Chilly Hilly

Chilly Hilly

February 26 2017
Seattle, Washington, USA
 

With chilly February weather and 2,675 feet of hilly climbing, the name says it all!

Chilly Hilly has been kicking off the cycling season in the Northwest on the last Sunday in February for the past 42 years. The 33-mile route around Bainbridge Island starts with a scenic early morning ferry ride across Puget Sound from Seattle, or you can join the crowd directly on Bainbridge Island.

Join us on Sunday, Feb. 22, for the ride Bicycling Magazine named "One of Four Classic Rides" in the nation. It's guaranteed to be hilly, probably chilly and always a heck of a lot of fun.

Course is open from 8 a.m to 3 p.m. If you are taking the ferry over from Seattle, the ride starts when you get off the ferry. If you are starting on Bainbridge Island, the ride starts at the top of the ferry off-ramp on Winslow Way.

There is no rider limit but if you register by February 12, your packet will be mailed for free. Get registered early!

Chilly Hilly record number of riders is 6,029 (set in 2010). Each year riders come from far and wide including Alaska, Iowa, Nevada and New York - plus British Columbia and France

Enjoy:

A scenic cruise on a Washington State Ferry
NEW free food stop at  the Island Center Hall with baked goods, fruit and snacks.
Local groups selling food to support local Bainbridge Island charities
Finish Line Festival with a fantastic chili feed that is a fundraiser for the Squeaky Wheels Bicycling Club.
