Nooksack Loop Trail – Full

I’ve written about the Nooksack Loop Trail (NLT) before here & here,  and also likely mentioned it elsewhere.  It’d be a great trail to have running around Whatcom County, just don’t see it ever materializing.  So until never arrives, I will just keep riding my version of the loop trail.  My version essentially follows the trail proposed way back in 1973, but I use whatever roads and trails approximate the …

Lakes Loop

I find that loops are just the way to go and this loop turned out to be one of my favorites.  I’ve done the normal all pavement Lakes Loop a few times, but the addition of some gravel roads, trails, and a summit really make this ride something different.  Different in this case means a long ride with a little hiking that rewards with some great views. Like other loops …

Noon Road Loop

I had hopes of doing something with a little intensity today, like the Reese Hill Loop.  I also had hopes for one of these Sundays to be a warm sunny Sunday where I could take my Schwinn Racer on a nostalgia ride along some easy peasy path.  Instead, it was another cold Sunday where it was clear until the sun came up, but then clouds rolled in to steal the …

Tour de Lake Whatcom

A few years back I did the real Tour de Whatcom and it was a fun experience, one that I will likely do again and again and again.  But I’ve also had this other route in my head for awhile and have just been biding my time until conditions were right.   And by conditions I mostly mean, my condition.  When would I be in condition enough to ride a 30 …

Trash Tuesday

It’s been raining litters of kittens and puppies here lately so I couldn’t resist a potentially rainless morning commute.  Even being Trash Tuesday, it was still a nice commute and it was Whitey’s first.  Whitey is a nimble bike so dodging trash dumpsters was a non-issue.

 

Update – commuted several more times since this trash Tuesday post, but realized yesterday that I failed to mention Watchout Wednesdays.  Where you watch out for all the people who don’t put away trash and recycling bins on Tuesday.
