SEQUIM — More than 400 racers are expected to compete as cycling returns to the Olympic Peninsula with the 20th annual Tour de Dungeness race on March 11 and 18.
Riders in different categories will compete on a 12-mile course which includes Lotzgesell, Cays and East Anderson roads, Sequim-Dungeness Way, then Woodcock and Kitchen-Dick roads.
