Our first day started with an early hotel breakfast and then a short ride to a ferry, which took us to Whidby Island in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, near the San Juan Islands. Most of our riding was on the island and generally north. We’re positioning ourselves near a pass in the Cascades that we will do tomorrow. For the most part we stuck to wooded back roads and could see huge snow capped mountains in the distance. We passed over a very narrow, high bridge on our way back to the mainland. Sedro-Woolley, where we are tonight, appears to be part of Washington’s agricultural belt, and strawberries are being sold everywhere! Today’s ride was 95 miles with 6,000 feet of climbing.
