350 bicyclists coming to PT


As a heads up for drivers

In case you wonder about all the bicyclists on the roads starting on July 9th, BRNW (Bicycle Rides Northwest) has announced that BRNW Washington 2022, the “Olympic Dreams,” tour, will be cycling through the Olympic Peninsula region July 9-16. The week-long, fully supported road-bike event will start and end in Port Townsend, and will follow a highly scenic, roughly out-and-back route that will include overnight stays in Port Townsend, Port Angeles, at Salt Creek County Park, and in Forks.

The cyclists are expected to congregate at the Fairgrounds on July 9th.

Important!

PLEASE, Share the Road politely with All cyclists on our local roads.If you are one yourself, you will know that drivers can be aggressive or, to give the benefit of the doubt, clueless. Please be mindful as a driver and as a cyclist

Ride Details

“We know this volume of cycling traffic will impact users of the ODT and local roads,” Moore says, “and we’ve stressed to our riders that this is a popular, multimodal route. We want them to enjoy it without detracting from others’ use. It’s a tour, not a race, and we encourage riders to be polite, take their time and enjoy everything along the day’s route. We welcome local residents to meet our riders, drop by our route stops, and enjoy the energy level of an event of this size.”
