Thanks Given'er @ Fort Nugent Park

The best new venue in the Cascade Cross quiver for a number of reasons, the double-header at Fort Nugent Park is hosted by our friends in the Whidbey Island Bicycle Club and the gracious City of Oak Harbor. This twisty, hilly, challenging course was discovered and designed by Brad Nelson, who was the winner of the Mens B category in 2013, SS Men overall in 2014, and the proud manager of the new branch of Skagit Cycles in Oak Harbor.

The park includes wide trails as part of an 18-hole golf course (think Cornwall), abundant parking, good bathrooms, and a HUGE kids playground. Definitely worth the 1 hour drive from Bellingham and a fun way to expand the range of this local series!
