Getting ready for big bike event

Yelm Rainier Tenino Trail to be closed next Monday, July 11


Yelm Rainier Tenino Trail between Manke Road SE and Tipsoo Drive SE will be closed on Monday, July 11 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for maintenance.

According to Thurston County, crews will work on the paved trail to repair worn-out sections in preparation for the upcoming Seattle to Portland Bike Ride on July 16 to 17, expected to draw thousands of riders from all over the county.

The event has not happened since 2019 because of the pandemic.

Community members may check the maintenance schedule for changes since the work is contingent on the weather, said the county.
