The Mt. Baker Hill Climb was awarded the #2 Hill Climb in the US and the #9 Hill Climb in North America by Gran Fondo Guide

Mt. Baker Hill climb was well-run, safe, scenic, and challenging but with a positive atmosphere. I had tons of fun racing and meeting all the¬†riders, and I’ll keep an eye out for more reasons to return to Bellingham. Everyone warned me that the weather would be miserable, and I think you were all lying to keep your great area a secret. This was a perfect way to check Mt. Baker off my list, and I’m excited to share the episode of Worst Retirement Ever with you all

The Mount Baker Hill Climb has its bases covered with organization and is clearly geared towards the athlete’s experience. I never imagined I could stand at the start line with an ex-pro racer like Phil Gaimon, take in so many views on a closed mountain pass road and participate in an age category podium at the finish line.
