Skagit Bicycle Club Hidden Gems Rides Saturday August 4th

The Skagit Bicycle Club’s Hidden Gems Ride is scheduled for August 4. We will use the same start location as last year, the Home Depot parking lot (2001 Marketplace Dr, Burlington, WA) and the same routes. We will start at 10:00 am. Here are the routes in Ride with GPS:

Long - https://ridewithgps.com/routes/22168395, 43.2 miles, 1,444 feet of elevation gain.

Med - https://ridewithgps.com/routes/22974164, 37.2 miles, 820 feet of elevation gain.

Short - https://ridewithgps.com/routes/23207801, 17.1 miles, 92 feet of elevation gain.

The Mount Vernon/Burlington area has a number of fine establishments for after ride food and drink. If a cold, freshly brewed adult beverage is desired Farmstrong Brewing is just across the river at 110 Stewart Rd, Mount Vernon. If food and drink is the order of the day the Skagit River Brewery at 404 S 3rd St, Mount Vernon is a good choice. The Train Wreck Bar and Grill at 427 E Fairhaven Avenue, Burlington is another excellent choice for food and drink.
