The picnic may be over ... 

May be an image of 11 people, people sitting, people standing and outdoors  May be an image of 5 people    May be an image of 3 people, people sitting and outdoors    May be an image of 1 person and outdoors 

... but the fun isn't!

There's still lots of great riding this summer. Here are a few rides coming up. For ALL the rides and ALL the details, see the calendar.

11 August: Giro di Sentieri. (Ask RL Rick what the heck it means!)

13 August: Burlington - Lake Samish Loop. (Quiz: What's the difference between Lake Samish and Lake Sammamish?)

16 August: Artist Point, Mount Baker. (Yes, the views make this climb well worth it. AND you get to enjoy a nice downhill for dessert.)

17 August: Jack's Mid-Week Fitness Loop. (A nice short steady pace ride just to get your legs moving and your lungs breathing fresh air. What could be better?)

23 August: Hurricane Ridge. (A true mountain top experience!)
