Come join us on April 7 for the Olympia 200 km brevet. Escape the city and enjoy quiet rural roads south of Olympia. The route meanders through farmlands nestled in the valleys and is punctuated by a handful of steep climbs perfect for PBP training.
Start at 8 AM from the La Quinta in Tumwater. Come 30 minutes early for registration/sign-in.
(We don't recommend parking at the hotel unless you're staying there. Recommended parking is in the school district parking lot at 419 Linwood Ave SW, Tumwater, WA 98512.)
The ride will start at the La Quinta in Tumwater (especially convenient for riders looking to do the 300k on Saturday and the 200k on Sunday). We will head south, skirting the eastern edge of the Capitol Forest to the town of Rochester. Stock up here because there are no services for the next 30 miles. Eventually, we come back to the Chehalis River and follow the west side of the valley into Centralia. Instead of following the STP route to Buccoda, we will take the scenic route away from the busy highway through the Tono Hills and loop around Johnson Creek. The final 30 miles should be a relaxing finish along the Chehalis Western Trail back to Olympia.
