No Car Tulip Tour

Saturday turned out to be a great day for the Tulip Pedal up in Skagit County. We joined about 700 other cyclists to bike a 20, 40 or 60 mile route around the fields and the greater valley. Good support, nice folks at the rest stops, and a good cause. The cool, cloudy day even turned bright and sunny by the afternoon — can’t ask for more on an April ride.

Here are a couple of images, and one from our later trip to Bellingham, where we found an uber-cool bike rack.

Love the sign.

Beats driving.

We went to Bellingham on Sunday so I could give a presentation on my new book Cool Season Gardener at the fabulous Village Books in Fairhaven, and after the talk, a friend took us to Kulshan Brewery for a great IPA. Check out this bike rack, which comprises their beer garden fence. You could just wheel up and have a beer with your bike!

Great brews, great bike support.

  1. It was a great day for a ride. They advertised it as a 60 mile ride, but it was really about 66. Bonus miles! Sorry I missed you, we started about 8:30. The head wind was a little brutal, but those nice rest stops provided a lot of fuel.
