This event is a fundraiser for Attain Housing (formerly KITH), a 501c3 charity which assists individuals and families on the Eastside who are caught in a homelessness crisis. Whether people are living in their cars, housed temporarily in shelters, or facing eviction, Attain Housing will work with them as they stabilize their family in safe housing and work on goals to help them create a stronger future including finding and retaining permanent housing. Attain Housing cares and so do our wonderful cyclists.
Whether you choose the traditional 7 Hill Route (approximately 40 miles), the popular Metric Century Route, or the challenging Century Route, you’ll enjoy the beautiful scenery. Travel at your own pace through urban, suburban, and rural roads, on a holiday when cyclists seem to outnumber vehicles.
Start at the Kirkland waterfront, follow the signs and “Dan Henry’s” to great food stops, challenging ascents, and wonderful descents. Climb Winery Hill and be rejuvenated by the applause of your own cheering section and the lovely strains of Neil the bagpiper.
