With chilly February weather and 2,191 feet of climbing, the name says it all!
Kicking off the riding season in the Northwest for its 46th year, Chilly Hilly is a must-do. 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 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. So get the dust off your bike and get ready for cycling season early!
