If you’re planning to ride RAPSody: Ride Around Puget Sound but haven’t registered yet, make haste and sign up because the deadline is this Friday, August 20. The ride is on August 28-29.
RAPSody offers two days of bicycling the scenic back roads through five Washington counties. Starting and ending in Tacoma, riders pedal across the Narrrows Bridge for 170 miles of rolling hills and classic Northwest vistas. The ride is organized by five Puget Sound bike clubs: BIKES of Snohomish County, Capital Bicycling Club, Cyclists of Greater Seattle (COGS), Tacoma Wheelmen Bicycle Club and West Sound Cycling Club. All proceeds from RAPSody benefits Washington Bikes’s advocacy and education efforts.
RAPSody is a fabulous and well-supported bike ride, and features live music at the overnight stop in Shelton and at the finish line in Tacoma. But don’t just take my word for it. Eric Shalit has ridden RAPSody twice and is about to ride it a third time. Read Eric’s post about his RAPSody experience.
