Explore routes below to familiarize yourself before ride day. Maps and cues will be available online and at the start. Note: we freshened up our routes in 2019 and are keeping them in 2020 with the exception of a few changes to the River Run. Enjoy!
Up for a challenge?
Choose our classic century with a section added in 2019. Your summer legs need a workout, so we added another couple of hundred feet of elevation fun. Start the counter-clockwise loop traveling through 5 towns heading eastward first toward Camas, then around Lacamas Lake (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. After you pass the Heisson Store and head down to the river, you turn left on Lucia Falls Road to ride up Kelly and Garner hills, into Yacolt, proceeding to the rest stop in Amboy. Riders head west and north through the scenic Cedar Creek / Lewis River area, and south via a *NEW* in 2019
stretch with a downhill we know you'll love to La Center. Just before the new Ridgefield Fire Station rest stop, there's a gotta-stop photo op
with some serious Americana. The route continues west toward Ridgefield, then south through Felida to the last rest stop, and back to the finish for a party! Start window: 6 to 7 a.m. (5716' elevation

in 2019 Ridgefield Fire Station
(rest stop). Then it's west through Ridgefield, south through Felida (last rest stop), and back to the finish. Start window: 6 to 7 a.m. (2278' elevation

The Lacamas Loop
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 the end because who doesn't need a couple of good Wheeees! on a ride, especially at the end. Lots of fun. Start window: 8:30 to 10 a.m. (1000' elevation

The River Run
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. Start window: 9 to 10:30 a.m.

The Fabulous Fifty-Four
Ride The Lacamas Loop
and then The River Run
for a unique route that begins with the leg-stretcher 34-mile route around the lake with a rest stop midway. On the return, stop by the start/finish again for a snack before the last 20 flatter miles, pedaling over the Land Bridge, past 2 huge murals in downtown, and out to Shillapoo Wildlife Area before heading to the river for the rest stop and river views at Frenchman's Bar. 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. (1322' elevation
