NOTE: This ride is now scheduled for Saturday, September 8th, vs. the original date of Sunday, September 9th.
This new ride will cover select scenic routes in both Whatcom and Skagit counties. This ride will take us down Highway 20, towards Anacortes, for a short distance. From this point forward, our fun begins. After visiting the iconic locations of Bow and Edison, we will begin the spectacular Chuckanut Drive, with all its splendid views and twisty-turns. This route is well noted in the travel magazines and is considered a “must see” in Washington State.
From this point we will navigate around Bellingham, passing Lake Padden, while proceeding to the Whatcom Lake Shore Drive. Lake Whatcom is truly a beautiful lake and this route affords the opportunity to enjoy qualities of this lake view drive.
After a short break at Sudden Valley, we will continue our journey, passing several small lakes before coming to the thriving metropolis of Algers. From here we will make our way to Bow where we will stop and enjoy lunch.
We will meet at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 9th, at the Holiday Gas Station & Market. Located on Highway 20, right off I-5 at exit 230 on the left a short distance up the road.
Following a quick driver’s meeting, we will begin our tour. Point of contact for the tour is Tom Millar at 425-623-8181, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
