ROUTES

The century and 89 mile routes are BACK for 2022!  We have FOUR GREAT ROUTES TO CHOOSE FROM (100, 89, 62 and 34 miles)!  All start and finish in beautiful downtown Vancouver (behind BCC's shop at 1604 Main Street) and deliver the best of Clark County scenery and cycling roads. There's nothing like the northern roads and we promise to bring this pinnacle of local road cycling back in coming editions!  Head to the ROUTES page or click the links below for maps.  Paper maps and cue sheets will be available at the start. 





                    "The Century"

 

Century RACC: Are you up for a challenge?  Follow the metric to Battle Ground.  Then ride west and north from the Battle Ground rest stop at mile 37 to climb an additional 1,500 feet compared to past years. Those climbs lead to panoramic views of the county including Mt. St. Helens.  After traveling through the covered bridge by the historic Cedar Creek Grist Mill, descent fans will love Taylor Valley.  So be prepared: more climbs, steeper climbs, and even more beauty as you loop back to the BG rest stop at mile 75 before the final leg back to the start through Felida (water and watermelon at mile 94) and up the last two hills: Felida and the infamous Bernie.

   "The 89er"
          

 

RACC 89er: The 89er is a winner on its own – or use it as a convenient impromptu bail out from the century!  The routes are the same until mile 50 where a left turn brings you straight to the fun Taylor Valley descent.  You miss the mill and covered bridge, but you also “miss” 11 miles and 1200’ of climbing! Rejoin century riders as you both loop back to the Battle Ground rest stop (mile 64).  From there the next stop is Felida fire station for watermelon munching (mile 83) and then on to the final challenge climbs: Felida and Bernie.

                    "The Metric"

 

Metric RACC: : Loop travels east, around Lacamas Lake (first rest stop here at mile 15), then north through the Hockinson hills and up to Battle Ground. Take the left turn on 219th St to ride west to the New Heights Church BG Rest Stop at mile 37, west through Ridgefield, then south with some hills through Felida (water and watermelon at mile 56) and back to the finish. And last but not least, we're BRINGING BERNIE BACK to cap a fabulous ride with an infamous short little climb!

   "The Lacamas Loop"
          

 

RACC 34: This loop travels east to the rest stop at mile 15, situated on Lacamas Lake, one of three lakes surrounded by many hiking trails in the Camas area. After the fast and fun downhill to the lake, ride its shady north side, a few ups and downs, and cross Lacamas Creek through dormant camas lily prairies (blooming in April) as you head back into Vancouver. A great city and rural route on some of the best roads in our beautiful county!
