Event details and schedule

 

Very Important information regarding the ride on August 19th:

Please be aware that chip seal treatments have recently been applied to many Island County roads. Newly chip sealed roads will have varying amounts of loose gravel in the travel way and particularly on the road shoulders. Advisory signage will identify these road locations, however signage may not be obvious based on the direction you are approaching it from. Riders should be careful when approaching intersections, looking for signage or loose gravel that shows where they may be approaching a chip sealed road. When entering a chip sealed road, avoid sharp turns and higher speeds. You may also want to avoid heading into the shoulder where there could be greater amounts of loose gravel. The motor vehicle wheel track tends to have the smoothest pavement.
