Tacoma Bremerton Loop – 120 miles

A three day ride. Overnight stops in Sumner and Bremerton. Each day is close to 40 miles.

Note: looking at the elevation changes, I think they include the underwater topology. For instance, the Kingston ferry ride shows an elevation drop of 600 feet, which is the actual depth there.


Whole loop – says 127 miles, but includes about 8 miles on ferries, corrected elevation gain 4100 feet

  • 40 miles, corrected elevation gain 1450 feet (two drops removed – bridge and ferry)
