Two days before Cascade’s 206-mile STP, ride the much easier Seattle to Bainbridge with Bike Works

Cascade’s Seattle to Portland ride returns this weekend for the first time since 2019. The legendary double century leaves UW starting at 5 a.m. Saturday with most riders finishing Sunday in Portland.

If it’s your first time riding such a long event, Hanoch Yeung posted a great video on Best Side Cycling looking back on a video he made during his first STP. It’s full of useful advice.

But if 206 miles sounds like a bit much or if you want a little warm-up, Bike Works is hosting the less ambitious Seattle to Bainbridge Thursday, a 6.80-mile ride across Bainbridge Island to Eleven Winery. You’ll have to pay for your own ferry fare, and 10% of what you spend on wine will go to Bike Works. Register online.

More details from Bike Works:

Join Bike Works for a relaxed, no-drop ride on Thursday, July 14th, from the Bainbridge Island Ferry to Eleven Winery at 7671 NE Day Rd W, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110.

All cycling styles are welcome. You can expect to ride 6.8 miles each way with 448 feet of elevation – you will need to be able to ride up and down some hills. (See the route here.)

Please plan to meet at the Coleman Dock Ferry terminal in Downtown Seattle by 3:30 to catch the 3:50 PM ferry to Bainbridge Island. 

Suggested donations will help cover the costs of pizza, salad, and non-alcoholic beverages, but not ferry fare or wine purchased by the glass or bottle (valid ID required). 10% of all bottles purchased at the winery will support Bike Works programming, as will any registration donations beyond the cost of this event.
