About This Activity

May Day Classic 2016
Start/Finish @ Jersey’s Sports Bar

Are you ready for a ride that will challenge your strength & stamina?  The May Day Classic is a challenging recreational ride that is designed for the road cycling enthusiast.  This supported ride has three route options:  a challenging 50 miles, a hard 72 mile route, and an even harder 100+ mile route.  The routes will guide you through the lesser traveled back roads, byways, and bike trails of the South Sound region.  All routes begin and end at Jersey’s Sports Bar in Federal Way. 

A portion of each registration fee and any residual funds & foods will be donated to our benefactors:  The Bicycle Alliance of Washington & The Orting Food Bank.  The mission of the Bicycle Alliance of Washington ("BAW") is to give cyclists a voice in the legislative, planning, and educational processes.  The BAW works with cyclists, clubs, organizations, and governments to increase the freedom and safety of bicyclists statewide.  The Orting Food Bank is a self explanatory vital resource for local families that have found themselves in need in these desperate times.



  • 50 Mile Route:  Travel from Federal Way to Orting & back. 1,200 feet of descending {& climbing} as you pas through, Milton, Edgewood, Auburn, Sumner, Puyallup, and Orting.
  • 72 Mile Route:  Travel from Federal Way to Orting; once there push on to South Prairie, then Wilkeson and then back. 2,200 feet of descending {& climbing}.
  • 100+ Mile Mountain Route:  Not for the faint of heart or soft in the butt. Travel from Federal Way to the Carbon River Entrance of Mount Rainier National Park and back.  Instead of turning around at Orting or Wilkeson you will continue to follow {& climb} the Carbon River Valley to its source. 100+ miles and 4,000 feet of descending {and climbing} as you ride the 100K route in addition to the Carbonado loop.
