Ride The Hurricane is not a race, but a challenging, recreational cycling event that allows participants to climb through the gorgeous vistas of Hurricane Ridge Road in the Olympic National Park, absent of motorized vehicles. The road will be closed to all motorized traffic from 7 am to 12 pm, providing the unique opportunity to enjoy a summertime ride on a closed National Park road.
THE LEGACY ROUTE: This route has a new starting point from the Port Angeles City Pier for a true Sea-level beginning. Registered participants also have the option to park at the Heart of the Hills ranger station at the entrance to Olympic National Park.

CENTURY ROUTE (COMING IN 2021): DUE TO COVID 19 WE ARE NOT SUPPORTING THE CENTURY ROUTE, BUT ANTICIPATE OFFERING THIS FULLY SUPPORTED RIDE IN 2021. Next year cyclists will have the option to continue beyond the traditional Legacy Route and tackle the Olympic Discovery Century. This expanded route will combine a mile-high alpine ascent, downhill return, a mile and a half out to sea along Ediz Hook, and the ever-changing scenery of the Olympic Discovery Trail.

fully supported aid stations
Registered riders will have plenty of chances to fuel up. We’ll have five aid stations along the route with water and a variety of carb and protein loaded snacks, as well as an Emergency Medical unit on standby along the route. We will also have a refreshment station at the top, along with Imagination to Imagery Photography, for a summit photo (example below) available for purchase.
