The Lewis County Historical Ride is held annually on the day before Mothers' Day.
The event offers your choice of four loop rides, all beginning and ending at
(NEW LOCATION) Jackson Prairie Church
4224 Jackson , Chehalis, WA 98532.
Coming from I-5 North, Take exit 68 for Highway 12, turn left. Go to Jackson Highway turn left (stop light) destination is on left.
Coming from I-5 South, Take exit 68 Hwy 12. Turn right onto Hwy 12. Turn left on Jackson Hwy (STOP LIGHT). Turn left. Your destination will be on left.
Each ride offers you leisure time to view the many sites and sounds of rural roads in beautiful Lewis County. You will see herds of cows, perhaps a few llamas, and an ostrich or two. You will also have views of our three volcanos, Mount Adams, Mount Saint Helens, and, the most magestic of all, Mount Rainier. Three of the four routes take in two must-see sites: the Evaline School, a functioning two-room country school house, and the historic Claquato Church. (The 68 and 100 mile rides are good training for anyone planning to participate in the Seattle-to-Portland Bicycle Classic in July.)
