Today we biked 75 miles and climb to 4600 feet over loop loop pass. It was quite steep as well so all in all it made for a hard day of biking. We have one more climb tomorrow and then three flat days into Seattle, finishing the ride on Sunday. I can’t believe this is almost over.
Climbing the pass was interesting in that we started almost at Sea level with vegetation that looked like Arizona and finished in a dense pine forest. On the way down we got our first look at the northern cascades which is what we are climbing tomorrow. Quite rugged and still snowcapped, unlike the mountain passes we been climbing over the last several days.
