Tacoma Start – 38 Mile Ride

Gig HarborThe Ride Around the Sound 38 mile route is your opportunity to have a very full Puget Sound experience, with only a few hills. Your start is in Tacoma, just prior to the entrance to the Tacoma Narrows. The famed Tacoma Narrows Bridge will take you to the Kitsap Peninsula.

The Kitsap Peninsula offers spectacular views, rolling hills, coastal hamlets and, surprisingly, camels. First you will make your way to Gig Harbor, a little inlet town with calm waters. From there you will head inland towards the long lake and rolling, gentle hills of the peninsula on your way to Port Orchard with views of the naval yard.

Our way to the finish follows the Sinclair Inlet and around to Bremerton. A quick and gentle climb into Historic Bremerton and its downtown leads to our finish line on the waters edge.

38 Mile Route Details

TIME OPEN: 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM

TO FINISH: 38 mi (est. 3-8 hours)
