For me one of the best parts of summer are the bike camping trips (inspired by the Rivendell/Petersen S24O concept). I love loading up and setting off for a weekend destination, often exploring new places and revisiting favorite places.
This photo was taken on Whidbey Island along a dike. I was riding with the group but saw a little perch I could stop and stand on taking in the riders and the scenery. This particular trip was a 4th annual event and we had almost 50 riders meet in Seattle with their gear and ride 40 miles to South Whidbey State Park.
