This 200+ mile bicycle ride is the largest multi-day bicycle event in the Northwest, with up to 10,000 participants riding from Seattle to Portland in one or two days.
The route takes you through the scenic valleys, forests, and farmlands of western Washington and Oregon. Come ride what Bicycling Magazine has listed as one of the best cycling events in the nation!
The majority of the ride is on beautiful, rolling rural roads. For a 200+ mile ride, the route is pretty flat with the “Big Hill” coming at the 45-mile mark. It’s a mile long with about a 7 percent grade. Then there is a 15-mile stretch of rolling small hills shortly after the halfway point, the Longview bridge over the Columbia River crossing into Oregon and the bridges going into Portland.
An epic journey connecting two of America's great bicycling cities
