Ride The Hurricane
Sunday, August 2, 2020
Ride The Hurricane is a challenging, recreational
cycling event using the gorgeous vista of Hurricane Ridge Road,
in the Olympic National Park,
absent of motorized vehicles,
for a round-trip ride to the top of Hurricane Ridge
from Port Angeles, Washington.
"Last year was my first RtH and it was the funnest ride of the
whole season. I'm bringing three friends this year and we're staying a
couple of nights so we can hit the ODT as well as RtH.
Can't wait! Thank you!" - ML
Register in Advance: By registering in advance, you reserve your spot -- we are limited on how many cyclists are allowed to participate in the national park. Registration also includes signing the required waiver -- this year the waivers are being processed online -- no need for paper-signed waivers.
Day of Ride Check In: Cyclists can actually check in, sign online waivers, and pick up their event packet, wrist bands, and maskas for "Day of Ride Check In" on Friday, July 31 and Saturday, Aug 1, between 10am and 4pm at the Port Angeles Visitor Center located at 121 E. Railroad Ave, Port Angeles, WA. This would preclude the need to check in at the desk on Aug 2.
Hurricane Ridge Road will be CLOSED to motorized vehicles, 7:00am - 12:00pm: the road opens back up to vehicles at noon, and all cyclists are encouraged to be off the road at that time.
When you register online, you will also have the opportunity to donate to the either or both the Washington's National Park Fund (to support the Olympic National Park) and the Peninsula Trails Coalition (to support the Olympic Discovery Trail)!
Event Description: This very unique ride allows cyclists to have the iconic Olympic National Park Hurricane Ridge Road all to themselves, free of motorized vehicles, from 7am-noon. This is not a race but a recreational ride open to all abilities and ages.
We'll have more information that we will email registrants as we get closer to August 2th.
