300k Artist Point Peace Arch
The SIRs put on a great 300k in Whatcom county (furthermost north/west part of WA state). It was my longest ride, and my first 300k. The first 100k led to a 5000' climb to "Artist's Point" flic.kr/s/aHsjA7EhD5 nestled between Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan. From there, we headed north to the Canadian border, and West to Peace Arch Park at the border crossing and the Pacific Ocean. After a nice jaunt along the coast, we headed back home. I suffered on the last 100k with a left knee that wasn't cooperating, and a front derailer that broke after the Baker climb. I mustered that last 50 miles, however, and enjoyed the company of new SIR friends.
