Outdoor adventures, mostly gravel rides, but not always

Skagit Valley

An easy tour of flat and windswept farm fields covered in tulips and daffodils with barns galore

white roads and yellow flowers

Every April Skagit Valley fields explode in brilliant colors thanks to the very special crops of daffodils and tulips. We arrived during peak daffodil season, just ahead of the multi-colored landscape generated by the tulips.

Vashon & Maury Islands

A cafe ride of rolling hills, quiet roads, and well-maintained trails on two island of Puget Sound

Switchback down to the water from Point Robinson

Blue skies and warming temperatures promised ideal riding conditions so I chose to venture to Vashon Island to tour the farms, coffee stands, and bakeries. I started with a route from the Seattle International Randonneurs, 2020 WTS #9: Vashon Island, and modified it slightly to add some gravel and a trip through Dockton Forest, both of which turned out to be great additions to the route.
