Ride Description: 

    As daylight returns by increments, we reflect on what has passed,

    The season of Love and compliments, if only it would last.

    We can escape with Loves intent, to all Joy will be cast!

    Your ride asks for acknowledgement, for freedom lent it hast!

    Get on your bike the instrument, our future is forcast,

    The wheel our pen, the road parchment, we write the travels vast!

    We depart the waterfront and work our way to the West Valley Road. Our first stop is Sumner where the road turns West Northwest on the River Road

    through lower Puyallup and into Tacoma. We'll enjoy the water views through Ruston, where we will climb to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge! Gig Harbor will

    welcome us for Italian fare at iL Lucano Resteraunte'! After lunch, the road twists, winds and climbs through Ohlala for a glimps of Vashon Island across the

    Colvos Passage. Manchester is the doorway to Sinclair Inlet and the fabulous shore ride to Port Orchard, where the footferry is our delight to Bremerton.

    We will dot the "i" of our spirits with espresso at Frasche Cup before the return to Seattle on the Bremerton Ferry!! Bring $ for lunch and footferry fees.

    A good assortment of tools and tubes is in order as we are out "in the sticks".  And lights would be welcome.
