Over the course of the weekend, we’ll cycle Washington’s Rainy and Loup Loup passes. We’ll all stay in a well appointed house in Winthrop, enjoy a hearty breakfast each morning and then head out on our cycling adventures!
The ride includes two nights lodging, ride support and two breakfasts. You will not want to miss out on the gal time in June. See photos of Methow and North Cascades scenes here.
Event schedule and times
Meet at the house at 3 p.m. - June 27. Ride starts at 4:30 p.m.
Friday – June 27 - Easy day. Ride to the Sun Mountain Lodge – 15 miles round trip. (ride starts at 4:30 p.m.). You can extend the ride to around 30 miles, if ride into Twisp and back (or do the Chewuch loop) or do both for about 45.
Saturday – June 28 – Hard day. (Washington and Rainy Passes). We will ride up Scenic Highway 20 through Mazama up to Washington Pass (elevation 5477 ft) and Rainy Passes (six miles west of Washington, elevation 4855). However, this ride has many options. We can customize according to the weather. You can also take the van at any point in the ride.
• The easiest option is to ride from Mazama (14 miles west of Winthrop) over Washington Pass and then knock out Rainy Pass (for a total of 44 miles). The climb to Washington Pass is challenging because it is long, but it is very scenic.
