As one of the 10 largest recreational rides in the nation and THE biggest multi-day ride in the Northwest, the Seattle to Portland ride attracts up to 10,000 cyclists, rolling over the beautiful 200 miles of scenic valleys and farmland between western Washington and Oregon.
The iconic, community supported ride began in 1979 as a race between the two cities. As time went on, the ride developed into a more recreational event, with 85% of cyclists enjoying the scheduled route over the course of two days. This year, from Saturday, July 14 - Sunday, July 15, the Washington and Oregon communities will wrangle together in order to pull off the ride, serving as the major fundraiser for the Cascade Bicycle Club and furthering their mission: To Create a Better Community through Bicycling.
