Starting in Portland, OR and ending in Bellingham, WA, Drift West participants spend 3 weeks and 950 miles exploring the highlight reel of the Pacific Northwest. Geographic icons like the Hoh Rain Forest, Olympic National Park, Mt Rainier, Deception Pass, and the San Juan Islands are punctuated by “megacity” celebrities Portland and Seattle, allowing riders to experience the area’s renowned cultural and topographic diversity in full.
With build days in bewitchingly beautiful cities like Neah Bay and Friday Harbor, Drift West’s five build days are just as impressive as the surrounding terrain and feature a different affordable organization at each stop. Smaller affordable housing organizations like Makah Housing Authority and San Juan Community Home Trust who do local, specialized work are a primary feature of Drift West and afford riders a variegated perspective of affordable housing issues.
