Ride Description: 

A ride around some of the more scenic and bike friendly parts of Tacoma, starting at Tacoma Dome Station and going along the waterfront to Point Defiance, through North End Tacoma and back downtown. Depending on the mood of the group, we'll either make a quick stop at the International House of Donuts or a longer break at the Harmon Brewery on Pacific Avenue - both are along the last couple of miles of the route. Please note, if we stop at the Harmon mid-ride, per Cascade Bike Club free group ride rules, the visit will be non-alcholic. But not to worry, the food is good ! 

Please meet us about 20 minutes before the ride start in front of the parking structure with the sign that says "Tacoma Dome Station" on 25th street.  

Please register for the ride by using the "Register Now" button at the top of the page. You can sign the waiver at the ride start, but it will save us time if you register on-line at least two hours before the ride start time. You do not need to be a member of Cascade to register on-line, you just need to create an account. There is no cost to create an account. If you register and your plans change, there is no need to "unregister". If you are not there at the start time, we'll assume you are not coming.  

New riders are always welcome.  If you are new to Cascade free group rides, please read our newcomer information (link above). Please note: helmets are required on all Cascade rides. Other strongly recommended items to bring with you: water, snacks, a spare tube, tire levers and anything else needed to change a flat tire, front and rear lights,  a charged cell phone, ID, a credit card and some cash. If roads are wet, please have fenders on your bike. 

The ride with GPS link below has the route map that you can download and cue sheets that can be printed. Please print a cue sheet if you would like one.
