I’m pretty much wearing a rut into this route around this mostly north of Bellingham loop. This time riding from my house, rather than downtown Ferndale or somewhere else along the route, today’s ride was a somewhat longer ride at about 50 miles.
I did the loop clockwise which for me had more of the gravel on the latter half of the ride which I like because as I get tired the gravel holds my attention better than a long line of pavement. Also, gravel trails, especially like along the Nooksack, have me moving around on the bike more which keeps me from noticing which muscle is growing sore.
Also of note on today’s ride was the smell of ripening berries. ?
