2nd Annual Passport to Pain



P2P-Wall-rider-FA-120-530x300It’s never too early to start training!

September 15, 2012 – Vashon Island’s 2nd annual PASSPORT TO PAIN (P2P) – 10,000 feet of vertical, 76 mile ride. 

Anyone who’s cycled Vashon knows that the Island is a series of brutal hills connected by short sections of… well…. less brutal hills.  Face it, a cross section of any Vashon ride looks like your heart beat on Alpe d’Huez.  So, what if you strung all these hills together into one long epic circuit of the Island?  Crazy? Maybe – but a fun crazy.

So what’s with the name “Passport to Pain”?  Each rider carries a P2P Passport, which is stamped at 18 strategic checkpoints along the route, well… if you can get to all 18… or 16… or 12… maybe 8… hey, it’s your ride – it’s not a race.  The adventure eventually ends and the stories begin at a big BBQ, but there’s much more to it than that.   Interested? Concerned? Get on our list for dates and details. Please email – vashonp2p@gmail.com
