Tour De Dungeness bike races back for 21st year

Sequim’s premier annual bicycle racing event is back for its 21st season, complete with a new start/finish line.

The 21st-annual Tour De Dungeness is set for two Saturdays — March 10 and March 17 — with an expected field of 400-500 riders from across Washington state and Canada.

Riders in multiple categories compete on a 12-mile course that includes Lotzgesell, Cays, East Anderson, Sequim-Dungeness Way, Woodcock and Kitchen-Dick roads.

Races start at 9:45 a.m. each day and last until late afternoon — rain or shine.

Minor traffic delays are expected in the area through the afternoon as riders complete the 12-mile circuit.

“Use caution, be patient and let’s show them that we are a bicycle-friendly community,” race organizer Mike Van Doren said.

The race’s new start/finish line is at Dungeness Community Church, 45 Eberle Lane, just off Sequim-Dungeness Way.

To register or to get more information, call Van Doren at 360-775-7796, or 360-417-5257 after 5 p.m.
