The rides are awesome. You get to see everything: Mt Baker, Lake Whatcom, valleys, rivers, lush farmland, beaches and Puget Sound all in one fairly level ride. Free pictures too. We will have a special Tour deWhatcom backdrop located in Fairhaven at the Village Green. You can either take your picture with your own camera, or we can take it and send it to you via Facebook. REI & Fairhaven Bike Club will be available for free safety checks and *quick* repairs (parts are at your expense). Motorcycles will be cruising the routes to make sure all are safe. Trucks are on call to pick up anyone needing a lift. $10 surcharge for day-of registrations so please register online. Beautiful ride for a great cause! Celebrate in Fairhaven after.
In 2012 we had 980 riders and raised over $20,000 for
charities plus pledges! This is above and beyond the pledges
that went directly to the "charity of your choice" for each
rider. In 2013, the beneficiary of your ride is the
WMBC-Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition.
From: Matt Durand, President, Whatcom County Mountain Bike Coalition
"We are grateful to be the beneficiary of proceeds from
the Tour De Whatcom and to Whatcom Events for recognizing
our organization; without all of the dedicated community
members contributing to this organization over the years, we
wouldn't have the 50+ miles of mountain biking trails we
currently have access to. This enables our
organization to continue growing and seize on opportunities
that are paramount to making Whatcom County a world class
recreation destination, namely the newly voted on
reconveyance lands and our proposal for expanded mountain
bike access and trails in Larrabee State Park."
Every year the WMBC coordinates hundreds of volunteers amounting to thousands of volunteer hours for the trails in Whatcom County. They have a strong youth involvement and work with the Bellingham School District, Lummi Nation Tribal School, Mt Baker School District, Ferndale School District, Boy Scouts of America for Eagle Scout Projects, among others.
