KATS' annual Central Washington Bike Nights kicked off with a bang Wednesday (May 1) night at Bron Yr Aur Brewery in Naches. We counted 149 bikes out there!

We also kicked off our first scavenger hunt on the KATS app -- congrats to Gazoo Rubble (wait, is that his real name?)  for completing all the challenges and picking up a pair of tickets to see Shinedown at the ShoWare Center in Kent this July 26! (Is he related to Barney Rubble? Whatever ...)

Anyway, here's a taste of what it looked like up Highway 12 ...
