About the Ride
The Viking Tour is a group ride on the Kitsap Peninsula which will take place on Sunday, May 21st, 2017.
The tour starts and finishes in historic Poulsbo, “Little Norway” at 9 a.m., and is held during the iconic VikingFest carnival and festival. So if you’re an out of towner, plan on coming out Saturday and stay the night to experience Viking Hospitality!
The ride has three different lengths for all riding levels: the “Odin”: a 59-mile journey featuring over 4,000ft of climbs. the “Thor”: a 30-mile ride which is fairly flat and just for those looking to have a bit of fun with a little less challenge and the "Freyja": a 16-mile relaxing ride where you can enjoy yourself without breaking too much of a sweat
We will be introducing a "Poker Run" to the 2017 Viking Tour. All riders who want to participate in this free contest will collect 5 playing cards to make a poker hand over the course of the ride. The object is to have the best poker hand at the end of the ride. Having the best hand and winning is purely a matter of chance so everyone has an equal shot, regardless of cycling level! Awards will be given out to the three best poker hands.
The Viking Tour is meant to be whatever you make of it. Do it for fun, do it to challenge your personal best or do it to win! Whatever your intent, you’ll be glad you came! We encourage professionals, amateurs, recreational riders, clubs & cycling teams to participate. It’s time for all Vikings to trim your beards, shave your legs and get ready to ride.
All profits from the Viking Tour support ongoing efforts of the Poulsbo Rotary Club.Learn More
