Marysville-Bellingham bike loop


View Larger Map

While it’s fun to do a bona fide self-supported bike tour, sometimes it’s just awesome to do credit card touring: you bike long and hard, stud that you are, and then relax in a luxurious bath before heading out to a posh restaurant and falling asleep on fluffly pillows.

OK, this weekend’s bike tour from Marysville to Bellingham wasn’t quite that fancy, but it was fun and relaxing nonetheless. Highlights of the trip included the stop at Slough Foods in Edison, the scenic if less than ideal biking on Chuckanut Drive, communing with the deers on Whatcom Drive, and the very pleasant riding on the Centennial Trail. The lowlight of the trip, without a doubt, was running over an indecisive chipmunk that decided it really didn’t really want to cross the road after all.

  1. I saw a post you had posted on the cycling forums a while back and noticed that you had test ridded a 520 and LHT AND lived in the boston metro area. do you know of any shops around boston that carry those that I may be able to test ride?

  2. I got my bike from International Bicycle Centers (in Brighton, I think). I test rode bikes from a couple of stores; I remember testing a few from Ace Wheelworks in Porter Square.

    Good luck!
