Always held on the First Sunday in May

May 4th, 2014: 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. Both routes begin and end at Phil’s Bike Shop 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.
