When: Friday, June 25,[masked]:00 PM

One of our members suggested a trip (thank you Tim), which I have modified a little bit to better meet my schedule and make less need of using a car. I will update with a route map, and suggested gear list as we get closer to the date of the trip.http://files.meetup.com/1212132/Whidbey_SanJuan_BikeTour2010Route.dochttp://benedict.isomedia.com/homes/saul/Biketouring/BikeTouring.htm
Friday night camp at South Whidbey State Park or at the Island County Fairground, TBD. Saturday morning, ride over to the ferry in Anacortes. Some of us would ride up from the ferry dock in Clinton from Mukilteo, others would probably drive.
Saturday morning we board the ferry at Anacortes. Stop at Friday Harbour. Ride 3/4 of the way around San Juan Island. Sleep over at San Juan County Campground.
The next morning we will pack up and head to Friday Harbour, take the ferry to Orcas Island. Ride around Orcas and then take the ferry back to Anacortes on Sunday afternoon.
Then ride back to the cars at South Whidbey.
We plan on having on using Panniers and having Saul pull a trailer to haul some of our camping gear (and some beers) to the campground ahead of time for us. This way we will not need to lug as much gear around with us.
Should be a great time with around 130 to 150 total miles spread out over the two days.
Let me know if you would be interested in doing this absolutely beautiful ride.
