The Longview Rotary Club once again presents Tour de Blast, a bicycle ride into the heart of the Mount St. Helens blast zone. We're back in June! This ride is a great training opportunity for the STP.
Fee: $75 per rider ($55 without a Tek Shirt, $95 late
registration and/or day of ride without a Tek Shirt). Registration
includes a moisture wicking Tek Shirt, food, drink, support, and post-ride pasta feed.
Tour de Blast is a fund raising event put on by the Longview Rotary Club. Our club is part of District 5020 of Rotary International. Rotary’s motto is “Service above Self.” We are strictly a charity; therefore, all funds raised by Tour de Blast are used to benefit community, national and international projects.
Event details and schedule
The ride starts and finishes at Toutle Lake High School, located 10 miles east of Interstate 5 on Spirit Lake Memorial Highway. The start line (including packet pick up) is open from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. An end-of-the-ride pasta feed is from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Camping is available the night before in the grassy field just before the baseball field at the Toutle Lake High School. Please register separately for this option.
You decide what distance to ride!
53K (33-mile) round-trip fun ride to the Hoffstadt Bluffs Rest Area/Viewpoint. Approximately only a 900′ elevation gain.
87K (54-mile) round trip to Elk Rock.
132K (82-mile) round trip to Johnston Ridge viewpoint.
This is a serious ride. If you think you have the gumption bring all you have because this is a truly hardcore ride.
