Earthworks Tour Inaugural Ride
April 21, 2012 by Mark
On Saturday, June 2nd, the City of Kent in Washington will be hosting “Earthworks Tour Inaugural Ride” starting from Herbert Bayer Earthwork located at 742 East Titus Street located in Kent, Washington. This event begins at 9am sharp.
This new event requires riders who wish to participate to grab a helmet, a bicycle, and come out to join the fun. There are three levels of riding – easy, intermediate, and advanced. This is a family friendly event with art installations and activities along the way. This is a new cycling route organized by the Kent Arts Commission that connects four landscapes within the “Green River Valley” area. Three of the four areas have been designed by artists, and the fourth was designed by Robert Morris from Herbert Bayer Artworks, and Lorna Jordan from Waterworks gardens. The easy ride is an 8 mile loop; the intermediate is 20 miles almost flat, the advanced ride adds an extremely steep hill that adds an additional 3 miles.
Along this ride there are features that cyclists may wish to dismount and walk through. The earthworks tour connects with the Interurban Trail and is the starting point of all the races. Along the way there will be environmental art displays and interactive events for families to check out. After the bike ride, everyone is welcome to an Earthworks Tour which will cover the permanent bike trails that will remain open to the public to tour at their leisure.
Print companies may have prepared much of the signage and advertising materials for this event. For more information, please visit the Earthworks Tour website or call the Kent City Hall at 253-856-5200.
