Each year, Ski to Sea is a multisport relay race from Mt. Baker to Bellingham Bay. In the following photographs, shot on May 29, Ski to Sea participants make their way through the fourth, fifth and sixth legs of the race: road bike, canoe and cyclocross bike. Bikers are seen wrapping up the 42-mile fourth leg from the Shuksan Maintenance Shed on Mount Baker Highway, to the fifth leg, which began at Riverside Park in Everson. Canoers then plop their boats in the water and begin paddling 18.5 miles down the Nooksack River. From there, cyclocross bikers take the team's time chip and begin the sixth leg: a 14-mile ride from Hovander Homestead Park in Ferndale to Zuanich Point Park in Bellingham.
