Chilly Hilly

February 28, 2016 @ 8:00 am – 3:00 pm

Chilly Hilly has been kicking off the cycling season in the Northwest on the last Sunday in February for the past 44 years. The 33-mile route around Bainbridge Island starts with a scenic early morning ferry ride across Puget Sound from Seattle, or you can join the crowd directly on Bainbridge Island.

Join us on Sunday, Feb. 28, for the ride Bicycling Magazine named “One of Four Classic Rides” in the nation. It’s guaranteed to be hilly, probably chilly and always a heck of a lot of fun. So get the dust off of your bike and get ready for cycling season early!


  • A scenic cruise on a Washington State Ferry (Seatte start)
  • Free food stop at Battle Point Park
  • Supporting local Bainbridge Charities
  • Finish Line Festival with a fantastic chili feed benefiting a different Bainbridge Island nonprofit each year (additional cost)
