I'm offering this ride up as a "potluck" tour, meaning that you can bring whatever you like, and ride as little or as much of it as you like.  I myself will be doing a mix of camping and lodging.  June 3-5 is Bike Travel Weekend (  Email me if you're interested in doing some pre-planning.  I will likely start from Seattle on June 5th, take the ferry to Bainbridge and ride from there to Sequim Bay S.P., which has dedicated hiker/biker camping as well as showers - 55 miles.  The next day (Monday June 6th) I plan to ride to Salt Creek Recreational Area - a county park that has tent sites and showers, passing through Port Angeles - 41 miles.  The following day we will go at least as far as the end of the Spruce RR Trail - 17 miles up from Salt Creek.  From there, a trip out to Rialto Beach, Sol Duc Hot Springs, or a U-turn back to Port Angeles are all options.  N.B.- this tour is loosely planned and the full route is optional so be flexible.  I have only ridden this route between Sequim Bay and Sol Duc Hot Springs, and it's delightful but the weather can be windy and damp.

COGS rides are now open to both members and non-members. Non-members are limited to one “free” ride with the club, after which COGS’ insurance requires they become a member. All persons must register. The number of persons allowed on a ride is left to the discretion of the ride leader.

COVID still remains a dominant health issue for our society. COGS riders are required to follow all state and county health guidelines to protect themselves and others. Regardless of vaccine status, all participants should be healthy and symptom free of COVID or any flu like symptoms. For more information, please see: Riding with COGS Protocols.

NOTE: COGS Rides are limited to members and one time guest non-members. You must register to be permitted to ride. According to the club insurance policy, If you are not a COGS member then you can register and participate in one ride.
