Tour De Blast
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. After last year’s beautiful ride we expect to have a great fall day for a stellar ride.
Fee: $65 per rider ($55 without a t-shirt, $75 late registration and/or day of ride without a t-shirt). Registration includes T-shirt, food, drink, support, and post-ride pasta feed.
Tour de Blast is a fund raising event put on by the Longview Rotary Club. Our club is part of District 5020 of Rotary International. Rotary’s motto is “Service above Self.” We are strictly a charity; therefore, all funds raised by Tour de Blast are used to benefit community, national and international projects.
The ride starts and finishes at Toutle Lake High School, located 10 miles east of Interstate 5 on Spirit Lake Memorial Highway. The start line is open from 7:00 to 9:30 a.m. The finish line closes at 4 p.m. An end-of-the-ride pasta feed is from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
You decide what distance to ride!
53K (33-mile) round-trip fun ride to the Hoffstadt Bluffs Rest Area/Viewpoint. Approximately only a 900′ elevation gain.
87K (54-mile) round trip to Elk Rock.
132K (82-mile) round trip to Johnston Ridge viewpoint.
This is a serious ride. If you think you have the gumption bring all you have because this is a truly hardcore ride.
Ride the new road into the Mount St. Helens blast zone! The Spirit Lake Memorial Highway winds its way up the Toutle Valley to the Johnston Ridge Viewpoint. This is an open highway ride. Most of the course is on new highway with wide shoulders and excellent visibility.
