We all bike Tacoma. And Tacoma has a lot to offer when it comes to cycling. This website is meant to be a gathering space for all organizations and people who ride bicycles or would like to learn more about how to get around Tacoma and Pierce County on two (or three) wheels. Whether you live here, are thinking about moving, or are just passing through, you’ll find plenty to do on your bicycle. This is a publicly populated website so if you have a bicycle-related event – ride, advocacy, educational or celebratory – in Tacoma, add it here!
