Bill's Hills October Challenge

Ride the indomitable Bill's Hills - a 100-mile ride with 10,000 feet of climbing right here in Bellingham!

From October 1 through October 8, you need to complete two RidewithGPS challengesBill's Hills October Challenge - Go the Distance; and Bill's Hills October Challenge - Climb Every Mountain.

By completing both challenges, you will have ridden 100 miles and climbed 10,000 feet!

You don't have to follow Bill's Hills route to do it, but we've included it for your reference, and - why not!?

Our club RidewithGPS account also includes Bill's Hills broken into three segments (you can only see those when you're logged in to RidewithGPS as an MBBC member) for you to tackle one at a time.

Everyone who finishes the challenge will get a Bill's Hills vinyl sticker to display proudly on your favorite mostly flat surface.

Ride solo, or find some friends in the Mt. Baker Bike Club forums to tackle the segments or ride Bill's Hill all at once.

The first three finishers of the actual Bill's Hills route - ridden in segments or all at once - will win $25 gift certificates to a local bike shop.

You must be an active member of the Mount Baker Bicycle Club to be eligible for stickers and prizes.
