CATS Magnuson #3: Everett-Mukilteo Loop
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Third in an annual series of training rides designed to help ready riders for large events (STP, RSVP, HPC, etc.). Rides will increase in distance and elevation gain each week.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS WEEK THE RIDE BEGINS AT THE LYNNWOOD P&R - NOT MAGNUSON PARK.
Directions to the start:
From I-5 northbound out of Seattle. Take exit 181A, 44th Ave W, turn left on 44th Ave W, turn left again on 200th St SW (1st light) and left again on 46th Ave W. Turn left into parking lot before the freeway carpool on ramp. Unfortunately there is no bathroom. There is a Chevron gas station 1 block away.
From north on I-405 or south from Everett on I-5, take I-5 south towards Seattle, take exit 181, 196th St SW (west bound toward Edmonds), turn left at 48th Ave W. Forty-eighth ends in the parking lot. Continue left through the parking lot to the east end.
The ride starts and ends on the Interurban Trail which goes along the southeast side of the parking lot. We will head north along the Trail to Everett, where we turn south to Mukilteo (rest stop at Mukilteo Lighthouse Park). We'll climb Mukilteo Speedway and descend to Picnic Point before turning east for our return to the P&R.
Riders must be self-sufficient and be able to ride in groups. We will maintain a strict brisk pace (16-18 mph on the flats). Bring spare tubes, tools, etc. and if wet, fenders would be appreciated. We plan to leave promptly at 9:00 AM.
