Info  •  Pre-Ride  •  Mid-Ride  •  Post-Ride

General Lodging Info:

  • Riders are responsible for booking all of their own lodging
  • STP only delivers to specific baggage drops.  If you are not staying at a bag drop location confirm with your provider that they will move your bags.  All bags loaded onto STP trucks must be tagged with the official STP tags in addition to any tags provided by your accommodation.  Bags will not be accepted without official STP tags.
  • Cascade Bicycle Club does not book any of the lodging along route. The Centralia-Chehalis Chamber of Commerce coordinates most community lodging and hotels are on your own.
  • Certain lodging options will sell out earlier than others; book early if you know where you want to stay.  
  • Hotels are usually sold out soon after STP dates are announced, and most riders will camp indoors or outdoors with space provided by community organizations.
  • Centralia College is the official midpoint, but lodging can be booked anywhere from Centralia (mile 103) to Kelso (mile 150).
    • Not all midpoint lodging is directly on route, so be sure to confirm directions.
    • Not all midpoint lodging locations have an official STP baggage drop; confirm which truck your baggage needs to be on when booking your accommodation and whether you need to transport your own luggage or if they will shuttle it for you.
