McClinchy Mile Camano Climb

Sunday, April 26, 2020

The McClinchy Mile Camano Climb Bicycle Ride offers scenic and challenging route options of 35, 50, 68 and 100 miles.

Plan to ride a hilly century or metric century with us! The earlier you register, the more money you save and the more time you have to train. It's a beautiful ride, but not an easy one.

Register now to save $10 off day-of registration (ends April 6).

In addition to fresh fruit and snacks at rest stops, riders will get a sub sandwich lunch in Stanwood. We’ll also have mechanical support at our start and mid-point locations, and sag cars on-route to help riders.

Free family ride starts at 11 a.m. in Arlington to get riders of all ages and ambitions out on the north end of the Centennial Trail.

B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County and the Stanwood-Camano Kiwanis co-host the McClinchy Mile Camano Climb, with 60-plus years of event experience between the two groups.

About the McClinchy Mile

McClinchy has been hosted by B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County since 1982. It is our major fundraiser, and proceeds go back into local bicycling. In addition to supporting our club, we give grants for bike-related projects such as Everett's Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop and helmets to go with bikes for low income kids at Christmas House each December.

Stanwood-Camano Kiwanis host the Camano Island portion of the year event. The club uses event proceeds for a high school scholarship program. The Kiwanis have hosted the Camano Climb Bike Ride for more than 25 years.

How far is a McClinchy Mile?As far as you want to go on a beautiful spring day. The ride is named after a founding B.I.K.E.S. Club member, Stuart McClinchy, who died too young.

B.I.K.E.S. Club was founded in the 1970s and hosts recreational bike rides year-round for members. To learn more and attend your first ride for free, see our Rides page.
