Blast Off!

TOUR DE BLAST | June 22 – Mt. Saint Helens 

Cruise Around the Blast Zone!

The eruption of Mt. Saint Helens was a momentous occasion for the entire Pacific Northwest. Tour de Blast is a momentous occasion for every single ride who conquers this event.

Sure, you’ll climb. A lot. But the striking views are your reward, as are bragging rights and the sense of victory you’ll feel when you reach the summit.

The Spirit Lake Memorial Highway winds up the Toutle Valley into the Mount St. Helens blast zone all the way to the Johnston Ridge Viewpoint. Most of the course is on recently resurfaced highway (blissss!) with wide shoulders and excellent visibility.

Cardiovascular disease and cycling

When we talk of cardiovascular diseases we are talking about stroke, high blood pressure and heart attack. It so sad how many people have succumbed to these diseases, but we are here to let you know that cycling can be a perfect remedy for cardiovascular diseases.

Some bicycles cost at least $80.
