Ride Description: 

Tour de Brunch Rides Again - August edition is happening early in the month because the end of August will be very hectic!  (NOTE: This is a date change from the original post- sorry!) 

Ride #15 : Let's find out if Dirty Oscar's Annex deserves its reputation as one of the best places for breakfast in Puget Sound - but first, work up our appetites with a scenic spin! We'll go around Chambers Bay to Steilacoom, then onto DuPont, loop around and head back for brunch via Scott Pierson Trail (route linked below). 

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. 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 8:45 so you can sign the waiver before we ride at 9:00).   

Cancellation Policy: Steady rain cancels. If the ride is canceled, the cancellation will be posted in the comments section below before 7:00 am and ride leader will not be at the start.
