Welcome to the Two-County Double Metric Century, a rider-favorite for many years. This ride has something for cyclists of all abilities and fitness levels. There are four routes that offer some of the most beautiful scenery in Washington state. The food at the rest stops gets rave reviews. And the best part of the ride – raising scholarship money for kids impacted by cancer!

Let’s Raise Money for Scholarships for Families Impacted by Cancer

The Capital Bicycling Club, Providence Regional Cancer System and The Mayday Foundation are partnering together to raise funds for the Sigrid Hardy Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship, held by The Mayday Foundation, gives scholarships to high school graduates whose families have been impacted by cancer. We believe the next generation’s education should not be hampered by a cancer diagnosis.  Each registration includes a minimum $25 donation to this impactful scholarship fund. Learn more about the kids receiving the scholarships in this article.
