Seattle 2 Spokane (S2S) - July 6th, 2013
S2S is a one-day, ultramarathon endurance ride between Seattle and Spokane, much like the long-running Cannonball ride. The difference is that S2S follows the more difficult route along US Highway 2. It was designed for the successful veterans of Cannonball or other ultra-marathon events who are ready for a sterner challenge. The distance is 284 miles — about the same as the original Cannonball — but the climbs are longer and steeper than those on I-90. Total climbing is above 12,000 feet. The course offers some stretches of incredible scenic beauty and others of utter desolation that are quite a contrast to the I-90 route.
S2S is presented each year by the Redmond Cycling Club, with finish line assistance graciously provided by the Spokane Bicycle Club.
