Washington State Bicycle Travel Photo Sampling: Researching a Bike Tour Guide Doesn’t Look Like Work, Does It?

Wa state_River gorgeEllee Thalheimer, author of the Cycling Sojourner Washington bicycle tour book we’ll be bringing out next spring, is hard at work. That is to say, she and husband Joe Partridge are riding their bikes all over Washington, as are the four Washington state co-authors Katherine Widing, Josh Cohen, Martina Brimmer, and Steve Krippner. They’re mapping, annotating, tasting, sipping, shopping, and photographing along with all the pedaling to make sure they bring you the details you need to plan an amazing bike travel experience.

Ellee sent a few photos from the road we’re sharing to give you a taste of the experience (more to come in future posts).

 You can also catch up with Martina Brimmer of Swift Industries for an introduction to bicycle touring at Island Hoppin’ Brewery on Orcas Island Thursday, Aug. 15, 7-9 pm. She’s working on the San Juan Islands tour that will be included in the book and will share her expertise to help inspire you and get you ready to roll.WA state wheat fields_bike rider on horizon
