RACC 2020 is canceled.

RACC is a experience we create that brings together many volunteers, business partners, and riders.  We sadly cannot ensure that our world situation will allow us the luxury of a normal, healthy environment soon enough to safely and successfully stage our annual ride.  We hope Covid-19 peaks soon.  But the record-setting unemployment, the many businesses with closed doors and layoffs, and many individuals and families struggling to adjust to new jobs, housing, childcare, and financial situations, will likely take longer.


This decision was not easy.  We love working with our partners in the community. 
We love bicycling and making cyclists happy.

This ride is our annual fundraiser that lets us contribute to
Bike Clark County,
Clark County Food Bank
along with other local charities to help people bike and live healthy lifestyles.  
If you are able, we encourage you to donate to them.

We hope to SEE YOU JULY 24, 2021.

Note:  If we are able to ride safely together again by July 25, we hope to celebrate with you by organizing a FREE Gran Fondo-style "UN-RACC."
Stayed tuned for more information as we get closer to summer!

START / FINISH down at beautiful FORT VANCOUVER



Five beautiful rides through the scenic Clark County, Washington countryside. This is the largest event hosted by the Vancouver Bicycle Club in Vancouver, Washington, USA and is fully supported. Plenty of food, FREE parking, mechanics and SAG support between the 7 well-stocked rest stops. Routes include 100, 68, 54, 34 and 20-mile rides. All are beautiful; all are fun!   Please support this year's RACC Sponsors when you can. RACC would not happen without them, and they only exist because of you and other patrons.

Our local bike shops who volunteer to support you definitely appreciate your pocketbook support in return. Pass the word!

RACC costs less in 2020. 
What?  Yes!  Lower prices on all routes and for kids.
You still get beer/bev included, but the meal is optional and available from vendors at the finish line party.

Registration costs are higher after March 31, so register early to save!


Online registration is QUICK and EASY, but if you prefer to print and mail your registration form with a check, click HERE.






 

ROUTES

FIVE GREAT LOOPS TO CHOOSE FROM (20, 34, 54, 68 and 100 mile)!  All distances start and finish at Fort Vancouver. Head to the ROUTES page or click the links below for maps.  Maps and cues will be available at the start. 

100-MILE LOOP "The Century"

 

Century RACC: You're up for a challenge if you choose this counter-clockwise loop that travels through 5 towns heading eastward toward Camas first, then around Lacamas Lake (first rest stop), then north through the Hockinson hills (rest stop) to the *NEW* in 2019 SPLIT at 219th St.  Be there by 11:30 to make sure you reach the remaining rest stops before they close. Continue north around Battle Ground Lake to the rest stop in Amboy. Riders head west and north through the scenic Cedar Creek / Lewis River area, and south through La Center via a *NEW* in 2019 stretch with a downhill we know you'll love. Just before the *NEW* in 2019 Ridgefield Fire Station rest stop, there's a gotta-stop photo op with some serious Americana. The route proceeds west toward Ridgefield, then south through Felida to the final rest stop, and back to the finish. As always, refreshments and rest rooms are available post-ride and we don't forget finish line beer and celebration!
(5716' elevation)  Route may require revision due to road construction.  As soon as we know, you'll know!

Consider the weather and your fitness level before choosing this route. 
We strongly suggest starting between 6-7am to ensure that the rest stops are open, you enjoy road support, and you're back for festivities.


68-MILE LOOP "The Metric"

 

Metric RACC: Loop travels east, around Lacamas Lake (first rest stop, then north through the hills of Hockinson (rest stop). Take the *NEW*in 2019 left turn on 219th St to ride through Battle Ground, to the *NEW* in 2019 Ridgefield Fire Station (rest stop), west through Ridgefield, then south through Felida (last rest stop) and back to the finish.

54-MILE LOOP "The Fabulous Fifty-Four"

 

RACC 54: The beauty of this route is its moderate mileage, friendly elevation profile, 3 rest stops and the scenery of both Lacamas Lake and the Columbia River.  Grab maps for both the 34-MILE LOOP and the 20-MILE LOOP to ride a 54-mile route.  Ride the longer route first to make sure the Lacamas rest stop is open. Enjoy a snack back at the start and then ride the flatter 20-mile route to our Frenchman's Bar Riverview rest stop.

Route may require revision due to road construction.
We strongly suggest starting between 7-8am to ensure that the rest stops are open, you enjoy road support, and you're back for festivities.


34-MILE LOOP "The Lacamas Loop"

 

RACC 34: This loop travels east around Lacamas Lake (rest stop) and back to the start via Blandford Canyon, a shady downhill with considerable Wheeeee! factor. We added a mini-Wheeee just before you finish because who doesn't need a couple of good Wheeee's! on a ride, especially at the end.  Lots of fun.
(1000' elevation)   
Route may require revision due to road construction.
We suggest a start time between 8:30-10am to ensure that the rest stop is open, you enjoy road support, and you're back for festivities (but not too early).

20-MILE LOOP "The River Run"

 

RACC 20: Our 2020 route is better than ever.  We ride through Fort Vancouver and over the Confluence Land Bridge to the Old Apple Tree and then ride past 2 huge murals in downtown, the Remembrance Wall and The Paperboy. Then it's up through Fruit Valley to a new out-n-back through the Shillapoo Wildlife Area before we head to the river and the rest stop at Frenchman's Bar.  Returning we take an older section of Lower River Road, plus riders can opt for 3 sections of paved trail that run parallel to the road.  Back to the start through the National Historic Site grounds of Fort Vancouver to finish off this casual ride.

Route may require revision due to road construction.
