McClinchy Mile for BIKES Members Only August 16th

The 2020 edition of the McClinchy Mile will be for BIKES Club members only and will require RSVP with Ride Leaders with no more than 5 total riders per group including the Ride Leader.  There will be no day of event registration, no official rest stops, no route markings and no SAG.  Any after event gathering is up to the Ride Leader and the riders in that group.  Pretty much like a regular BIKES Club ride.  Each route could have multiple pace groups.  This members only event is free for BIKES Club members.  While the McClinchy Mile is essentially an outdoor event, there are still many facets that take place in close quarters and don’t support the social distancing that is important while we work through our current public health crisis.  More details will be made available later both here and in the ride postings on the Calendar page. 

The 5 available routes are available in Ride With GPS.  These routes "MbrsOnly2020" in the title have been revised to reflect pertinent changes for these members only routes.  Availability of the "normal" restrooms and commercial services at the start/finish and along the routes is uncertain and may change.

McClinchy Mile Camano Climb - CANCELLED in 2020

To ensure the health of our riders and volunteers, comply with public health requirements and recommendations, and address the many uncertainties of closed venues and challenging times, the McClinchy Mile Camano Climb Bicycle Ride has been cancelled for 2020. 

Full refunds will be issued to everyone who has preregistered (more information on that is pending).

Since 1982, McClinchy riders have persevered through snow, rain, and beautiful spring weather. This is the first time the event has ever been cancelled. 

B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County and the Stanwood-Camano Kiwanis co-host the event.

About the McClinchy Mile

McClinchy has been hosted by B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County since 1982. It is our major fundraiser, and proceeds go back into local bicycling. In addition to supporting our club, we give grants for bike-related projects such as Everett's Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop and helmets to go with bikes for low income kids at Christmas House each December.

Stanwood-Camano Kiwanis host the Camano Island portion of the year event. The club uses event proceeds for a high school scholarship program. The Kiwanis have hosted the Camano Climb Bike Ride for more than 25 years.

How far is a McClinchy Mile?As far as you want to go on a beautiful spring day. The ride is named after a founding B.I.K.E.S. Club member, Stuart McClinchy, who died too young.

B.I.K.E.S. Club was founded in the 1970s and hosts recreational bike rides year-round for members. To learn more and attend your first ride for free, see our Rides page.
