This tour is for BIKES Club members who are interested in riding some quiet roads through farmlands and small towns in northern Whatcom County. This is a series of day tours, and will be ridden at a touring pace. If you want to ride hard and fast this might not be the tour for you. Regroups as necessary. Riders need to bring flat repair equipment, and the current BIKES club E bike policies will be followed.
There will be some stops for scenery or other points of interest. Food/meals will be purchased at various towns. It is hoped that folks will want to get together for some Happy Hours and/or dinners following the rides.
Some of the rides will require remote starts, i.e. you drive to the start. Start locations will be sent out to registrants along with more details. These are routes are works-in-progress, subject to change.
