Ride 542 – the Mt. Baker Hill Climb

Ride 542 – the Mt. Baker Hill Climb

by / / 7 posts

@eightzero is throwing down the sweaty gauntlet here. He has a vision of a V-kitted, Rule compliant freight train of pain. Normally this post would be directly slotted into the Cogal section but it technically is not a Cogal: it has an entry fee, it’s too organized and people will not get lost. Actually I’m surprised there is a road up Mt Baker. From what I remember it looks like Mt Cook in New Zealand, crampons not tubs. Hill climbs are few and far between, it is important for us to support them by saddling up. Ride information and registration at Festival 542.

This ride appears on the Cogal calendar, but is classified as an event, not a Cogal.

For more information, please see @eightzero’s Guest Article on the subject.

  1. Can we get an update on how this event went? Sounds like it was a good one, I hope to do it next year!

    I have never done this either, but was wanting to do it this year (2013). It seems this event will no longer be taking place. Their website has been taken down. the race normally took pace on the 2nd weekend of September. There is little time left to organize this now so I guess I will have to ride it on my own if I want to do it. Pity, it would have been fantastic.

    That would suck. It was fun and, I thought, well-organized.

    Their site is back up – they had forgotten to renew their website registration. However, I still believe the ride won’t happen this year, since they haven’t even opened registration yet.

    An update …

    They seem to have got their act together and will be opening registration August 1 2013. Awesome!

  6. Or not …

  7. Hmm…website is up.

    I’ll be in Central Oregon that weekend, but I certainly hope they run it.
