Bike Riding - Summer Bucket List

Went for a bike ride on Sunday morning before it heated up. It still quite warm when we started.  It was a request on our Bucket List.  We rode the cascade trail.  We parked in Sedro Woolley and started the trail. We ran into quite a few people walking their dogs and a few bike riders.

We think we road about 12 miles round trip.  Kevin liked it because it combined geocaching and bike riding.  I liked it because it was nice and level.  We saw lots of different things - horses, pig and piglets, turkey, lots of cows, and even an EAGLE.
The Cascade Trail follows the Skagit River along an old rail bed of the Burlington Northern line, between Sedro-Woolley and Concrete. The trail parallels State Route 20 through cultivated fields, open space, scattered woodlands and river bottoms. The nearby river provides for some great fishing and nice river views, as well as scenic vistas of Sauk Mountain and other Cascade Range peaks. - Trail Link
