May Day Classic

Registration | Map | FAQ | Contact

Always held on the First Sunday in May


My shop has moved to a new location at 3400 SW 320th Street in Federal Way.  Consequently the May Day Classic is moving to a new start/finish location as well.  The May Day Classic is going to start and end at Jersey’s Sports Bar at 35509 21st Ave SW.  Registration at Jersey’s will be open at 6:00 A.M. on 5/1/16.   Our friends at Jersey’s have been kind enough to allow us to use their facilities and parking lot for our May Day Classic event.  This parking lot is twice as big as the previous one we have been using so there should be ample room for all.

May 1st 2016: A Spring Tradition

Presented by Phil’s Bike Shop on the first Sunday in May

Three challenging routes to choose from:

  • 50 Mile Gazebo Route
  • 72 Mile Wilkeson Route
  • 100+ Mile Mountain Route

All three routes will challenge your strength and stamina. The May Day Classic is a challenging recreational ride that is designed for the road cycling enthusiast. This supported ride has three routes which will guide you though the lesser traveled backroads, byways and bike trails of the South Sound region. All routes begin and end at Jersey’s Sports Bar in Federal Way, Washington.

A portion of each registration fee and any residual funds will be donated to our benefactors, BIKE Washington { Bicycle Alliance of Washington} and the Orting Food Bank.  The mission of the Alliance is to give cyclists a voice in the legislative, planning and educational processes. The Alliance works with cyclists, clubs, organizations and governments to increase the freedom and safety of cyclists State-wide.  The Orting Food Bank provides support for those families that are in need of a helping hand.
