Worthington Park Quilcene will host the Bon Jon Pass Out for the second time, on Saturday, June 18, 2022. You want to be here for this bike race favorite! Part of the Gravel Unravel Race Series, directed by Peninsula Adventure Sports – it’s a big deal on the Olympic Peninsula. But the race is still local enough in character to make it unique and a special celebration for those on the east side of the Olympics.
The Bon Jon fun begins with Check-in on Friday, June 17th, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Hang out and meet other gravel grinders at the NEW Quilbilly’s Restaurant and Taproom, 294793 US Hwy 101, Quilcene, WA 98376.

Race Day in Worthington Park
Race day begins at 7:00 AM in Worthington Park, 151 E Columbia St, Quilcene, WA 98376. Worthington Park is a 10 acre event venue with beautifully landscaped grounds and restored historical structures, right at the foot of the Olympic Mountains. The Hamilton-Worthington Mansion, built in 1892 and the 1915 barn are registered as national historic places and are a must-see! The Park and the lush, steep Bon Jon Pass are the perfect setting for just such an adventure & celebration.
Gravel Grinding UP the Bon Jon Pass
Returning and new cyclists will enjoy the challenging race course up the Bon Jon Pass to Lords Lake Loop. Choose from the 32 mile short, 55 mile medium, or 80 mile long course and expect to be challenged – with no shortage of climbing! Plenty of good comes out of this race – a portion of the proceeds support the Quilcene Historical Museum, Count Me In for Quilcene – a non-profit dedicated to enhancing the Quilcene community, and the North Olympic Mountain Bike Team – a youth 4-H club.
This race course is well supported by staff, as well as dedicated, fun-loving volunteers, and exceptional Quilcene Fire Rescue emergency response crews – on site to support all bikers. This year, the race will add two more water stations in anticipation of high participation. There’s plenty of free parking in our new 120 car parking lot. Even still, we encourage carpooling as we expect a healthy turn-out this year.
Celebrate with Us in Quilcene!
Visitors and spectators are always welcome to join in the fun. We have a great day planned for all! Join us for free tours of the Quilcene Historical Museum. Learn about the history of Quilcene, Worthington Park, and the 40,000 volunteer hours that made all of this possible! Plan a picnic in the park under a beautiful shade tree near the duck pond and historic barn. Play in the open meadows, and celebrate at the end of the race. We’ll bring back the beer garden under mature trees, next to the pond – for bikers to relax and regale with refreshments from local vendors.
Important: The Bon Jon Pass Out is the only bike race in the Gravel Unravel Race Series that is hosted in Worthington Park. Ideally located, the park is within walking distance of Quilcene’s village stores and restaurants. A very safe and welcoming community; Quilcene is centrally located and an easy commute off of Hwy 101 – near the Hood Canal Bridge, Port Ludlow, Port Townsend, Sequim, and Port Angeles, Washington. You’ll be city close and have plenty of local options for dining, overnight stays, and other activities in the area. Make a weekend of it – race on Saturday and explore on Sunday – just pack a bag and get away!
