Three Reasons to Ride the Daffodil Classic

daffodils - Mr UshApril in the Northwest is showery, flowery, and the time to ride the Daffodil Classic.

This is the 39th riding of the Daffodil Classic. Organized by the Tacoma Wheelmen’s Bicycle Club and slated for April 13, this ride will take you through scenic Orting valley and its surrounding hillsides. Riders will enjoy well marked routes with cue sheets and maps, support vehicles and fully stocked rest stops.

Here are 3 reasons to ride the Daffodil Classic:

  1.  This ride offers something for every type of rider. If you’re riding with youngsters or want to stay off roads, you can ride from 1 to 30 miles using the Foothills Trail. More ambitious? The Daffodil Classic offers 40 and 60-mile loops into the rural environs. Still not enough? Combine the loops for a century. You can preview the routes here.
  2.  They’ll feed you strawberry shortcake at the finish line.
  3.  This ride benefits bicycling. Proceeds from this ride help support WAbikes advocacy and education work, as well as local bicycle safety and education programs.
