The Long Weekend Ride

The Kaiser Permanente Seattle to Portland ride presented by Alaska Airlines is celebrating its 40th year on July 13 and 14. This 206-mile bicycle ride is the largest multi-day bicycle event in the Northwest with up to 8,000 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 five official rest stops with complimentary food, restrooms, medical staff, and mechanics. An additional 13 mini-stops are peppered along the route that provide food for purchase, as well as restrooms and mechanics. Registration fees support Cascade Bicycle Club and WA Bikes in their missions to improve lives through bicycling. The Seattle to Portland ride also contributes approximately $100,000 every year to schools, nonprofits, and other community groups who provide services along the route and at the finish line.
