Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Ride the Hurricane

There are a lot of PNW cyclists who don't visit the sleepy local sub forum, so I'm posting this here. Also, there are hotels, restaurants, and camp grounds, if anybody wants to come visit for this.

This is an annual event.

Olympic National Park News Release

“Ride the Hurricane” Bike Day Scheduled for August 4 on Olympic National Park’s Hurricane Ridge Road

Olympic National Park will host an exciting opportunity for cyclists to “Ride the Hurricane” between 7:00 a.m. [I think this is a typo, it usually starts at 6 am.] and 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 4.

To provide a safe experience for the event, the road will be closed to all motor vehicle traffic between the Heart O’ the Hills entrance station and Hurricane Ridge, starting at 6:00 a.m. and ending at noon. This applies to both uphill and downhill travel. The road will open to traffic at noon, when the event is finished.

The event is a recreational climb into the Olympic Mountains on the scenic Hurricane Ridge Road. The Port Angeles Chamber of Commerce is organizing the ride, with sponsorship from local businesses.

Olympic National Park will waive entrance fees at the Heart O’ the Hills entrance station for the rest of the day on August 4. Access to the Lake Angeles-Heather Park trailhead and Heart O’ the Hills Campground will remain open throughout the day.

For more information about the “Ride the Hurricane” event, visit the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce website at
