This weekend we stayed closer to home with the lovely Tour de Peaks century in the Snoqualmie Valley (after a non-bike trip to Whidbey Island for the Coupeville Arts Festival on Saturday).
The ride started and ended in North Bend, of Twin Peaks fame. Between the start and finish we saw lots of horses, llamas, cows and pigs (including Wendy, pictured below, and Horace and Brenda, not pictured, but caught in the act of, shall we say, relations. Loudly).
A rough version of the route is here.
