B.I.K.E.S. Club of
Snohomish County

Overnights & Tours 2019

BIKES Club tours and weekends are put together with the idea that riding and sight-seeing are more enjoyable for a group. 

The following list of tours is tentative - organizers need to hear from you that you are interested, or a tour may be canceled. Contact the ride leader by the RSVP date to express your interest and confirm details.

Tour Tips

  • Tours are for members of B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County - we welcome you to join the club!  Then, make sure your membership stays up to date! 
  • Riders cover their own costs for food and lodging, and share transportation costs if applicable (for SAG or carpools). Make your own reservations.
  • Have your bike in good repair, and be ready to ride some hills and the distances involved. 
  • Everyone should have the equipment and know how to deal with a flat tire.  
  • If you want to diverge from the intended routes, plan to communicate with the ride leader and be able to find your own way.
