Lucky for you there are still 10 weeks to train! Park to Park is a debut cycling event for Vashon Island coming July 31, with a choice of 24 and 33-mile routes for enthusiasts of all ages. Sustainable Tourism on Vashon is the “tour de force” and all proceeds ($12-25 fee, depending on age and timeliness in registration) go back to this 501(C)3.
This all-day affair lets you jump in at either the North End or Paradise Ridge Park, and is self-paced with two suggested routes. If you deviate, there’s no cycling police, folks! The main purpose of the event is to get people to recreate on Vashon in a sustainable way.
For all the spandex-clad, uber game-faced cyclists that hit Vashon’s windy roads each weekend, this event welcomes off-island groups as readily as banana seat-straddling pedalers. Learn all the details at http://www.parktopark.org. And have fun!
Thanks to Krista Black for catching this classic and oh so Vashon sign, posted in the Village Green bathroom above the sink. Where do we start with this one? Do we have that many weed smokers hovering round the Green that it necessitates a bong water dumping sign, really? Wouldn’t they just pour it into the bushes or onto the ground? And who in the world is going to tote around a BONG?
Really? Wow. Who knew?
