The Long Weekend Ride

The Kaiser Permanente Seattle to Portland Bicycle Classic presented by Alaska Airlines has been around for more than 40 years. This year the event takes place July 15 and 16. This 206-mile bicycle ride is the largest multi-day bicycle event in the Northwest with up to 6,000 participants riding from Seattle, WA to Portland, OR in one or two days. The route takes cyclists through the scenic valleys, forests, and farmlands of western Washington and Oregon. There are four official rest stops with complimentary food, restrooms, medical staff, and mechanics. Additional mini-stops are peppered along the route that provide food for purchase, as well as restrooms and mechanics.

This event is a fundraiser for Cascade Bicycle Club’s programming in advocacy, education, and community rides, such as the Major Taylor Project, Let’s Go, Your Streets Your Say, and Pedaling Relief Project.
