This ride will be a north-south double traverse of western Washington. The ride will start in Olympia and head north to (but not across) the Canadian border and turn around in Blaine to the first overnight in Bellingham. The second day will return south to Olympia following a different route and will overnight at the start. The final day will continue south to (but not across) the Oregon border in Longview and then return on a different route back to the start in Olympia. We will keep the hills to a minimum and the services will be plentiful.


This is a perfect route for a first 1000k. There will be sections of urban riding as well as some classic scenic highlights along Chuckanut Drive and the Cowlitz River. Lights and reflective gear are required for all riders.


The first overnight control will be in Bellingham, Washington at the Best Western Heritage Inn on McLeod Rd (~384 km). SIR will provide shared rooms (2 riders per bed) and access to your drop bags. We won't have dinner or breakfast for you, but there is a 24-hour Denny's in the same parking lot as the hotel.


The second overnight control will be at the La Quinta in Tumwater (same location as start/finish; ~738 km). SIR will provide shared rooms (2 riders per bed) and access to your drop bags. We'll have some food at this control.
