**CANCELLED** Bike Downtown Tacoma's Light Trail !
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Another chance to light up our bikes, our helmets and ourselves and check out lights - this time at Tacoma's Light Trail !
This will be a fun, social ride. We will make our best effort to stay together--should we get spaced out we will slow or stop until everyone catches up. There are a few climbs and descents but the loop is only four and a half miles long - with stops for admiring and photographing displays.
We'll start with introductions and safety briefing at 4:45pm in the Plaza in front of the Tacoma Dome Parking Structure on East 25th Street. Both the Sounder and Sound Transit ST Express 590/594 routes serve Tacoma Dome Station. Parking at the station is free - the spots that don't have time limits tend to fill with commuters, but there are usually spaces available in time limited spots. The official ride will end at Tollefson Plaza where a live performance is scheduled for 6pm.The route that the group will take is linked below and there is also a route showing a direct, one mile path from the plaza back to Tacoma Dome station.
Helmets are required! White front headlight and red rear tail light are also required for this ride. Other lights are strongly encouraged ! Please make sure that any decorations added to your set-up do not hinder the safe operation of your bike. Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Please have full fenders if the roads are wet (or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group).
Other items to bring: ID, a charged cell phone, water, a face covering, cash/credit card, a small snack, kleenex, wipes and hand sanitizer.
Note: If weather conditions meet the weather cancellation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions, the ride will be canceled at least two hours prior to the start and Ride Leader will not be at the start location. Please check before leaving for the ride.
