The sixth annual Ballard County Wheels and Wings bike ride will be held May 28, beginning at 8 a.m. at Ballard County Preschool. In a continuing effort to get more beginners and families interested in bicycling, organizers have planned another free 5-mile family ride this year, in addition to the 15-, 30- and 60-mile paid routes. If riders want a shirt, or the early registration discount on paid rides, that deadline is May 8.
New this year, the Ballard Bottoms Tourism Council is partnering with Wheels and Wings for the first-ever Wing Cook-Off in LaCenter Park. Everyone is welcome to enter, from church teams to individual back-yard chefs. Entry fee is $25, and the wings will be provided. A five-judge panel will award a trophies and $100 to the winner, $50 for second place and $25 for third.
