Pierce County Trails Day: Trails as Transportation - Gig Harbor to Tacoma (one way group ride)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
To celebrate Forever Green Trails' Pierce Country Trails Day, we will travel along Cushman Trail and a small section of Scott Pierson Trail (the shared use trail on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge) to get from Gig Harbor to Tacoma. Come ride with us and see how well these two wonderful places are connected by bike trails!
We'll meet at the park and ride on Kimball in the corner closest to the trailhead (near Wilco). We'll start with introductions and a brief safety talk. Please be at the start, ready to ride, at 11am.
On-line registration required. Participants do not need to be a member of Cascade Bicycle Club to register, but must create an account if they do not already have one.
Please note that this ride is one way only. You may want to try out taking the bus back or you may continue on your own. The return route is linked below. Routes can be downloaded and cue sheets can be printed from them. Ride leader will not be providing cue sheets.
Pace of this ride is Steady and the miles per hour (mph) listed is not an average, but rather the speed we travel on flat terrain without wind. We will be faster on downhills and slower on uphills. Every rider will take hills at their own pace and we will regroup after them and before turns.
