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. While the 2023 dates have not been announced, the ride will most likely be scheduled on July 15 and 16. Stay tuned.

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. The club uses SignUp Genius to allow volunteers to sign up for positions. Check back in the spring for a link.

STP Friday Buses

The Portland Bicycling Club offers transportation for you and your bike from Portland to Seattle. 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, begin at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, and the first bus departs as soon as it is full. The loading continues until all bikes and riders are loaded. Here are last year’s prices:

  • Cost for bus and bike: $75
  • Overnight Parking at the Doubletree Hotel:  $40
  • Bike Only Transport*: $40
