Route Description

This year's Turkey Populaire is a derivative of the Permanent #01233 - Tacoma-Port Orchard-Tacoma. The route traverses the Tacoma Narrows bridge and circles part of the Kitsap Peninsula including Gig Harbor, Port Orchard and areas along the eastern coast before crossing back across the bridge to the finish. The bridge itself has a fully isolated pedestrian/biking path allowing time to take in the views. The route is scenic and hilly.

See Bill Gobie's pre-ride report here.

Northwest Harvest

We will be collecting cash donations for Northest Harvest at the start. Donations are strictly optional of course. If you wish to contribute please bring cash.
