This page is meant to act as a reference for biking around Parkland and the Tacoma area. It offers maps with various locations such as parks, recreation sites, beaches, bike paths, grocery stores, and museums. Though bike infrastructure in the Tacoma area is not highly developed, it is possible and safe to bike to the majority of locations. These interactive maps attempt to show the fastest and safest way to bike to their locations. The Bike Co-op is constantly working to improve these routes and all input is welcome! Feel free to email us at Bikecoop@plu.edu with any suggestions or questions.
