Ride Description: 

"It’s rare to find a town that combines high-level art, artisan food and a peaceful, authentic vibe. Edison is a paradise for all three." 

- Rosemary Ponnekanti, The Olympian (see article linked below)

Join me on a ride to the Bow Farmers Market Holliday Festival. The ride starts at the Lions Park in Mt. Vernon. We will exit Mt. Vernon on the Skagit Riverwalk before continuing along the dike to Conway.  After crossing Fir Island, we will head north for our 1st stop at Bay View State Park.  Our next stop is the Farmers Market Holiday Festival at the Edison school.  There will be food available for lunch/snack (please bring some cash) and free cider. There will be music and 65 vendors offering their handcrafted gifts and food.

Our return takes us through Bow prior to heading south to Mt. Vernon.  Expect head winds on our return. 

Please arrive at 9:45 am to assure you will be ready to ride at 10 am.

Restrooms are available at start, at Bay View State Park (25 miles) and at the Holiday Festival (32 miles).

You are encouraged to pre-register by clicking the red "Register Now" button above. There is no need to unregister if you decide not to ride.

Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Please have full fenders if the roads are wet, or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group.

Note: If weather conditions meet the weather cancellation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions, the Ride Leader will post a ride-canceled note in the Comments section below at least two hours prior to the start and Ride Leader(s) will not be at the start location.

We hope you can join us!
