Easter Tulip Ride
About 20 cyclists joined me and co-leader Bruce Zunser (thanks Bruce!) on the Skagit Flats & Tulip Fields ride yesterday.
We spun through the quiet Fir Island fields, had lunch at the nice Rexville Grocery, then braved a bit of a headwind to end our tour among the tulip fields and the long lines of cars.
Fortunately, on the bikes, we could just zip by the car traffic. Added bonus: they only charge you to park a car, so our visit to the fields was free!
Here are some photos from the day:
At the start of the ride, we welcomed two visitors from Vancouver, B.C. (in green). My co-leader Bruce (behind them, on right), and new leader Edie (front right) helped get the group ready to roll.
We posed for photos and muddied our cleats on a visit to the tulip fields.
Great shot by co-ride leader Bruce Zunser with the old barn offsetting the colorful tulips.
A handy fence gave us free bike parking while we walked the tulip fields.
Couldn’t resist posing for a shot with Susie in front of this colorful scene.
The tulip bloom is early this year, so get up there soon, before they fade.
