Two County Double Metric

2015 will be the 33rd annual Two County Doube Metric ride, hosted by the Capital Bicycling Club. Enjoy this scenic ride through Thurston and Lewis counties to kick off your summer riding, or as final training before STP. Choose from five well-marked and fully-supported routes: 23, 32, 76, 105, or 125 miles. There’s a beautiful, fun ride on low-traffic roads for riders of all skill levels.

Nearly 400 riders from across Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia converged on Tumwater City Hall on June 22 to ride last year. When asked their impression of the ride, most riders repeated one word: wonderful. Wonderful weather, wonderful ride, and especially wonderful volunteers.

You can expect friendly, helpful people and great food at every stop on this ride. Each year, cyclists highly praise the volunteer crew along the route. in 2014, 56 individuals, including three kids, made the event a success. Volunteers welcomed and registered riders, served fresh fruit, sandwiches and burritos at rest stops, drove the course to provide SAG support, and offered mechanical repairs throughout the race.

The Two County will be even bigger and better in 2015, with finish line activities for the whole family. Visit the Capital Bicycling Club website (http://capitalbicycleclub.org/2County/)for more information, or contact promotions@capitolbicycleclub.org.
