The SBC Board met on August 4, 2020 voted to cancel all SBC-sponsored bike rides through the end of August.  The feasibility of rides will be assessed on an ongoing basis with the hope of a resumption in September.

SBC Board will post on the SBC Facebook and SBC FB page past rides in the hope that SBC members and their family and friends will be interested and ride routes they have not ridden before or for some time.

The routes will be descriptive and include the length, route and any special interest of the particular route.

Please scroll down this page to view the selection.

Also the SBC tours in Canada and Colville,WA have been cancelled

September-October Regional Ride Possibilities

No-Leader Rides Compiled from SBC Ride Listings

Terrain Classifications  (From Cascade Bicycle Club in Seattle):

Terrain indicates the most common or average terrain type of the ride and should be considered relative to the length and overall difficulty of the ride. For example, a long-distance ride with a lot of elevation gain will be overall less challenging than a short ride with equal elevation gain. Consider the pace and frequency of regroup as well to understand how advanced a ride may be.

  Mostly flat: Trails and/or mostly flat roads with a possible gentle uphill
  Rolling: Climbs are short and easy, not too numerous
  Some hills: A few short, steep hills, some moderate upgrades and/or longer gentle climbs
  Hilly: Consistent or continuous climbing
