STP is sold out!

I hate to break your heart like this so soon after Valentine’s Day, but the 2014 Group Health Seattle to Portland Bicycle Classic is now sold out.

Don’t despair! We have some options:

Trade your time for a bib

First, you can start volunteering to earn a spot. Volunteers who clock 24 hours with us can earn registrations for STP (and our other events, too). Helping with Cascade events or in the office is a great way to get involved in your community and keep Cascade running smoothly.

Learn more about our volunteer opportunities.

Bid in our auction

Throughout the coming month, we will soon post a limited supply of STP spots with low-numbered bibs for charitable auction on Ebay. Any amount beyond the standard online registration fee is a tax-deductible donation to the Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation, so you can feel good about spending a few extra bucks.

Or, take a completely different route…

Ride to Bellingham

Saturday, June 28

Ride in June and ride for a reason! The Red-Bell 100 benefitting World Bicycle Relief and Cascade Bicycle Club is a fully-supported century on low-traffic roads and trails through some of the most beautiful rural countryside our stat has to offer. The best part, though, is that you’ll be pedaling in support of two great organizations: Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation and World Bicycle Relief.

Cascade’s youth programming reaches 25,000 local kids per year! World Bicycle Relief changes lives in Africa by distributing transport style bicycles, providing thousands of people with access to healthcare, education and economic opportunity. This exciting partnership and ride offers participants a true way to affect direct change though their support and giving.

Don’t stop there, ride all the way to Vancouver

Aug. 16 – 17

In August, we’re heading to Vancouver for the RSVP. If you’re not familiar with this ride, it’s a two-day event from Seattle to Vancouver, with a stop-over in Bellingham. The Friday/Saturday event is closed, but we still have spots open for Saturday/Sunday. Come Ride from Seattle to Vancouver, BC and Party with us!

The heck with it all, go touring

August 3 - 9, 2014

In August, see the state like you’ve never seen it before during the 16th Annual Ride Around Washington.



The first route of the four-year RAW Cycle, the “Olympic Peninsula & Coast” ride, was designed with newbies in mind. The route has shorter (65-70 mile average) and less-hilly daily rides than in years past. This route features numerous iconic Pacific Northwest locations throughout the tour, and is a favorite because of its diverse terrain, excellent roads and gorgeous scenery.

Your bags are transported from campsite to campsite, so you can ride light. Meals, showers and road support are part of the deal. This tour has only limited registrations, so get on it before it’s sold out.

View all our rides and events at www.Cascade.org. See you on the road!
