Route Information

Stanwood Loop - 33 miles

This is the easiest loop, mostly flat farm roads with a few hills and busy roads to keep it interesting. You'll bike through the Stillaguamish River floodplain, and pass many working dairies and farms. Views (on a good day) of the Olympics and Cascades. Food stop about halfway at Stanwood Middle School.

Granite Falls Loop - 28 miles

This loop is a little shorter, but a lot hillier! Take this on as a challenge if you want a short but harder loop, or tack it on to another loop to add miles. Views of the Cascades as you ride up the South Fork of the Stillaguamish River. Food stop about halfway at Granite Falls City Park.

Lake McMurray Loop - 44 miles

Enjoy maximum scenery and rolling hills on our new loop through rural north Snohomish County, with a bit of Skagit County, too (yes, there is chip seal). You'll start and and on the Centennial Trail. In between, pass lots of farms, horses, and woods. Views of Puget Sound, Olympics and North Cascades. Food stops at mile 15 (optional - adds 2 miles and a short, steep climb) and at mile 22 at the restful Bonhoeffer Botanical Gardens.

Free Family Ride - 8 miles, more or less

Want a ride for the kids or non-cyclists in the family? Join us for a free, escorted ride out and back on the Centennial Trail. We'll offer snacks at the turnaround point at Bryant Station, 4 miles out. You can keep going, or turnaround sooner if needed. The trail is flat and paved. The family ride starts at 11 a.m. - enough time to do one of our loop routes first, if you ride fast. No advanced registration required, but we will have you sign in at the start.
