From either direction on I-5, take the NE 45th St. exit (#169). Head east on NE 45th through the University District and down the viaduct; turn left at the light and follow the "STP Parking" signs past the golf range on your right. Turn right on Mary Gates Way, go one block to Clark Road and take another right. Follow this straight into the E-1 parking lot. Once in the lot signs will direct you to either the drop-off area or the overnight parking area. If you are just dropping off a rider, there is no parking fee.
Just a few extra miles? No problem! The UW is off of the Burke-Gilman Trail. You can get to the Burke from North/South/East or West. Exit the trail near the light rail station for an easy crossing of Montlake Blvd.
On July 16, Link light rail will run every 15 minutes between 5-7:30 a.m. Bicyclists are welcome to bring their bicycles onto Link trains to get to the STP start line at Husky Stadium. A maximum of four bicycles are allowed on each car. More details can be found here.

*The UW does not allow tent camping. You will be asked to remove your tent. There are irrigation systems that are not meant to handle camping stakes. You will be responsible for any damage caused.
*We will also offer a Friday night bag and/or bike drop for a small fee. For more info click here.
The expert massage therapists from Washington Sports Massage Team will also be onsite to soothe your weary riding muscles. (cash and credit accepted)
All Personal Support Vehicles (PSVs) should be following the specific instructions for drivers. Please stay off of the riders' route as much as possible. Stay within the vicinity of your rider and only come to their aid when called. We have enough support on route for you to ride without personal support, but if you must have it we please ask that you follow the instructions provided and keep the event as safe and low on traffic as possible.
Please see the Centralia College page for more details on parking of support vehicles, transportation around town, and RV parking.
This bike corral will be continuously staffed by the Centralia Reserve Police Department during your stay in the Centralia area for a small fee. Transportation will be provided via the Centralia Trolley and public bus system to various locations in Centralia such as Centralia Thorbeck’s, Nazarene Church, hotels, restaurants, shopping centers and antique malls. We recommend placing your bike in the bike corral if you intend on using the trolley or public bus systems. If you have any questions on this new location, please call the Centralia-Chehalis Chamber of Commerce at (360) 748-8885.
Free tent camping is available at Centralia College as well as other indoor camping options for a fee. There is a free food stop for one-day riders and food for purchase for others. Fremont Brewing beer garden, live entertainment, and sponsor booths will all be on-campus. Free trolley service from the campus to local restaurants and hotels is also available. See the Centralia College STP web page for full details.
The majority of riders overnight here as it splits their days equally and has the festive atmosphere of a large cycling event. However, if you would like to ride longer on your first day and shorter on your second there are many other options along the route. There are a limited number of hotels in the area, and rooms often sell out before STP registration opens. A variety of community groups, nonprofits, schools, and churches open their doors to riders along the STP route. Accommodation is available anywhere from Centralia (mile 103) to Kelso (mile 150) and varies from camping to private rooms. Please see the lodging page for more details.
