Seattle to Portland

STP Bike Ride

This 200+ mile bicycle ride, officially the Seattle to Portland Presented by Alaska Airlines, organized by Cascade Bicycle Club in Seattle, is the largest multi-day bicycle event in the Northwest, with up to 8,000 participants riding from Seattle to Portland in one or two days. After cancelling the in person ride for the last two years, Cascade hopes to hold the event this summer on July 16 and 17.

STP Finish Line and Volunteering

Portland Bicycling Club coordinates the finish line at the Portland end at Holladay Park near Lloyd Center. We organize up to 160 volunteers to support the finish line. Go to the SignUpGenius page to volunteer or modify your volunteer position. Contact Corey Eng if you have questions about volunteering, [email protected].

STP Friday Buses

The Portland Bicycling Club Is offering transportation for you and your bike from Portland to Seattle for the 2022 STP. Your bike will be wrapped in moving blankets and loaded into a truck. You will ride in a luxury motor coach and you and your bike will be reunited near the University of Washington dorms. The trucks and buses will be loaded and depart in pairs as each pair fills up. The loading, at the Doubletree Hotel in Portland, will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Friday July 15, and the first bus will depart as soon as it is full. The loading will continue until all bikes and riders are loaded. The last bus/truck pair will leave the Doubletree Hotel at 10:00 a.m., no sooner, no later. Drop off will be at the University of Washington dorms (arrival by 1:30 p.m. depending on your departure). There is no reserved seating; seating is on a first come first served basis.
