Ride Description: 

Ride on a island with no ferry trip!  We'll follow the Interurban Trail up to Everett where we'll bike along the lovely Riverfront Trail before  proceeding to the Hwy 2 trestle bike path to make our journey to Ebey Island. You've driven past it on I-5, or over it on Hwy 2 -- now you get to see it up close!  This bucolic semi-rural island is surrounded by the Snohomish River and Ebey Slough.  We'll poke around and enjoy views of cows, horses, orchards, grasslands, and big green pipes.  We'll return to the noise and bustle of Everett and enjoy lunch at The Sisters Restaurant before finishing the long grade back uphill to our starting point.

Bring plenty of water and also money for lunch. Also bring a spare tube and tools for flat fixing.

Come early for the safety briefing -- we'll try to leave promptly at 10am.

Heavy showers or steady rain cancels. If it looks like intermittant light rain showers, I'll be at the ride start and will consult the Dark Sky app to make my decision about riding or not.  Feel free to call me at 425-238-4045 for updates that morning.

This ride is a mentoring opportunity -- please contact the Ride Leader at least two days in advance so that you have time to familiarize yourself with the route.

DIRECTIONS TO START: From I-5 just north of Lynnwood, take the 164th St. SW exit and turn onto 164th heading east towards Mill Creek.  Turn left (north) at the 2nd traffic light after the freeway,  Meadow Road. Turn right at 146th St SW, the  park will be on your right just past 4th Ave. W.
