Hi All - I'm going to be visiting the northern Washington area at the end of July and I'll have one day to ride EITHER San Juan or Orcas island and I was looking for recommendations on which one to choose. My tentative plan is to drive up (I'll be riding in Oregon for a couple of days before) to Anacortes and spend the night there, leave the car there and take the bike over on the ferry, ride all day and then head back to Anacortes and drive to Camano Island for a wedding the next day (maybe get a ride in on Camano Island before the wedding...)
Anyway - if anyone has any opinions one way or the other I'd love to hear them. The climb up Mt. Constitution sounds great - I'm a fan of tough climbs. I'd like to get a good long ride in to make it worth the extra few hours of driving I'll need to do to get there. I've never ridden in this area and I'm looking forward to checking it out.
Thanks a lot for any suggestions.
