SUNNY SUNDAY SITKA CYCLING: The e-mail announcement said “We go rain or shine, unless it’s a super gully-whumper,” but it turned out to be a nice day for a bike ride around Sitka on Sunday, June 3, when about a dozen cyclists gathered for an informal Tour de Sitka. The group met at the Sea Mart grocery store at 10 a.m. and rode out to the end of Halibut Point Road, where they stopped for a group picture. The then rode back into town and over the O’Connell Bridge to Japonski Island, where they grabbed brunch at the Nugget Restaurant in the Rocky Gutierrez Airport. Then it was back to Sea Mart, unless individual riders wanted to have the option of riding out to the end of Sawmill Creek Road first. The Tour de Sitka is a tradition started several years ago by Sitka teachers John and Cheryl Hedden, who since have retired and moved south. According to Jeff Budd, 12 riders participated this year, including one person on a single-speed cruiser and two high school students. He said the ride without the Sawmill Creek Road leg was about 14 miles, and it was a “fun group.” (Photo courtesy of Corrie Bosman)
