The tulips are in full bloom at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm, so here’s a bike ride on the most direct rural route to visit the farm during its festival. But this is also a shakedown ride for another event four months in the future – the total eclipse of the Sun on August 21. The Wooden Shoe fields are well within the “Path of Totality” for the solar eclipse, and the farm is offering camping for the eclipse at $20/night, with each site holding two tents and four people. You must be in the path of totality to see the Sun’s corona in all its glory. Even at a viewing spot just outside the path (like Canby), the corona will not be visible – being overwhelmed by the thin sliver of full sunlight still getting through. Admission to the Tulip Festival is $5. This is an out-and-back ride to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm, 33 miles down and 66 miles roundtrip, with about an hour spent at the farm itself. For the start of the ride meet by the baseball diamond at Glenwood City Park.
