About the Ride

Ride the Snoqualmie River Valley

The Alaska Airlines Flying Wheels Summer Century weaves it’s way through the valley, ridges, and rivers that make up Western Washington’s Snoqualmie Valley.  This fertile valley is home to many organic farms producing some of Western Washington’s highest quality produce, meats, and cheeses.

You will spend your day rolling from the valley floor to the ridges that define this beautiful place, a peaceful getaway not far from the city.  One of our main food stops (65 and 100 mile routes will stop here twice!) is Camp Korey located at the beautiful and historic Carnation Farm.  Once the main research farm in the valley and namesake of the town it is in, it now is home to Camp Korey whose mission is “to honor the courage, strength, and determination of children living with serious and life-altering medical conditions and their families…”

On this event Cascade Bicycle Club has partnered with Camp Korey to give riders the opportunity to ride on behalf of the community Camp Korey supports.  See details of how to ride and raise money for Camp Korey on our registration page

There are 4 different riding options for the event.  Riders can choose the 23-, 46,-, 67, or 100- mile routes.  The 23-mile route heads from Marymoor Park around Lake Sammamish.  Staying close to the shore it is mostly flat with just a few ups.

The 45-, 67-, and 100- mile routes have a good number of hills and each option will have a decision point at which you can decide to shorten your ride or continue for the bigger mileage.  It is a great opportunity to test your fitness especially if you are training up to ride 200+ miles to Portland or 180+ miles to Vancouver!  Click here for maps and elevation info.
