We are the fun, friendly, local bike club. We host recreational rides year-round in Snohomish County as well as weekends and tours farther afield. BIKES Club hosts free recreational rides for members year-round, with a focus on fun and friends. Non-members are welcome to visit the club for a ride or a meeting. We organize an annual fund-raising event, the McClinchy Mile, which is open to the public. Proceeds support the club, and grants to bike-related causes.
Club rides range anywhere from 10 to 100 miles in length, with varying levels of difficulty in terms of pace (speed) and terrain (hills!). Upcoming rides and contact information are posted in the club's monthly newsletter, Chainwheel Chatter, and on theRides page. Members also organize multi-day tours. Ride participants are required to wear helmets.
Annual social events include a club picnic, year-end awards dinner, and Bike to Work Day activities. Our meetings often include special speakers and programs related to bicycling.
