Ride from Seattle to Vancouver & Party (RSVP)


Friday, Aug. 18- Saturday, Aug. 19

Please Note: Pending some confirmations from our partners in Vancouver, BC, our goal for the 2017 RSVP is to run one single riding event--that means there will be just one starting date that weekend, rather than two starts as in recent years. With this change we are hoping to return to the event's original one-start model, but with a brand new party, brand new feel and lots more fun.
Please check back for details at the end of January, as this change is not yet final.  Pending permitting, it's possible that we may still need to run two events in 2017.

This 175+ mile route of scenic backroads is one of the best the Northwest has to offer. Start at the north end of the University of Washington's E-18 parking lot and finish in downtown Vancouver, BC over two days. 


  • A classic pedal on some of the most beautiful roads and trails western Washington has to offer  
  • Views of the Cascade mountain range, Salish Sea and beautiful Skagit Valley Farmland
  • Crossing an international border on your bike in a dedicated lane!  Wave to the parked cars as you cruise by!
  • A unique ride through British Columbia connecting their many greenways, bike lanes and award winning bike infrastructure into downtown Vancouver, BC

Who does your registration fee support?

Did you know RSVP is a fundraiser? Your registration fee helps Cascade Bicycle Club provide bicycle education programs for children, families, school groups and everyone else who wants to ride a bike. It also helps us advocate for safer, more connected bicycle infrastructure throughout the state and region. And thanks to you, we’re able to offer fun and challenging riding events and free group rides every day of the year! Your participation truly helps improve lives through bicycling.

Our events are made possible with support from the local communities through which we ride. In addition to supporting Cascade’s programs, your registration fee helps Cascade give back to these communities and the organizations that thrive there. We’re grateful for all their continued support.
