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.

Meadowbrook & The Snoqualmie Tribe Ancestral Lands Movement
It is through education and awareness that individuals can integrate land acknowledgement, mindfulness, and respect for the Snoqualmie Tribe and its ancestral and sacred lands, into their recreational practices and experiences.
Meadowbrook is one of the Snoqualmie Tribe's many culturally significant places being heavily impacted by recreation. There is a rich history of how it came to be and what the Tribe has done to steward this land for time immemorial. Every few years, the prairie was carefully burned, to keep the grassland open for food crops and hunting by the Snoqualmie Tribe. Meadowbrook and many of the trails you will visit this weekend serve as more than just a backdrop to a really great festival, and the Tribe is asking you to embrace how unique and special these places truly are. To think about how our interaction with place is part of a larger interconnected and dynamic relationship. It is easy to get caught up in conquering the milage of these rides but we are challenging you to shift to being mindful of the lands and how truly special they are.
Questions about the festival weekend? What's to eat at the festival and support stops? Are there showers for campers? Where do I park? Can I bring my dog/ebike? Are there gigantic bicycles? Find answers here!
