Explore routes below to familiarize yourself before ride day.  Maps and cues will be available online and at the start.  Note:  we are freshening up our longer routes.  Stay tuned to see the new challenges and fun we have in mind for 2019.

The Century

Up for a challenge?  Choose our classic century which we revised for 2018. It's summer, so we added another hill because we know you're ready for a bit extra.  From there we continue the normal route. From Pearson the counter-clockwise loop travels through 5 towns heading eastward first toward Camas, then around Lacamas Lake (rest stop, 15.4 miles), then north through the Hockinson hills (rest stop 29.8 miles) to Battle Ground State Park. Be there by noon to make sure you reach the remaining rest stops before they close. The biggest route revision is here: After you pass the Heisson Store and head down to the river, you turn left on Lucia Falls Road (not right like in years past) to ride up Kelly and then Garner into Yacolt, proceeding to our new rest stop in Amboy (50.9 miles). Riders head west and north through the scenic Cedar Creek / Lewis River area, and south through La Center to Daybreak Park rest stop (76 miles). The route continues west toward Ridgefield, then south through Felida to the mini-stop (92.7 miles), and back to the finish at Pearson for lunch!  Start window: 6 to 8 a.m. (5387' elevation)   RACC 101 2018 

The Metric

This loop travels east, around Lacamas Lake (first rest stop, 15.4 miles), then north through the hills of Hockinson (rest stop 29.8 miles, open 8am-noon), through Battle Ground, to Daybreak Park (rest stop 42.5 miles, open 8:30am-3:30pm), west through Ridgefield, then south through Felida (mini-stop 59.2 miles, (9:30am-4:30pm) and back to the finish line festivities at Pearson.  Start window: 6 to 8 a.m. (2517' elevationRACC 67 2018

The Lacamas Loop

This loop travels east around Lacamas Lake (Heritage rest stop, 15.4 miles, open 6:30am-noon) and back to Pearson Air Museum via Blandford Canyon, a shady downhill with considerable Wheeeee! factor. We added a mini-Wheeee just before you arrive at Pearson because who doesn't need a couple of good Wheeee's! on a ride, especially at the end.  Lots of fun. Start window: 8 to 10 a.m.  (1000' elevation) RACC 34 2019

The River Run

Entirely new route with half the elevation of last year!  We ride over the Confluence Land Bridge to the Old Apple Tree and along the new waterfront before heading up through Fruit Valley and out to the river.  Returning we take an older section of Lower River Road, plus riders can opt for 2 sections of trail, or possibly 3 by July if the newest trail is finished.  Back to the start through the National Historic Site grounds of Fort Vancouver to finish off your casual ride. Start window: 9 to 11 a.m.  (361' elevation) RACC 20 2019 

The Fabulous Fifty-Four

Ride The Lacamas Loop and then The Trail Twenty for a unique route that's sure to please.  Begin with the leg-stretcher 34-mile route around the lake.  Then enjoy a more leisurely route, pedaling mostly low-traffic city streets that connect sections of three different multi-use paved trails.  Just a few less miles than The Metric but a lot less climbing and all the finish line food and fun!  Suggested start window: 7 to 8 a.m. (1637' elevation) Note:  This route will change slightly as we revise the 20-miler.  Stay tuned.
