Ride Around Clark County WAS Saturday, May 6, 2017

Clark County's Premier Supported Ride is in its 34th year!  Come ride with us!

5 different routes  -  7 rest stops  -  Proceeds support bike-related charities  



Online Registration CLOSED


Five beautiful rides through the scenic Clark County, Washington countryside. This is the largest event hosted by the Vancouver Bicycle Club in Vancouver, Washington, USA and is fully supported. Plenty of food, mechanics and SAG support between the 7 well-stocked rest stops. Routes include 100, 66, 53, 34 and 18 mile rides. All are beautiful; all are fun! Please support this year's RACC Sponsors when you can. RACC would not happen without them, and they only exist because of you and other patrons. Our local bike shops who volunteer to support you definitely appreciate your pocketbook support in return. Pass the word!

FIVE GREAT LOOPS TO CHOOSE FROM (18, 34, 53, 66 and 100 mile) All distances start and finish at Clark College on Fort Vancouver Way. (Click links below for a map of each loop.)


100-MILE LOOP

100-MILE LOOP: The counter-clockwise loop travels through 5 towns beginning with an eastward route that heads out toward Camas, around Lacamas Lake (first rest stop, 15.2 miles), then north through the Hockinson hills (rest stop 29.5 miles) to Battle Ground State Park. Be there by noon to make sure you reach the remaining rest stops. Continue north to the Moulton Falls Winery Rest Stop (44.6 miles) and then pedal on to Yacolt and Amboy. Riders head west through the scenic Cedar Creek / Lewis River area, and south through La Center to Daybreak Park Rest Stop (76 miles). The route proceeds west toward Ridgefield, then south through Felida to the Mini Stop (98.2 miles), and back to the finish at Clark College. As always, refreshments and rest rooms post-ride inside Hanna Hall when you get back!

53-MILE LOOP

53-MILE ROUTE: Grab both the RACC 18 and RACC 34 maps to get a 53-mile route with less than 1400 ft. elevation gain. That's fewer miles than our metric century, but still plenty. And less than half the climbing. You'll be out dancing after the ride! START EARLY to make sure you reach the rest stops in time. Ride the 34-mile RACC loop east to Heritage rest stop (open 7-11) and back to Clark. Enjoy a snack and then ride the new 18-mile route west to the river and rest stop at Frenchman's Bar (open 8:30-noon). 3 rest stops.


34-MILE LOOP

34-MILE LOOP: This loop travels east around Lacamas Lake (Heritage rest stop, 15.2 miles) and back to Clark College. (1,000 ft. elevation gain) Click here to see the RwGPS version.

18-MILE LOOP

RACC 18: Our 18-mile loop (really almost 19 miles) travels west to Frenchman's Bar Park on the Columbia River and back.  Frenchman's Bar is the gem of Clark County.  Very close to town with wildlife in the fields and overhead and riverview riding.  About half of it is riding the wide, flat multi-use path.  We have a rest stop (10 miles) open from 8:30 - noon and the park provides the rest rooms.
