Swift Summit 200/100
July 9 at 5:00 am
Not your typical supported Saturday century. Not Seattle to Portland.
The Swift Summit 200/100 bicycle race is an event that leaves you feeling inspired, fulfilled, and proud of yourself from the starting line to the finish. A race that isn’t a race.
Riders are provided a marked course and aid station/control points approximately 40 miles apart to restock. In between those support checks, riders can access convenience stores and other neutral amenities along the course as needed. The 200-mile route boasts over 10,000 feet of climbing and features several sections of challenging gravel roads, while the 100-mile route checks in just around 6,000 feet of climbing and has no gravel. Both courses offer scenic views of the Cascades Mountain range and run alongside the Swift Santiam and Calapooia Rivers.
This timed event begins and ends in Lebanon, Oregon. Participants will roll out in a mass start before being set loose to explore the rolling back-roads and steep vistas of the mid-Willamette Valley. 200-mile riders begin at 5am, and the 100-mile riders begin at 8am. Riders can provide one drop bag, no larger than a gallon size zip-lock, that will be transported to a designated control point by event officials. Riders will be able to access their drop bag two total times. Checkpoint and course-cut offs will be implemented throughout the day to keep riders safe and accounted for. Please refer to the control point information on the Ride with GPS course maps below for specific cut-off times.
