West Whatcom County Cruise Professional Review and Guide
"Washington's Nooksack River Valley, just south of the Canadian border, is a fertile region of family-run farms, bordered on the east by foothills and on the west by the inland waters of the Strait of Georgia. You'll enjoy riding the quiet country roads, surrounded by fields of berries, grain, and seed potatoes and cows. There's much to see: farms, forests, and towns, with a backdrop of mountains to the east and Puget Sound to the west.
The farms are so charming you'd thing they were created simply for the enjoyment of passing bicyclists. You'll become a connoisseur of barns: traditional wood barns sheltering cows and swallows, old dilapidated structures slowly sinking back in the earth, and new metal ones filled with farm machinery of all shapes and sizes. Terrain: mostly flat. There is a moderate 3-mile climb a few miles before Blaine and some low rolling hills past Birch Bay. Most roads used on this route have little traffic, except between Birch Bay and Blaine."
