2022 Rider Registration
Gigantic Century, 50 Mile, and 20 Mile Registration
About The Rides: The Century is 100% road. It travels many of the same Carnation River Valley and Snoqualmie roads as the 50 Mile, but travels further North and West for some climbs around Upper Redmond and Duvall before returning South and East to the festival grounds.
Bring a road bike, or a touring bike for some low-gears climbing advantage!
The 50 Mile is 90% road, with a 5 mile section of packed dirt forest trail by the Snoqualmie Falls.
The course tours the Carnation River Valley and upper Snoqualmie Valley, mixing farmland and forest with nice views of Mt Si and the Snoqualmie River.
Bring a road or touring bike. 26" tires with a little tread for the dirt section are great.
The 20 Mile is a 88% road scenic tour of the Snoqualmie Valley, with 2.5 miles of packed dirt trail with some gravel, on a fairly flat route winding along forests, rivers, and llama farms.
Bring a touring or commuter bike with a little tread.
Supported rest stops are found every 15-20 miles in Carnation (Jubilee Farms), Redmond, Duvall, and North Bend.
On route mechanical support will be provided. Labor is free, but please be prepared to pay for parts.
Support vehicles and bikers will be out along the routes with water, tools, patch kits, snacks, and first aid kits.
A break-down number is found on your route map, to call if you need mechanical or other non-emergency help on the road.
Ride Start for all routes is from the Gigantic Bicycle Festival Grounds at Centennial Fields Park.
Departure time for Century Riders is from 6:30am to 7:30am.
Departure time for 50 Mile Riders is from 7:30am to 8:30am.
