2018 Ride Schedule

Thunder in the Valley | Ride ScheduleEach group ride this year will have a ride captain. It will be this person’s responsibility to plan the route, where we will stop for gas, food, etc. They will also lead the pack.

All rides leave from the Puyallup Nazarene Church at 1026 7th Ave. SW at 8:30AM unless otherwise noted. We meet at 8:15AM for ride instructions before leaving at 8:30AM. Make sure to read How We Ride before you join us.  We do have a waiver form that must be signed by all riders and their passengers.  The form needs to be signed before the start of each riding season.  Riders will need to provide a copy of their license w/endorsement, along with a copy of their insurance and policy number.  If you or your passenger haven’t signed a waiver, be prepared to before the ride.  It is the riders responsibility to update Thunder in the Valley with any changes to their license status and insurance changes.
