Location: 7 Seas Gig Harbor Taproom - 3006 Judson St #110 ยท Gig Harbor, WA

Let's meet downtown in front of 7 Seas Taproom and go for an afternoon bike ride around the Harbor. Planning to be back in time for the night market at Seven Seas and tree lighting at nearby Skansie Brothers park. Ride is 22 miles with about 1485 feet of elevation. Pace is "moderate" (riders should be able to sustain 14-16 mph on flat terrain for about two hours). We will take hills at our own paces and re-group after them and before turns. This is a "no-drop" ride.
