This ride attracts thousands of mountain bikers from Seattle and elsewhere each year. The Wenatchee River is a popular whitewater destination and runs right through Cashmere. The river provides challenging rapids for rafters and kayakers each spring during runoff. Several famous rapids occur in the stretch of river that runs through town.
