Experience a true Cyclists' Weekend! Cycle the beautiful Olympic Peninsula on a unique Metric Century ride. Starting in downtown Sequim, you will quickly leave the traffic behind and experience the pastoral rural roads of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley as you cycle out to nine of Sequim's world-loved lavender farms, along summer blue waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, up into the foothills of the Olympics and along the Olympic Discovery Trail before looping back to Sequim. 

For recreational riders, the Fun Ride among up to eight of the Sequim lavender farms can be customized to meet the ability and endurance levels of all ages.

Regardless of which ride you select, you will experience a fantastic cycling experience. See the website for additional information.
