Ride Description: 

Come and join us for a 40-mile, vigorous-paced (19mph) ride through beautiful Snohomish County! Let's meet in the north end of the McCollum Park park and ride, across from the swimming pool, at 0935 for a pre-ride brief, then rolling at 0945. Please note: There is no restroom at the start. The route starts with a bee-line through Mill Creek to a bathroom at mile 5. Then we float over the new pavement of Seattle-Hill Road, ride around Silver Lake and hop onto the Interurban trail, passing the shoppers at the Everett Mall to head to the industrial area of Everett, including Boeing. We will stop at Starbucks at mile 24 for coffee. Then get back in the saddle, pedal a little and then wheeee - enjoy a fun downhill and nice climb in Mukilteo through a lovely neighborhood. The route finishes by going through the Lake Stickney neighborhood, the recently opened Maple road connection and the Interurban trail. We will limit speed to 15mph on multi-use paths. Hope you can join us.
