Required waiver: Liability waiver (this will also be available at the beginning of all three days)

This event is the first of a planned annual ride of the entirety of the Olympic Discovery Trail. Upon completion, the ODT will span 130 miles from the Pacific to Port Townsend. It is a glorious trail, and much of it is complete and paved. This event will span three days. It is not a race. We want to encourage folks to get outside and appreciate the natural beauty the ODT has to offer. Join us for small sections, for an entire day, two days, or the whole enchilada. Go at your own pace. Aid stations will be provided along the route each day, and for $15 per day, we will offer shuttle service at start and end points of each day’s route. In other words, we can shuttle you to the start from the finish, or back to the start once you’ve finished. We highly encourage ride sharing where possible. 

This is a multi-modal event. Each day must start between 9am and 11am. These are long days, particularly if in a wheelchair, and we need to allocate time for sweep riders and shuttle service. Cyclists, wheelchairs, runners, ebikes, and equestrians are all welcome. Ian personally will be testing the connections, accessibility and completeness of the route. He wants to shine a light on this gem of a trail because it has had a pivotal impact on his health and happiness. 

Ian’s Ride will donate funds to the Peninsula Trails Coalition for the construction and maintenance of the Olympic Discovery Trail. We are asking for a $40 donation for each participant and promise to give you cool swag and memories to last a lifetime.

Cyclists: The challenges of Day 1 are surface related. The first 16 miles are beautiful and paved. Then you will have 3 miles of single track dirt, then 4 miles on a gravel fire road, then 10 miles along highway 112.

Wheelchair Users: the first 16 miles are beautiful and paved. The route is not accessible, however, once the pavement ends on the north side of Lake Crescent. You will require pickup from your sag wagon.

At the end of day one, Ian and crew plan to meet up at Barhop in Port Angeles at 6pm to discuss the trail and enjoy a cold one. Please join us!

Cyclists: a great route. A road bike can do the entire 33 miles

Wheelchair Users: from Elwha Bridge to Hill St is an easy, doable 5 miles. Hill St is a fairly steep descent. The Port Angeles waterfront to Morse Creek is a beautiful 5 miles. Ian is prepared to slow his pace to 5 mph and ride-along with any one that wants to go at that pace. We will leave from the Port Angeles waterfront at 10:30 AM. There are a few short gravel sections, but it is entirely doable. The section from Morse Creek to Agnew is difficult for a wheelchair. It is entirely paved but has some very steep sections. Ian is also committed to ridealongs between Agnew and Carlsborg. We plan to leave Agnew at 1:15 PM.

Ian and crew plan to meet up at Peninsula Taproom in Sequim at 6pm to discuss the trail and enjoy a cold one. Please join us!

Day 3 - 21+ miles, moderate grades, mostly paved

Cyclists and Wheelchair Users: The sketchy and incomplete section is the 6 miles of Hwy 20 between Discovery Bay and the four corners section where we pick up the Larry Scott Trail. We don’t recommend that anyone ride on this highway. The Larry Scott Trail is not paved but it is a nice, compact, separated trail.

We will shuttle riders between Discovery Bay and Four Corners. There is no fee associated with this shuttle.

Ian and crew plan to meet up at Pourhouse in Port Townsend at 5pm to discuss the trail and enjoy a cold one. Please join us!
