Ride Description: 

Tour de Brunch Rides Again!  Usually these rides are the last Sunday of the month, but due to busy Sundays in May, there was no May 2019 ride and the June ride - this one -  is early. 

Ride #13 : McMenamins Elks Temple in Tacoma is AWESOME and having a post ride brunch there is a great excuse for a group ride! We'll start in front of the broadway entrance, head around the corner and up Stadium, towards Ruston Way, a loop through Point Defiance Park, over the Narrows Bridge for a loop through Gig Harbor and then return through North and Downtown Tacoma. 

Pace is moderate - defined at 14-16 miles per hour on flat windless terrain. This is a hilly ride! We will take hills at our paces and regroup after hills and before turns if we get spread out. Ride is more social than training - slightly slower riders and faster riders who can pace down a bit are welcome.

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.
