First-timers and old pros, it’s time to get ready to ride!

 The Longview Rotary Club once again presents Tour de Blast, a bicycle ride into the heart of the Mount St. Helens blast zone! The Spirit Lake Memorial Highway winds its way up the Toutle Valley into the Mount St. Helens blast zone to the Johnston Ridge Viewpoint. Most of the course is on recently resurfaced highway with wide shoulders and excellent visibility. Fully supported ride with staffed rest areas (food and drink), bike repair, sag wagons and on-course motorcycle aid if things just don’t work out (flats, tired, sasquatch sighting…).

Do you like to have fun? The TDB is more than fun. It’s funtastic!! With funtastic people like you!

Do you crave adventure? It’s not crazy, but you could hit 50+ mph if you are. (this is not a challenge, ride in control)

Do you camp? We have a Camping option

Do you like to make a difference? The TDB enables the Rotary Club of Longview to do more good at home and in the world.
