Ride Around Washington | Cascade Bicycle Club

Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and an inability to guarantee that we will be able to run this event at the capacity required we are forced to make the decision to cancel the 2020 Ride Around Washington.  We are extremely disappointed, but 2021 plans are already in progress and we plan on delivering an amazing “welcome back” party for all of our dedicated supporters.  Check back for more 2021 tour details by May 1st and we will open registration in the fall for 2021. 

 

 

23rd Annual Ride Around Washington

Several bicycles lean against a worn wood-sided building during RAW

Cheney, WA to Chewelah, WA

Saturday, August 1 to Saturday, August 8

NEW FOR 2020!  For the first time in RAW history, we will have six days of great riding but only two campsites. That means only one move day!  And for those who prefer clean sheets each night, there is the option to make motel reservations in both Cheney and Chewelah.  

RAW 2020 will offer four loop rides, one out and back ride, and one point-to-point ride on the day we break camp in Cheney and set up in Chewelah. This year riders will also have the option to drive themselves to the Finish line in Chewelah, where they can leave their cars for the week, and purchase a shuttle ride to the Start Line in Cheney. This is a perfect option for those living outside the Seattle area.  For those in the Seattle area, there is still the option to purchase round-trip bus transportation from the University of Washington to the Start in Cheney and from the Finish in Chewelah back to UW.

Although the number of camping venues has decreased for 2020, the heart of what attracts riders to RAW remains the same – stunning routes, variable terrain, low-traffic roads, challenging climbs, and thrilling descents, all coupled with great support! There is a lot of mileage for those who want it, but on most days there are shorter options for those who prefer a more moderate ride. And having just two base camps will enable staff to enhance and improve the in-camp experience for riders, thus ensuring that RAW 2020 will be a most memorable experience!

Please join us in 2020!

Salem Bicycle Club

The Salem Bicycle Club was formed in 1969 for the purpose of promoting recreational bicycle tours in the local area. Over the years, bicycle advocacy for improved biking conditions has been a priority as well. Since formation of the Salem Bicycle Club, it has grown to more than 400 members. The club supports the advocacy work of the League of American Bicyclists.

The club schedules weekly rides each weekend throughout the year. During the summer, the club also schedules week day evening rides and overnight rides. Ride distances range from 15 to 100 miles. Many routes are specially designed for novices. Non-members are welcome on club rides. All rides have assigned ride coordinators. Each ride participant must sign a release and waiver of liability before the ride and must wear a helmet meeting CPSC requirements.

The club annually sponsors two event rides which are widely publicized and draw cyclists from throughout the Northwest. These rides are the Monster Cookie Metric Century Bicycle Ride on the last Sunday in April and the Peach of a Century in late August.

The club’s newsletter, Spokes, is published 10 times each year. The newsletter provides members with the monthly rides list and includes other information and articles of interest to local bicyclists. The current and past issues of the newsletter and information on how to submit articles for publication are available on-line.

Monthly club meetings include programs on bicycle maintenance and repair, bicycle touring, health and exercise, riding law, and safety. Meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month except December and January and start with a social half-hour at 6:30 p.m.

Jim Ross is club president. Winnie Sangirardi is membership coordinator. The Salem Bicycle Club’s snail-mail address is P.O. Box 2224, Salem, OR 97308. For information about joining the club, see the Membership page.
