This ride will meet at Donovan Park, located at the intersection of Friday Creek Rd. and Parson Creek Rd. The ride will be about 2/3‘s paved, and 1/3 gravel road. We‘ll park at the county park, ride North and loop the lake, then make our way to Barrel Springs Rd. We‘ll hit the gravel climb up to Samish Overlook, where we‘ll take a snack and photo break. We‘ll enjoy the gravel descent back to Barrel Springs, and return to the park via Woods/Colony Rd. Bring a bike capable of riding on hard packed gravel and be prepared for several short steep climbs. The view is worth the climb. The route is about 30 miles. I expect to take about 3 hours to do the whole thing. This will be a stick-together ride. We‘ll average 12 mph on the pavement, and each do the climb to the overlook at our own pace, with a sweeper riding with the last person so no one is dropped. Please be capable of making the climb, and please be prepared to ride on a gravel road with some bumps. Dress warm.
This ride will start and end at Donovan Park, at the intersection of Parson Creek Rd. and Friday Creek Rd. The ride will go North to Bellingham, climb the Yew Street Hill to Whatcom Falls Park, then take the rail-trail and lettered streets to the waterfront. From there we‘ll loop through Fairhaven on the South Bay Trail and return utilizing the Interurban Trail to reconnect with the Old Samish Highway. The total ride is about 37 miles, with about 2050 feet of climbing. We‘ll take most of the middle of the day to do it, averaging between 10 and 15 mph. I expect the ride to last about 5 hours. I‘m limiting the number participants (if there are any) to six people, because I don‘t want to crowd the trails and I don‘t want to lead a large group through downtown. There are many facilities along the route, as well as an outhouse at the beginning and end. Be prepared to ride on hard packed rail-trail, and city streets with car traffic for portions of the route. We‘ll ride together with frequent regroups, and a sweeper riding with the last person. Dress for cold weather. Stops will be by consensus.
