GROUP RIDES

ROAD BIKING / SATURDAYS All Year @ 9:00am / 35-70 miles / Leaving from 6th Avenue Store

Join us Saturday mornings at 9am for a fun but challenging road ride to destinations such as Orting, Gig Harbor, Bonney Lake and DuPont. Riders split up into three groups: Group A – ride fast and find your own way home, Group B and C are no drop and a slower pace. Rides vary from 35 to 70 miles long, and average about 15mph with minimal food/rest stops. Dress for the weather & bring flat repair tools. Rides are led by Jim Ahrens, who posts the route on our facebook during the week, so check it out and come on down.

RACING

Learn the fundamentals of competitive cycling with the Tacoma Bike Cycling Team. We are a low-key group with an emphasis on having fun. Our riders compete anywhere from Cat 1-5: men, women & masters. Occasional “trainer nights” will keep sweating in the off-season, and our recurring Fight Club series helps simulate the elbow-to-elbow maneuvering you can expect during a race.

To learn more about racing with Tacoma Bike, contact Marty Van Eycke at martjv@hotmail.com. You can also purchase Team kits & jerseys from the team.

TOURING

Tacoma will always be our home, but you’ll also find us exploring the Pacific Northwest – and beyond. Our customers love swapping stories about their cycling adventures, and we’re thrilled to be a part of their excursions. Our supported tours (complete with sag wagon & midway lunch delivery) are a favorite among our customers, and typically take place in the Spring.

To learn more about touring with Tacoma Bike or to suggest a destination, contact Mike Brown at mike@tacomabike.com or watch our Facebook page for the latest announcements.

OUTREACH

We believe that the life of a bike shop extends far beyond its walls. That’s why we try to give back to our community every chance we get, whether that’s offering free product demos, off-season Trainer Nights or small-group seminars such as “Bike Maintenance for Women.” Each year we help organize the Tacoma Twilight Criterium, and volunteer free flat repairs at the Tacoma Bike Swap. Our customers are the heart of our business, and the reason we love being in Tacoma.
