Here’s a tour for those longing for the open road—the flat, open road. It’s 35 miles of farm roads, punctuated by a visit to the small tourist town of La Conner. Former Midwestern farm kids will feel at home, and city dwellers will definitely know they’re not in urbanity any more. Park at convenient Edgewater Park, just across the river from downtown Mount Vernon. It’s free, easy to find, and very accessible to Interstate 5. Bike across the rusty bridge and cycle through the town’s homey business district, then in a few minutes you’re south of town, riding along a dike that protects the residences from the annual rising of the Skagit River.
