Ride Description: 

This is a challenging but scenic ride.

The ride Starts at Dacca Park in Fife. Then rolls through the tide flats in Tacoma, the Stadium area and down to Ruston before turning left on to a challenging climb up N 36 th Street. We go through Pt Defiance park, to the Narrows, through Titlow and continue south to Chambers Bay before starting the trek back to Fife. We ride through University Place and Tacoma on the way back to Dacca Park.

This ride has many climbs. A few challenging ones. with some rolling hills and a lot of beautiful views. The views are definitely worth the climbs.

We will be riding Moderate pace. The plan is to stay together and regroup at the top of hills.

There are bathrooms at the ride start and finish. With an optional bathroom stop at mile #12, (Also a good picture point) with a rest stop (with bathroom) at a Chevron station at mile #15.9 and a food stop at Forza Coffee at 33.8.

The ride will start at 09:00 AM, at Dacca Park in Fife. Please arrive 15 minutes early to sign the liability waiver and to be part of the Safety (S.M.A.R.T.) Briefing.
