Kaiser Permanente Seattle to Portland Virtual Challenge presented by Alaska Airlines
July 17 to August 8, 2021
Registration opens April 6, 2021 for the Kaiser Permanente Seattle to Portland Virtual Challenge presented by Alaska Airlines.
If you have always wanted to ride the STP, but time, life, and distance were getting in the way, then this is your year. Take the journey from Seattle to Portland from your own doorstep. We will take you on a virtual journey along the way and cannot wait to open up this iconic event to folks around the world to participate! The Virtual STP will meet you where you are both in location and ability. Finish the 200+ mile journey by committing to as little as 10 miles a day or as many as 200 in one day! Plus, $25 of your registration fee goes to support Cascade's education, advocacy, and community programming as well as our affiliate, Washington Bikes.

COVID-19 Guidelines for participating in the Virtual STP
- Know the phase of reopening in your locale. This challenge will be taking place all over the world and everyone's restrictions will be different.
- Plan your route well in advance and know what's open or closed along your route.
- Consider doing loops from your home so that your "pit stops" are always safe.
- Avoid multiple stops at locations to refuel, rehydrate.
- Don't take unnecessary risks like attempting your first-ever solo, unsupported, 100-mile ride. 3 x 33-mile loops from your home are much safer!
- Wear a mask if riding with others and follow your local COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines.
- Remember to Recreate Responsibly.
