McClinchy Mile Oso Strong Ride

Join B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County in Arlington on Sunday, March 15, 2015 for the annual McClinchy Mile Bicycle Ride.

This year’s McClinchy Mile is a memorial to the people and communities affected by the Oso Landslide. Rider fees will support the Oso-area Whitehorse Trail and bike tourism through the Centennial Trail Coalition and Washington Bikes. McClinchy also supports B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County, which has hosted the event for more than 30 years.

Route options of 34 and 56 miles, out and back on State Route 530 with light traffic. Views of the Stillaguamish River and the Cascades, as well as riding through the landslide area and local memorials.

Unique food stops at Rhodes River Ranch Restaurant in Oso and at Darrington Old School Park. In Oso, warm up inside with Cowgirl biscuits & gravy, fresh cookies, and hot beverages while overlooking an active horse arena. A lunch buffet option will also be available for purchase from the restaurant.

Riders sign-in and start between 8 and 10 a.m. at Haller Middle School, 600 E. First Street, Arlington, WA. Helmets are required for safety.
