Mt. Baker Hill Climb 2012

A new addition to our annual cycling calendar, this ride took us from the Nooksack River Valley with it’s mossy stands of cedar, fir and maple to the cloudswaddled snow and rock of Artist Point 40km and 4300 vertical feet later. The road was closed to vehicles for the event, so it was just the sound of whirring gears, wheezing riders, and the occasional roadside musician to break the silence. Loads of fun on the descent as well. A very good time.
