Point Whitehorn Bike Ride

Ten brave cyclists left Point Whitehorn parking area under stormy looking skies to do an 18.2 mile loop.   We wandered through the perimeter of the refinery near Ferndale on gated roads, ending up riding along Kickerville to Mountain View and Lake Terrell Road. Lake Terrell was the perfect halfway point for a break before returning to Point Whitehorn along a different route.  The final stretch , the abandoned road on which we started out, made for a  dramatic tour through the countryside.  A handful of us chose to walk the trail down to Pt. Whitehorn beach after the ride for an additional two miles of exercise.  The Bleeding Hearts were abundant all along the trail and the beach was beautiful, as usual. As we left the parking lot post-ride a light rain had begun.
