The day before pump up your tires and check your brakes if you have not been cycling lately. This winter has been warmer, so we will hope for many blooming fields. We will make stops to view the tulip fields but not go into any location that requires a fee. A Coffee stop in La Conner is also planned. If the weather is good we will continue the ride for the full 35+ miles unless everyone wants a shorter route. Roads may be muddy and rough. Bring a snack as we usually eat our full lunch at the end of the ride. Take Exit 226 from I-5 through downtown Mt Vernon; take either of the first two lefts after crossing the bridge, continue one block into the park.
