The Lewis County Historical Ride is held annually on the day before Mothers’ Day. The event offers your choice of four loop rides, all beginning and ending at (NEW LOCATION) Bethel Church-Assembly of God.
Each ride offers you leisure time to view the many sites and sounds of rural roads in beautiful Lewis County. You will see herds of cows, perhaps a few llamas, and an ostrich or two. You will also have views of our three volcanos, Mount Adams, Mount Saint Helens, and, the most magestic of all, Mount Rainier. Three of the four routes take in two must-see sites: the Evaline School, a functioning two-room country school house, and the historic Claquato Church. (The 68 and 100 mile rides are good training for anyone planning to participate in the Seattle-to-Portland Bicycle Classic in July.)
All rides are family friendly. WITH PAYING ADULT THEIR CHILDREN RIDE FREE
20 miles – Easy for hard-core riders (and only mildly challenging for those who ride once a year or like yours truly – haven’t gotten around to riding since the ground thawed). Two hills, one food stop.
48 miles – A mild ride with two hills and three food stops.
68 miles – Considered a medium ride with a few hills and four food stops.
100 miles – A medium difficulty ride that takes you on some real county side roads. Four food stops.
