Ride Description: 

Tour de Brunch Rides Again - September stage early as Sundays at the end of September are booked! 

Ride #16 : Explore another - hilly - part of Gig Harbor. This one is mostly outside of city limits, including a loop over the Fox Island Bridge. Route on ride with GPS linked below. Start and post ride at Davenport Coffee. (also linked below). Davenport has the same owners as neighboring Harbor Greens and sandwiches from there can also be enjoyed at Davenport.   If you are coming by car, please park on 32 nd Avenue - between the townhouses and the back of the Fred Meyer - the lot for the businesses has a time limit. We'll meet in front of Davenport at 8:45 am for introductions and pre-ride safety brief. 

Pace is moderate, meaning we are expecting riders who can sustain a speed of 14 to 16 mile per hour on flat, windless terrain for about three hours. We will take hills at our own paces and regroup after hills /  before turns if we get spread out. Paces tend to vary with climbs and descents.  Faster riders are welcome to go ahead and the group will wait for slower riders, within reason.  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.

Bring a credit card and/or cash, especially if you are staying for brunch. A lock for your bike is also a good idea.
