11:13 am July 24th, 2013

As many as 800 bicyclists are expected to pedal through Mount Rainier National Park, Eatonville and other parts of southeast Pierce County on Thursday during RAMROD, the annual 152-mile recreational bike ride that organizers call the premiere one-day cycling marathon in the Pacific Northwest.
In its 30th year, RAMROD ((Ride Around Mount Rainier in One Day) is sponsored by Redmond Cycling Club. The day-long ride starts and finishes in Enumclaw. In between will be a snack and bathroom stop in Eatonville, where food, beverages and a bank of portable toilets will be available 33 miles into the ride.
Participants will leave Enumclaw starting at 5 a.m. and are expected to finish no later than 8 p.m.
Due to safety concerns and to minimize the ride’s impact on traffic and visitors at Mount Rainier National Park, the number of riders participating in the non-competitive, recreational ride has been limited to 800. All of the entries have been filled, according to Redmond Cycling Club.
