Lots of work and planning have gone into the exciting summer ride to 8 wonderful lavender farms in the Sequim Valley on Saturday, August 5, 2017! Volunteers will be staffed at each of these farms with their “SAG stops” providing all the help and food to meet any cyclist’s need. The ride will be lots of fun for all levels of cyclists. Come and experience the “sweetest ride in the Pacific Northwest” now in its 5th season!
Here are the eight farms that will be participating in 2017:
Minds and bodies come together at George Washington Inn in mid January and start planning for the upcoming ride, which is scheduled for August 5, 2017. The second weekend of August, known as the Pedal Power Weekend, incorporates both the Tour de Lavender and Ride the Hurricane. Each year feedback is received from the growing number or riders, who love to return and invite their friends to come with them to ride the Olympic Discovery Trail out to the famous lavender farms of the Sequim Valley with additional options for the serious cyclist.
We appreciate your suggestions and try to incorporate as many of them as we can in making an even better experience for the hundreds who now love to experience the Olympic Peninsula in an amazing panorama of snow-capped mountains, blue ocean and hospitable lavender farms. Mark your calendars now, come early and enjoy our million acre national park and let’s experience another great ride out to the farms and up into the hills this summer!
Volunteers and lavender farmers met today to brainstorm and celebrate this past year’s successful ride to the farms. Each year we find ways to improve and make our beautiful Sequim-Dungeness Valley farms with their unique link to the Olympic Discovery Trail an amazing destination.
260 riders in all…record registration again in our 3rd year!
