Ride the Hurricane Road Cycling Event
August 4, 2019
It’s a Pedal Power Weekend! And it only happens once a year. Dust off your road bike and head to Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park to pedal the road without a car in sight to 5,200-feet at the annual Ride the Hurricane road cycling event. This is a joy ride and not a race, so enjoy the Olympic Mountain and Strait of Juan de Fuca views while you have them all to yourself. This is the only road cycling event in the nation where you ascend a mile high and a mile out to sea.
Riders have several choices distances ranging from 24 to 100 miles, including a Century ride route that will take you a mile high in the mountains and more than a mile out to sea to Ediz Hook. You’ll definitely earn your “made it to the top” photo after this ride! Stop by the after party at the Peninsula College parking lot between 10am and 1pm in Port Angeles for camaraderie and celebration. Space is limited for this unique bike riding event so we recommend registering quickly.
We suggest arriving in Port Angeles a day early to get the most out of your pedal power weekend. You don’t want to miss the Tour de Lavender cycling event. You’ll leisurely pedal through the back roads of the Sequim Dungeness Valley past farms and lavender fields. There are several rides for a variety of ages and skill level. Families with children can participate in the Farm Tour Ride, or opt for the classic long distance ride on back roads and the Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT).
