Mount Baker 2018

Post by stephane » Sun Jan 28, 2018 7:55 pm

Hi everyone,

The 3rd annual Mount Baker ride will be on the weekend of August 25-26 this year. This is an epic ride over 2 days and 350+ kms with 1 night in Glacier WA. We take the Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen ferry, ride through rolling pastoral scenery, majestic subalpine forest, up a huge mountain, and then to Anacortes WA to catch the ferry back to Victoria. It is awesome trip and definitely one of, if not the highlight of my cycling year in 2017. Garth can confirm just how much fun it was too.
Last year we had a group of 6 which worked very well, and we already have 4 signed-up for 2018. Accommodation options are limited in Glacier and we will be booking a place soon, so please post here or email me at teachermantran@gmail.com if you are interested.

Mount Baker 2018 update

Hi everyone,

So the date is set (Aug 25-26) and we have 11 riders signed up as well as a few other "maybes". All committed riders either have accommodation or are actively looking for a place to stay in Glacier where our base camp will be. There is no real limit to how many folks can come, but anyone who is planning on joining should make sure to find lodgings in Glacier. Airbnb is the best bet as there are no hotels in the area. If you are thinking of coming and have not let me know, please post here or email me at teachermantran@gmail.com.

Stéphane
