Spring 200K (ACP) 4/5

E-mail

This ride will take you from a location near the Bainbridge Ferry Terminal north and across the Agate Pass Bridge onto the Kitsap Peninsula.  From there you’ll head to the northernmost spit of the peninsula and visit the Point No Point lighthouse.  Then back south to go around Port Gamble, across the Hood Canal Bridge and onto the Olympic Peninsula.  From here, you’ll and north to Port Townsend along roads and trails.  After you’ve re-charged yourself in this charming town, it’s up and down a hill for some more lighthouse action at Fort Worden.  The trip back to Kitsap offers some new roads and some repeats.  Once across the Hood Canal Bridge you’ll head south to hug the coast around Poulsbo before returning to Bainbridge and the start.  Riders will have plenty of margin to catch a ferry home afterwards.  The ride features ~6500 ft of largely gentle climbing.

Note: the start time is 8 am, repeat, 8 am.

Ride Summary:
We'll be starting at 8am so you'll want to catch the 6:10 ferry out of Seattle, or come over the night before.  The 300k on the previous day ends in Bainbridge so you can make a weekend of riding if you wish..

Riders should have plenty of time to catch a ferry home on the same day after their 200k.

This is an early season ride, so come prepared with lights and reflective gear. If the weather looks like rain, you will avoid the wrath of fellow riders and score points with fenders and a buddy flap. As usual, there is no official support on the route, although we pass through several communities with services. A final cue sheet and map will be posted the week of the ride.

Current RUSA membership is required for this ride and SIR membership gets you a discount. If your RUSA and Seattle Randonneurs memberships are not up-to-date, we would greatly appreciate taking care of this before the ride in order to simplify the sign in, although we will have membership and renewal forms at the start. And we welcome new members!
