2014 Chuckanut Century is set for September 14, 2014
The Chuckanut Century is held the second Sunday after Labor Day every year and is the club's signature ride. See ride description below, and watch for announcements coming up about the 2014 Chuckanut Century - September 14, 2014.
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.
All routes start and finish at the legendary Boundary Bay Brewery.
