Sometimes it just takes a little motivation to get up those hills.

Greetings!Welcome to the Passport2Pain!

With as much vertical as you want (and then some), bucolic vistas galore, and a party with snacks every few miles, P2P is a bucket-list ride that has developed a loyal following.

Vashon Island rowers have strung together the “best” hills from our off-season cross-training venue for your bicycling, er… pleasure. We start you on the course of your choice with a blank Passport, you collect stamps at as many of the 18 wacky checkpoints you choose -- making friends along the way -- and, we all meet back at the finish for an epic barbecue on the shores of Quartermaster Harbor. This year: Vintage Bikes!
