Best Metric and the People's Choice.

The fun runs from 6-8 p.m., and it's always free.

Two more stops before we call it a year:

  • Aug. 21 -- Jack-sons Sports Bar, 432 S. 48th Ave., Yakima
  • Aug. 28 (Grand prize giveaway night) -- The Old Town Pump Saloon, 3716 Main St., Union Gap
