Chilly Hilly

Kicking off the riding season in the Northwest for its 48th year, Chilly Hilly is a must-do. The 33-mile route around Bainbridge Island starts with a scenic early morning ferry ride across Puget Sound from Seattle, or you can join the crowd directly on Bainbridge Island. Join us for the ride Bicycling Magazine named "one of four classic rides" in the nation. It's guaranteed to be hilly, probably chilly and always a heck of a lot of fun. So get the dust off your bike and get ready for the cycling season early!

Registration Includes:

  • A scenic cruise on a Washington State Ferry (Seattle start)
  • Free food stop at Battle Point Park
  • Support towards local Bainbridge charities


  • Chili Feed – $7 online or $8 cash only at the door. Finish line festival with a fantastic chili feed benefiting a different Bainbridge Island nonprofit each year.
