Ride the Hurricane
August 4, 2024
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day first of August, repeating until August 2, 2026
A RIDE LIKE NO OTHER
Each year on the first Sunday in August, cyclists have the extraordinary opportunity to ride the iconic Hurricane Ridge road when it is closed to all motor vehicles. Starting at sea level from the Port Angeles City Pier, or from the optional start at the Heart of the Hills ranger station, riders ascend through the Olympic National Park, past old growth fir, distant glaciers, and Alpine Meadows, to the stunning viewpoints of Hurricane Ridge.
For one special morning the road belongs only to the cyclists.
Ride The Hurricane is not a race, but a challenging, recreational ride through the gorgeous vistas of Hurricane Ridge Road in the Olympic National Park, absent of motorized vehicles. The road will be closed to motor traffic from 7 am to 12 pm, providing the unique opportunity to enjoy a summertime ride on a closed National Park road.
THE LEGACY ROUTE | This route has a new starting point from the Port Angeles City Pier for a true Sea-level beginning. Please plan to be down off the road by noon when it opens to motor vehicle traffic.
CENTURY ROUTE | Continue beyond the traditional Legacy Route and tackle the Olympic Discovery Century. This expanded route will combine a a mile and a half ride out to sea along Ediz Hook, mile-high alpine ascent, downhill return, and the ever-changing scenery of the Olympic Discovery Trail.
RIDE DAY INFO
Hurricane Ridge is only closed until noon, so please plan to be off the road before then.
Downtown Port Angeles has plenty of free parking, and we’ve rented the bus transit lanes for additional parking.

Century cyclist can also use early check in or look for the Century Check In table on the day of the ride.
