Yesterday, August 2nd, I joined Patty and Rick on their ride from Sumner to Gig Harbor and back. We met at the Fred Meyer parking lot at 8:00 AM. There were 23 riders including myself on this beautiful summer morning. We set off and rode from Sumner through Puyallup into Tacoma. We passed Stadium High School on our way to the Ruston Way waterfront. The highlight of the ride was riding over the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. I love riding over this bridge. The views are always spectacular! After we crossed the bridge we headed to Olympic Village shopping center where we stopped for our mid ride break. On our return ride we had to go down South 25th Street hill that runs through Tacoma. It's very steep with a traffic light at every single corner and of course we caught every light! We finished off on flat roads back through Puyallup and into Sumner.
