6th Annual Passport to Pain on Vashon Island

On Saturday, Sept10 in beautiful weather, hundreds of cyclists from all over the U.S. made the journey to Washington state for the vertically challenging but fun 6th Annual Passport to Pain cycle challenge.

Despite 10,000 vertical feet to climb, P2P organizers prided themselves on making the experience feel like a party on wheels. A dedicated team of event staffers regaled riders at each of the 18 checkpoints. Wearing outlandish costumes and providing comedic relief, they stood at the ready to collect clothing, stamp passports and provide refreshments.

Whether riders completed the Idiot, the Weasel, or the Weenie, they all combined for a fun-filled party at the finish line and an over-the-top pile of BBQ to devour!

What is a Century Ride?
#CENTURYRIDE

What is a Century Ride?

A century ride is a badge of honor among cyclists. Get ready to suffer amidst scenic views over the course of 100 miles and then celebrate your achievement.

Century Rides have traditionally been the backbone of road cycling, supported and sponsored by local cycling clubs across the country.

A century ride is of course 100 miles in distance, but most events support different distances, for all abilities.

Indian Valley Century makes a strong comeback

Putting on a big event in a small community can be a gut-wrenching task. When the Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce set about to organize the annual Indian Valley Century Bike Rides, fingers were crossed to hope for the best.

However, Saturday morning, May 28, was a gorgeous day for a bike ride: the sun was shining, the sky was clear, the temperature just right. As a result, 147 riders were on the route by 9 a.m. - a huge improvement over the last few years - and a hopeful signal for good years to come.
