BELLINGHAM, Wash. The eighth annual “Tour de Whatcom” is this Saturday beginning at Fairhaven’s Village Green.

The same group that runs the “Ski to Sea” race every year, Whatcom Events, now hosts the “Tour de Whatcom” charity bike ride.

Cyclists at any experience level will travel along 25, 50 and 105 mile scenic routes across Whatcom County to raise money for local schools and charities.

This year’s tour will benefit the Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition.

Last year, the event raised more than $20,000.

People can still register for the family friendly event in person today and on race day.
