Chilly Hilly bicycle tour to live up to name this weekend

BICYCLING — Western Washington's annual “Chilly Hilly” bicycle tour should live up to its name this weekend.

Thousands of bicyclists are expected to take part Sunday in the 33-mile bike trek around Bainbridge Island. The National Weather Service says rain is in the forecast, with Sunday temperatures in the low 40s.

Cascade Bicycle Club, which organizes the tour, says more than 6,000 riders took part last year.
