Traditionally the start of the riding season in the Northwest, Chilly Hilly returns in 2021 as a summertime spin for its 49th year. 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 (though a lot less chilly) and always a heck of a lot of fun. So get the dust off your bike and get ready to tackle some hills and enjoy some chilly treats in town afterwards!
- A scenic cruise on a Washington State Ferry (Seattle start)
- Free food stop at Battle Point Park
- Route support
- Post-ride ice cream or non-dairy popsicle at the finish line
- Chilly Hilly T-shirt. Orders received by July 11 will arrive before the event. Orders made between July 12 and August 2 will arrive after the event.
