Ride the Willapa 2019

Growing into an event for cyclists from all over the "Ride the Willapa is back for its fourth year. 

From "Ride the Willapa":

Back for its fourth year, Ride the Willapa is an all-ages and all-levels bike ride in the Chehalis River Valley of southwest Washington state. Providing a beautiful break from city life, Ride the Willapa brings people of all ages and abilities to the verdant Chehalis River Valley for a leisurely-paced bike ride on the Willapa Hills Trail, Washington state’s newest rails-to-trails project.

This year’s route begins at the eastern terminus of the Willapa Hills Trail in historic Chehalis and ends six miles into Pacific County, in the Pluvius Hills. Enjoy up to 62 miles, a metric century, of pure countryside glory!

Experience the ride at your own pace and leisure! The Tour de Farms is also back this year, giving you an opportunity to not just enjoy the beauty of the trail and adjacent scenery, but also to meet our local farmers, visit the baby animals and buy some delicious food!

Make a weekend of this excursion and enjoy overnight camping. Or finish in one day and enjoy some of the arts scene, food and more in the Chehalis and Centralia area.

You’ll want a bike with 700x28c or wider tires…basically anything with thicker tires than a road bike will do alright.

Our 2018 event was our biggest yet, and it brought people from across the Pacific Northwest to see and explore the beauty of the Willapa Hills Trail, which once served as a lumber and passenger railroad in the 19th and 20th centuries!

Registration opens December 1, so get ready!
