Ride Description: 

Tour de Brunch Rides Again!  This is the RESCHEDULED February ride in a series of rides, generally on the last Sunday of each month, followed by brunch, in the Tacoma / Gig Harbor area. Credit for this series to Doug Pfeffer, who got me hooked on his Tour de Brunch series last year. The February ride is taking place in March because of snow and Cascade's Chilly Hilly on the last Sunday of February. 

Ride #10 : Brunch is at Wooden City, a new place in Downtown Tacoma that has been getting rave reviews. Ride is pretty short, under 20 miles, and will go through some of my favorite places to ride in Tacoma - Ruston Way waterfront, Point Defiance Five Mile Drive and North Tacoma.  Links to route on Ride with GPS and Wooden City below.    

Pace is moderate - defined at 14-16 miles per hour on flat windless terrain. There are a few hills and we will regroup after them. Ride is more social than training - slightly slower riders and faster riders who can pace down a bit are welcome. If you are new to Cascade Free Group rides, please click on  "Read our newcomer information" at the top. Please send a message or post a comment if you are unsure if this is a good ride for you or if you have any other questions.

Helmets are required for all participants on Cascade Free Group rides. Some other good things to have: a charged cell phone, ID, water and snacks, supplies to fix a flat (spare tube, pump, tire levers) fenders on your bike if roads are wet, front and back lights. Bring a credit card and/or cash, especially if you are staying for brunch. A lock for your bike is also a good idea. 

Register for the ride by clicking the red "Register Now" button at the top. Basic Cascade Bicycle Club memberships are now FREE - so become a basic member if you do not already have an account (or just be sure to show up at 9:15 so you can sign the waiver before we ride at 9:30).   

Cancellation Policy: Steady rain cancels. If the ride is canceled, the cancellation will be posted in the comments section below before 7:30 am and ride leader will not be at the start.
