Chehalis-Centralia Optimist Club logoIt's the 33nd Annual Lewis County Historical Ride!

Saturday, May 9, 2015

The Lewis County Historical Ride is held annually on the day before Mothers' Day.  The event offers your choice of four loop rides, all beginning and ending at Stan Headwall Park on Rice Road, Chehalis, just Bicycles parked at the historic Claquato Churchwest of I-5 Exit #76 (Parkland Drive/13th Street).

Each ride offers you leisure time to view the many sites and sounds of rural roads in beautiful Lewis County. You will see herds of cows, perhaps a few llamas, and an ostrich or two. You will also have views of our three volcanos, Mount Adams, Mount Saint Helens, and, the most magestic of all, Mount Rainier. Three of the four routes take in two must-see sites: the Evaline School, a functioning two-room country school house, and the historic Claquato Church. (The 68 and 100 mile rides are good training for anyone planning to participate in the Seattle-to-Portland Bicycle Classic in July.)
