Ride Description: 

Come and join us each Saturday morning in October, November and December for a ride. Stay fit, and enjoy the beauty and interesting sights in Snohomish County! The routes are about 40 miles each week. The steady and moderate paces ride a little less and the brisk pace rides a little more so that all have an equal ride effort.

Where to find us: Enter the park at the traffic light at the intersection of Fryelands Blvd and Wales St SE. 

This week: There is a restroom at the start. This is a lovely rural route, with some nice climbs, small villages like Wagner, a rest stop at the Sultan Bakery and returning along the Skykomish River.

Steady/Moderate route: 37.4 miles with 1,930 ft of elevation (per RWGPS)

Brisk route: 40.2 miles with 2,148 ft of elevation (per RWGPS)

  • Please be ready to ride at least 10 minutes before the start of the ride to check off your name or sign the waiver and be part of the safety briefing.
