BICYCLING — Bicyclsts are the first to get access to bare pavement on the North Cascades Highway west of Winthrop each spring as snow plows clear Highway 20 for the summer season.

The road crews are over Washington Pass and the road could be cleared in days. But over the weekend, cyclists were having a ball, reports the Methow Valley Sport Trails Association.
