Ride the Hurricane!
On August 5, 2012, Olympic National Park will close the Hurricane Ridge Road for its annual bicycling event. This is the only day of the year when cyclists own this spectactular stretch of winding mountain road. All 17 miles of it! For the first time, there will be no pilot cars for the downhill descent, so cyclists can ride (or fly) at their own pace. At the 5,200 foot summit, you’ll be treated to snacks and beverages at the Visitors Center. Cost is $35, and you can register at http://www.portangeles.org/ride-the-hurricane.html
After the ride, you’ll need to soak in a Jacuzzi or hot tub, of course, and I know the perfect Port Angeles Bed and Breakfast: Sea Cliff Gardens Bed & Breakfast!
