CENTRALIA, Wash. (AP) — Ten-thousand bicyclists are making a 200-mile ride this weekend in the annual Seattle to Portland Bicycle Classic.
The Chronicle reports some of the bikes complete the ride in one day. Most spend Saturday night in the Centralia-Chehalis area. Most of the route goes over county roads and city streets.
The STP is organized by the Cascade Bicycle Club in Seattle. The ride met its quota and sold out in February.
Riders start at the University of Washington and finish at Holladay Park in Portland.
Several Clark County school districts closed again Wednesday due to the hazardous conditions.
City Hall will open at its regularly scheduled time, while the courthouse will not open until noon because of a delay in restoring power to the building.
Police are searching for a 9-year-old Gresham boy who ran away from home after an argument Tuesday night. Gresham Police reports officers are concerned because of the boy's young age and the cold weather.
