B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County 

McClinchy Mile Bicycle Ride 

Sunday, April 29, 2018 

Arlington, Washington

Loops of 28, 34, or 44 miles or ride multiple loops for 62 or 106 mile century rides.

Beautiful scenery, flat or hilly options and burger and a beer at the end (or in between loops if you prefer). Register in advance, or on the day of the ride (but then the burger & beer cost extra).

McClinchy has been hosted by B.I..K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County for more than 35 years. It is our major fundraiser, and all proceeds go back into local bicycling. In 2017, in addition to supporting our club, we gave $5,000 in grants for bike-related projects in Snohomish County. We regularly fund Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop in Everett and bike helmets for low income kids served by Christmas House.
