Flying Wheels weaves its way through Western Washington’s Snoqualmie Valley. This fertile valley is home to many organic farms producing some of the area’s highest quality produce, meats and cheeses. You will spend your day rolling from the valley floor to the ridges that define this beautiful place, a peaceful getaway not far from the city.
The 2017 route takes us back to Snohomish County and includes beautiful rural riding, scenic views, well stocked rest stops and plenty of climbing to get you in shape for the rest of your summer riding season. All levels of riders are welcome, with route options ranging from 23 to 100 miles.
The ride ends with a Finish Line Festival in King County's Marymoor Park featuring bike-themed exhibitors, a Schooner Exact beer garden and a free finisher's meal from one of our onsite vendors.
Who does your registration support?
Did you know Flying Wheels is a fundraiser? Your registration fee helps Cascade provide bicycle education programs for children, families, school groups and everyone else who wants to ride a bike. It also helps us advocate for safer, more connected bicycle infrastructure throughout the state and region. And thanks to you, we’re able to offer fun and challenging riding events and free group rides every day of the year! Your participation truly helps improve lives through bicycling.
Our events are made possible with support from the local communities through which we ride. In addition to supporting Cascade’s programs, your registration fee helps Cascade give back to these communities and the organizations that thrive there. We’re grateful for all their continued support.
One of our partners on this event is Carnation Farms. Carnation Farms uses its rich historical legacy and distinct 818-acre property to provide unique hands-on, experience-based educational opportunities. Their programs empower children and visitors alike, provide a sense of community, and help build a healthier, brighter future. To learn more, join their mailing list and a $5 donation will be made to Carnation Farms in your honor: www.carnationfarms.org.
