Register to ride on the Hutchinson Center’s team for Seattle’s first Echelon Gran Fondo bicycle challenge July 23. You’ll pedal through Washington’s scenic Olympic Peninsula with the rare opportunity to race up Hurricane Ridge. All Center cyclists will receive half off the $50 team registration fee. Just enter the code “FHCRC” when you register.
Choose from Gran Fondo or Super Gran Fondo courses
The Echelon event, which benefits the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Survivorship Program, LIVESTRONG and the Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation, features Gran Fondo and Super Gran Fondo courses.
All rides start in Kingston. Enjoy breakfast aboard a Washington State ferry from Edmonds. Next, depart on 30, 70 or 100-mile Gran Fondo rides from Kingston through the hills of Kitsap County, or be among 500 cyclists to tackle the Super Gran Fondo. The 100-mile Super Gran Fondo features a timed 17-mile climb to the 5,757-foot summit of Hurricane Ridge followed by a first-class bus ride back to Kingston.
The post-ride festival includes live music, gourmet food and beverages from local breweries and wineries.
The Echelon Gran Fondo is the first of its kind in the Puget Sound area. Echelon also produces ride and race fundraising events in several other cities.
