Anybody up for a real road trip? Then this week's Central Washington Bike Nights ride is for you. We're headed up to The Old #3 Restaurant in Ronald on State Route 903, northwest of Cle Elum.

It's a little over an hour from Yakima, and the destination makes it all worthwhile. The historic mining town makes a great setting, and The Old #3 makes a burger that'll fill you up for the ride back -- the Mother Lode.

As usual, sign up for our weekly competitions for Best Custom Bike, Best Metric Bike and the People's Choice prize. We'll also have a stack of Pepsi-supplied prizes and other surprises.

And we're just one week away from giving away the Sturgis Bike Rally Buffalo Chip prize package! Get in on the drawing for two rally passes -- good for tent camping, all concerts, races and events within the Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, S.D., -- this Aug. 6-12. You can also enter at Owens Cycle's second-chance drawing box, 1707 N. First St.

All Bike Nights run from 6-8 p.m., and there's never a cover charge.
