McClinchy Mile Bike Ride April 28

Registration soon for this year's McClinchy Mile Bicycle Ride - the price increase $5 on April 15 and another $5 if you wait until the day of the ride. We invite everyone to join us for the free family ride on April 27.

Club members have received the club discount code for McClinchy in an email (valid only if you register in advance) - or volunteer to help for a shift and ride free before or after. Contact volunteer coordinator Kay Peterson, volunteer@bikesclub.org .

Members are also needed to help mark the routes - get a bit of extra exercise while previewing this year's beautiful routes.

    Ride With GPS

    A new benefit for BIKES Club members, Ride With GPS offers members an on-line computer based tool that will allow bicyclists to plan, navigate and share bike routes. Route maps can be printed. Routes can also be downloaded onto your smart phone or smart navigation device for verbal and graphic turn by turn directions. A few bike routes have already been added to the library and many more will be added. Routes for the McClinchy Mile: Camano Climb Edition have been added as an Event.

    For more info about Ride With GPS for the BIKES Club, check out the Ride With GPS info. Rick will give an overview training of the tool at our May 9 meeting.

    Overnights and Tours 2019

    A few rather optimistic ride leaders have used the gloom of winter to plan some awesome tours for this coming spring and summer. Check it out at Overnights and Tours 2019.
