I trust that you all have been enjoying the fine summer weather.
At the Bicycle Alliance of Washington, we are running a Kickstarter campaign to support the development and publication of a Washington State bike touring guide book- Cycling Soujourner. I’ve already kicked down a $75 pledge for the campaign and i strongly encourage you to make a pledge of any amount you can afford.
Here is a blog post about the book project written by our Executive Director, Barb Chamberlain.
There is also a great educational opportunity coming up next week; an introduction to bike touring at Island Hoppin’ Brewery on Orcas. Martina Brimmer of Swift Industries will be presenting from 7:00-9:00PM on August 15th.
Here is a blog post that i wrote about a tour that Tiva and I took in the San Juans and Gulf Islands last summer.
