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.
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!
