2021 Grand Depart - Sunday May 23rd
The official XWA route has received a few updates in March 2021. These updates include a short re-route around an expanding strip mining operation east of Quilcene. It also includes significant changes to the suburban segment to provide better flow, easier access to resupply, and routing around some new land access issues.
The Cross-Washington mountain bike route is a 700 mile, mostly off-road route from the Pacific Ocean to the Washington/Idaho border. The route features a mixture of singletrack, dirt roads, and a bit of pavement as it crosses the Evergreen State.
