Spring has sprung! Let’s get out there and ride our bikes amongst the beautiful flowering trees. There’s still a lot of green on the greenway, but it’s joined by red, pink, yellow, and orange right now.
Hey, did you know it Greenwood Park used to be a commercial nursery and greenhouse? How fitting because we’ll ride five miles to Sky Nursery to look at even more spring blooms.
Then let’s hang out at Sky Nursery for about an hour before heading back south. Sky’s coffee stand features organic, fair trade espresso beans from Burlington’s Fidalgo Bay Coffee Roasters and pastries from local bakeries. And from the Sky Gardening Calendar, April is the month to start planting carrots, beets, leeks, Oriental greens as well as summer bulbs like dahlia, gladiolas, and lilies. Or swing by the end of the “Make Your Yard Wildlife Friendly” seminar.
Children (attached in bike seats, trailers, trailer bikes, shared tandem bike) are always welcome!
Helmets are a must for every head on our rides.
