About the Route
The Cross-Washington Mountain Bike Route is a self-supported mountain bike route traversing some of Washington's diverse geography on double track, gravel roads, singletrack and some paved roads.
The route travels through remote areas, however, there are many resupply opportunities available. Besides the physical challenge there are mental challenges to this route and it is also a great test of your bikepacking kit and gear.
The official route GPX has now been published and is available as the official 2017 route.
Grab a ticket on the shuttle to the start line for the Grand Depart in May before they're all gone.
Following the route
You will need a GPS, the GPX files, and experience following a GPS route to successfully navigate the route. There are no signs and many turns are tricky. No cue sheets are available at this time. The route can be downloaded from ridewithgps.com.
Due to the remote nature of the Cross-Washington Mountain Bike Route, resources and opportunity for resupply are limited. Plan accordingly.
