Seas, Trees, Pie Bike Ride is on the way

Cyclists of all ages will take to the roads as part of the Whidbey Camano Land Trust’s third annual Seas, Trees & Pie Bike Ride next Sunday.

The ride has three routes: a family-friendly, five-mile loop; a 10-mile; and a 20-mile loop that will take cyclists all throughout Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve and the surrounding area.

Pies from Whidbey Pies await those who cross the finish line of the non-competitive ride.

“Its really geared towards everyone because of the various distances,” Danielle Bishop said.

Bishop has worked with the Land Trust for 12 years and recently switched from being a land protection specialist to a donor relations role. The trust protects land all over Whidbey and Camano Islands.

About 60 cyclists have taken part in the ride for the last two years.

The goal of the ride is to showcase some of the land that the organization protects.

“The idea is that we really try to draw people out to a really cool and beautiful place on Whidbey Island. … All of the routes will go past about 28 properties that we’ve protected through easements or acquisitions,” Bishop said.

Most of the cyclists are locals, Bishop said, although there are some island visitors who do their ride with family and friends.

The ride starts and ends at the birding platform on State Highway 20, across from Crockett Lake. Interested cyclists are asked to register online by July 20. The ride starts at 10 a.m. on July 22.

The Whidbey Camano Land Trust is a nonprofit nature conservation organization that actively involves the community in protecting, restoring and appreciating the important natural habitats and resource lands that support the diversity of life on our islands and in the waters of Puget Sound.
