The Mount Baker Bicycle Club would like to invite our North Puget Sound Bike Alliance partner clubs plus all local friends to the first Hidden Gem ride of 2018!

Join us for your choice of 3 routes in Whatcom County outside of Bellingham, where we’ll tour some of the areas around the Lake Whatcom North Shore, Deming, Mosquito Lake area, Sudden Valley, and various quiet northeast county roads.  Some flat,  some hilly, all lovely.

Meet at 9:30 am at Bloedel Donovan Park to split into ride groups,
collect route map, sign waivers, and check in with ride leaders.

fast: 55 miles, 3300 ft elevation gain, average speed 17-18 mph (due to hills!)

Questions? MBBC president Hilary:

Bloedel Donovan Park is on the west side of Lake Whatcom, accessible from Electric Avenue. Take exit 253 (Lakeway Drive) off I-5, follow Lakeway to the east, then veer left onto Electric Avenue. Bloedel Donovan Park is at 2114 Electric Avenue, on the east side of the street. Meet in the large parking lot near the Community Building. There are restrooms and water in the building.
