CTS Blue/Green #4: Woodinville - Snohomish
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Our fourth ride is asking you to stretch out a bit, adding some mileage and climbing. After we warm up on some flat areas in and around Woodinville, we'll be climbing over the ridge to the east and then dropping into the Snoqualmie River Valley and riding some rollers and fun flats into the town of Monroe, where we'll have a rest stop at Tye Lake Park at 26 miles. Then we do the long easy rise of Old Snohomish Monroe Road to Snohomish, where we'll stop for water and food at the Haggens at 35 miles. After Snohomish, we'll do some climbing to Maltby for our last rest stop at Maltby Park at 44 miles. Then it's the fun stretch of rollers along Paradise Lake Road and Mink Road before a final climb back to the west and the drop into Woodinville.
* There is no restroom or water at the ride start, but there is a rest stop/water stop at Mile Point 1 at Wilmot Gateway Park. The next rest/water stop is 25 miles on. Bathrooms, food and water are available at the Haggens stop. Port-a-lets are available at Maltby, but the water fountain may not be working. Please, bring two bottles so you have enough to drink between stops.
* A portion of this ride will be on a multi-use trail. We'll limit our speed on the trail to the legal maximum (usually 15 mph.)
