About

This is an organized, no fee event. Requires a Gravel bike or hardtail mountain bike. Spots are limited to 60 so sign up ASAP if it looks cool to you. Its up in Olympia, WA. I'm thinking to drive up night before and motel it. The final stage of the 2019 Cascade Triple Crown is a one-day ride exploring the three peaks of the Capitol Forest, just outside Olympia, Washington. The route was curated by local member Tim Smith, who knows this forest like the back of his hand. The course showcases the best and hardest climbs the forest has to offer. With a bit of single track and a few local, neighborhood hiking trails, the finale of our year-long series is a showcase of everything we love most about riding in the PNW. Riders will start the day by meeting at Bread Peddler for coffee and snacks before departing. Riders should plan to arrive to the cafe by 9 a.m. with a planned departure at 9:45 a.m. The route will be 75 miles of forest climbing, taking you over 7,300 feet of elevation gain offering scenic views. You’ll want to pack enough snacks for 5-7 hours of ride time and be prepared to fix mechanicals as needed. This ride will not offer support or aid stations. Riders will enjoy the reward of a self supported ride through this challenging and epic forest.
