Update April 13th:  We are extremely excited to finally announce that our finish line festival will be moving outside into David Lam Park!  Thank you for your patience as we make 2017 an RSVP to remember.  Click on the links below to find more details about our new and improbed finish line.

Bike and Bus Loading Details

What has changed?  

  • No showers available (this may change)
  • There will be a bike corral so that you can enjoy the festival without any worries, but it will close in the evening and no bikes will be stored overnight .  We suggest that riders confirm with their hotel that they will be bringing a bike either to their room or will require secure storage.  Do not leave bikes locked to car racks overnight.  
  • Riders will choose from a variety of food trucks instead of a catered meal
  • The beer garden will not open until 4 p.m. due to Vancouver, BC Parks & Rec. permitting restrictions

  • The party will continue well into the evening with live music, a children's play area, and a full expo area. If your friends and family are meeting you at the finish we will have plenty to keep them busy while they wait.  More announcements on what that includes later.  

What is the same?

  • Bikes will be loaded at the finish line on Saturday, timing is still being confirmed
  • Buses will load the next day (Sunday) at the finish line location
  • The community, commaraderie and enjoyment had by all!

 

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. 

Enjoy:

  • 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.
