BAINBRIDGE — The Chilly Hilly bike ride is just two weeks away and will help kick off the cycling season for the 40th year in a row.
The ride, held on Feb. 26, is 33 miles of Bainbridge Island terrain. The 2010 event brought a record 6,000 riders. The event is a fundraiser for the Cascade Bicycle Club. All members receive a discount off registration.
Bainbridge organizations will set up tables with home-baked goods and drinks for sale. Riders can stop midway in the ride for free hot apple cider and cookies. There will also be a chili feed at the finish line, benefitting the Squeaky Wheels Bicycle Club.
The course is open 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. For information about registering or the course, visit blog.cascade.org/category/events/chilly-hilly.
