Chuckanut Century 2014 was on September 14th!
Thanks for riding the 2014 Chuckanut Century! It was beautiful weather and a great day. Keep up to date on news about next year's ride on Facebook page: www.facebook.com/chuckanutcentury
The Chuckanut Century is held the second Sunday after Labor Day every year and is the club's signature ride. 2014 Chuckanut Century Photos - north route - can be viewed on Hovde Productions.
Come join us and ride one of the most scenic rides in Washington. With many routes offered you can pick your distance ranging from 25, 38, 50, 62, 100, or the double metric century of 124 miles. Although all cyclists should be fully prepared when they take to the roads you can enjoy the added security of knowing that there is ride support if needed and food stops with a wide variety of high-energy food and drinks along all of the routes.
No matter which route you choose, you'll be treated to Whatcom County's finest roads and sights. As you ride the south loop you'll have views of the San Juan Islands while overlooking Bellingham, Samish, and Padilla Bays along with stunning views of Chuckanut and Blanchard mountains, also known as "where the Cascade mountains meet the sea." The north loop offers spectacular views of Mt Baker as it stretches to meet the sky at 10,800 feet, as well as incredible views of the Canadian Cascades, Mt Shuksan, the Twin Sisters, Birch Bay, and Vancouver Island.
The 25 mile loop is perfect for the family, parent and child, or the first timer to an organized event.

Ride for Our-TreeHouse
The Reason we Ride: we support Our TreeHouse
Our-TreeHouse, a nurturing program in Whatcom County, provides a safe environment where children and their families grieving a death can share their experiences.
Children and teens who have had a parent, sibling or primary caregiver die often feel isolated. They may have difficulty in school or suffer from depression. Providing a safe place for children, teens and their families to come together in mutual support can help break isolation and offer hope.
Add an additional $5 donation to OurTreeHouse on your entry form and ride in memory of a loved one, wearing a special bib:
