Mt. Baker Hill Climb is September 8th!
Sun. Sep 8, 2019 7:00am
Ascend 4,098 feet from Chair 9 in Glacier to Artist Point (5,140 feet elevation) in approximately 22 miles. The Mt. Baker Highway (SR 542) is known as one of the most scenic paved roads in the country and rarely is the highway closed to motorized vehicles from Glacier to Artist Point. With steep elevation and several switchbacks, this ride is not for the faint of heart but the views are stunning. Experience the agony and the ecstasy!
Choose from three categories: Social, Recreational, or Competitive. There are two Aid Stations along the route and one at the Finish Line. Registration closes Thursday, September 5th. E-bikes are allowed in the Social division only, racers participating in this division will not be eligible for awards.
