Takin' it to the streets

The change of season has occurred in the Methow Valley...the switch from skis to bikes. Although the Nordic skiing in the Rendezvous is still good and the backcountry skiing is nice,nice many locals have switched over to road, cyclocross and mountain biking. One of the greatest early season cycling treats is the opportunity to ride up the North Cascades Highway before it is open to cars. Don't miss this opportunity to cycle up one of the most gorgeous mountain passes in America...all without a single car, truck, RV or motorcycle to buzz you. Pick a lane, any lane and go. It is truly one of the highlights of spring. The pass is expected to open May 1st. You can follow the road clearing progress here.
