When: May 25, 2013
What: The Lewis & Clark Ultra 12/24 is a bicycle time trial race where participants can race continuously for either 12, or 24 hours. The participant who logs the most miles in each time period wins. Come on out and participate or support your local cyclists!
Where: The race will begin at the Hockinson Middle School. Racers will wend their way over rolling hills and beautiful farmland to the Washougal River Road and then east on the Lewis & Clark Highway through the majestic Columbia River Gorge and past the famed Bonneville Dam. Along the way they will have magnificent views of Mt. Hood and the Cascade mountain range. At the Carson Hot Springs riders will turn north up the Wind River Highway to the moderate 3,000 foot climb of Old Man Pass before screaming down Curly Creek Road to the Swift Reservoir. Be sure to look up at the breathtaking view of Mt. St. Helens. On their way back to the finish line they will be mesmerized by the color of the Lewis River, and soak up the lush, dense forest of the Mt. St. Helens National Monument.
How: The long loop is 144 miles and at least 6,600 feet of climbing. The short loop is a mere 10 miles.
Early registration ends May 20 at noon.
