Registration for the 45th Seattle to Portland Bicycle Classic opens on Jan. 9 for Cascade members and Feb. 6 for non-members. STP is a genuine ride of the people -- a great place to meet your new best friend and ride with 6,000 members of a rolling party.

Nothing compares to the smiles and satisfaction of crossing the finish line with the STP community in Portland.

A dip in the fountains at the finish line is an STP tradition for hot riders.

The Ride from Seattle to Vancouver and Party will take place on Aug. 24-25. Member registration for RSVP opens on March 5, and for the general public on April 2. 

RSVP riders pass through the lovely Washington town of Snohomish, where they join the Centennial Trail for 30 miles.

Winter and Spring Events and Rides

So many deals and steals at Seattle Bike Swap!

Looking for a new bike or gear? Join us on Feb. 3 for the Seattle Bike Swap and E-Bike Expo

On Feb. 25 we take the ferry to beautiful Bainbridge Island for Chilly Hilly, where the views of Seattle and the Puget Sound are thrilling.

Lots of hills, tons of thrills, plus a few chills, at Chilly Hilly.

Major Taylor, Bike N Brews, and Walla Walla

The Ride for Major Taylor offers fantastic views of the Seattle sky line from Alkai in West Seattle.

April and May bring milder weather and lots more riding opportunities. The Ride for Major Taylor is a fundraiser for Cascade's Major Taylor Project, which builds leadership skills and teaches the joys of bicycling to youth from diverse backgrounds. The Ride for Major Taylor includes a long and short route on April 21. Registration for members opens on Feb. 6.

May 5 brings Seattle Bike N Brews, a chance to pedal a family-friendly route on the scenic Green River Trail and sample some Seattle brews (or non-alcoholic drinks of your choice). 

The Green River Trail is a highlight of Seattle Bike N Brews.

May 17 marks the beginning of our three-day Tours season. Previously called Tour Lites, we are offering four of these three-day adventures in 2024, starting with our Walla Walla Tour. The golden wheat fields and verdant vineyards of Walla Walla make this event a favorite of Executive Director Lee Lambert.

Walla Walla offers big sky views and colorful landscapes of golden hues.

Summer Fun and Big Rides

June, July, and August bring many opportunities for big rides and scenic adventures in some of Washington state's most scenic landscapes.

Flying Wheels is a tuneup ride for STP.

One June 1, we take to the foothills, farmlands, and bridges of Western Washington during the Flying Wheels Summer Century, which offers three routes of different lengths. We've heard your feedback and are working to avoid the North Bend area with its traffic this year.

Test your legs on a short, medium or long route at Flying Wheels.

Our tours are loved by women and small groups for their exceptional opportunities to explore some of Washington's most beautiful landscapes over a long weekend. 

Wooohoo Winthrop!
Super stoked about Winthrop gravel!

Father's Day Weekend, June 14-16, brings our second annual Winthrop Gravel Tour. This is the second of four Tours we are holding in 2024--all of them beginning on Friday and ending on Sunday. Each day brings a new route, with long and short options created to show off the scenery, culture, and history of each location. 

Winthrop views and gravel roads.


After resting your legs following STP on July 13-14, it's time to head for the Pacific coast for our Port Townsend Tour. 

August brings the gorgeous double century ride known as RSVP on August 24-25, followed in early September by the Woodinville Wine Ride. This is a fantastic social ride, mostly on bike trails, with two sample tastings in Woodinville's Wine District, and a full pour at the finish line party. 

A toast to good friends and fantastic riding in Woodinville!

Blue Waters and Fall Colors

Lake Chelan is a scenic wonder. Treat yourself to three days of riding, socializing, and wine tasting on the Lake Chelan Tour, Sept. 27-29. 

Chelan's deep blue waters are a feast for the eyes.

Our final big ride of 2024 is an autumn tradition for many Cascade riders--the Kitsap Color Classic--on Oct. 6. Treat yourself to some beautiful views of the Kitsap Peninsula, and feast on famous Sluy's donuts.

Historic Port Gamble is a highlight of the Kitsap Color Classic.
