Because it’s largely sans hills, the Skagit Valley—that amorphous area bordered by the Chuckanut Mountains to the north, northern Puget Sound to the west, Interstate 5 to the east, and Fir Island to the south—is popular with cyclists, especially the hill-phobic variety. This 51-miler does its best to be as ?at as possible, gaining only about 1300 feet, much of that on a 10-mile loop around the Swinomish Reservation, across the channel from La Conner. (Skip that part and you have a 40-miler that gains only about 800 feet.)
