Ride Description: 

Enjoy an almost traffic free out and back scenic ride on the Centennial Trail from Snohomish to the trail’s north end at the Nakashima farm about 8 miles north of Arlington.  Almost all of the Centennial Trail is built on an abandoned Northern Pacific railroad bed.  Because freight trains can’t climb steep hills, the maximum grade is only 2.2%.  Plan on a group photo on a former railroad bridge above the Stillaguamish River.  The ride is long enough that I suggest you bring food to munch on.  There is a small store at Bryant (miles 21 and 29) where you can purchase food. An RWGPS link is posted below.  If you want a cue sheet, please print one and bring it with you.

 

Public restrooms are available at the start and in Arlington.  Portable toilets are available at the Nakashima farm and at several locations along the Centennial Trail.

 

Please arrive at least 20 minutes before the start of the ride to sign the liability waiver if you didn’t register online and to hear the safety (SMART) briefing. Please register for this ride using the Register Tab.  If you cannot make the ride, you do not need to unregister. 

Be sure to bring a spare tube as well as the tools and knowledge to fix a flat.  If the roads are wet please have fenders with long mud flaps or plan on riding at the end of the line.

Ride Cancellation: Should conditions call for a cancellation, a cancellation notice will be posted in the comment section below at least two hours prior. If cancelled, the ride leader will not be at the start. 

 

We hope you can join us!
