Course Description

Racers will begin their journey of 144 miles by wending their way over rolling hills and beautiful farmland to the Washougal River Road and then east on the Lewis & Clark Highway through the majestic Columbia River Gorge and past the famed Bonneville Dam. Along the way they will have magnificent views of Mt. Hood and the Cascade mountain range. At the Carson Hot Springs riders will turn north up the Wind River Highway to the moderate 3,000 foot climb of Old Man Pass before screaming down Curly Creek Road to the Swift Reservoir. Be sure to look up at the breathtaking view of Mt. St. Helens. On their way back to the finish line they will be mesmerized by the color of the Lewis River, and soak up the lush, dense forest of the Mt. St. Helens National Monument.

Weather

Your guess is as good as mine. We have had sunny and warm, cold and rainy (it’s usually drizzly and foggy in the morning), and thunder showers. This time of year could be anything (though we’ve never had snow – knock on wood). It can Get quite cold after summitting Old Man Pass. Be sure to bring appropriate gear for predicted weather conditions.

Volunteers

If you want to volunteer, you can earn a free entry for a friend, or yourself for next year (or another race hosted by Glenn Johnson). Please contact Pete Kent if you are interested, petekent56@gmail.com.
