Weekend getaway: Tour De Kitsap

What: Hop in the saddle and ride your bike on courses of 32, 46, 71 or 100 miles as you visit Seabeck, Port Gamble, Poulsbo, Keyport and other places in Kitsap County. The 17-year-old ride ends in Old Town Silverdale.

When: Sunday, start between 7 and 10:30 a.m.

Where: Silverdale Beach Hotel, 3073 N.W. Bucklin Hill Road, Silverdale.

Getting there: From state Route 16 head north on state Route 3 in Bremerton. Take the Newberry Hill Road exit and continue on Silverdale Way. Turn right on Bucklin Hill Road. The hotel will be on your right.

Cost: $30

Of note: There will be refreshment stops along the route. There will not be a bike rodeo at the event this year. The Silverdale Beach Hotel will have a spaghetti dinner for riders on Friday night. The course closes at 4 p.m. so organizers recommend an early start. Each route will be patrolled. The courses are marked. The ride is considered a good training ride for the Aug. 22-23 Rapsody Ride, which starts and ends in Tacoma.
