McClinchy Mile Ride March 20, 2016
See you Sunday for our classic McClinchy Mile Bicycle Ride in Arlington, Wash.
Enjoy "Self-Guided Saturday" rides on last year's Oso Strong route, or on the Centennial Trail
B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County invites you to explore the peaceful river valleys, rolling hills and picturesque farms of Snohomish County. Ride a 34 mile flat and scenic loop to Stanwood or choose the more challenging 48 miles of rolling hills to Machias via Granite Falls.
There's an extension option from Stanwood so you can ride 52 miles, or all three loops for an early season century of 101 miles.
Food stops and SAG support on all routes.
BIKES Club of Snohomish County has hosted McClinchy Mile for more than 30 years. Our 2014 ride out of Arlington was one week prior to the Oso landslide that killed 43 people nearby. Our 2015 event was a memorial to that tragedy.
In 2016, we return to "McClinchy Classic" routes that we've hosted out of Arlington since 2005. Earlier McClinchy Mile events were based out of Monroe, Wash.
Event proceeds support B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County, which offers year-round rides and grants in our community.
