Check-In and start your ride by10:30 a.m. Registered riders must check in at Stanwood Middle School on the day of the ride. You will get a race bib to attach to your clothing. The bib tells our SAG drivers and food stop volunteers that you are official participants - please wear it visibly throughout the day.

Your bib also has a detachable tag which you can present at SAAL Brewing for hot appetizers - after (or during?) your ride.

Riding the Route

Every route is marked on the pavement with colored-coded "Dan Henrys" at all turns. Like other recreational bicycle events, participants will be riding on roads that are shared with other vehicles. Helmets are required.

Routes are available in Ride with GPS and as PDFs

Follow all traffic laws:

  • stop at signals and stop signs,
  • ride single file when vehicles need to pass,
  • signal your turns and stops so other riders and drivers know your plans
Course closes at 4 p.m. Please plan your ride accordingly

SAG & Mechanical Support

Bike mechanics will be at the check-in at Stanwood Middle School and at the Cama Beach rest stop. They may be able to help with minor repairs. Make sure your bike is tuned up and in good condition before the ride.

Call 911 for emergencies. BIKES Club volunteers will be driving the route to assist riders as SAG support. Give them a "thumbs up" if you are OK. SAG drivers will be able to help with flats or transport riders if needed.

SAG coordinator: 425-239-8700 to request assistance (day of ride only). Please be patient as SAG drivers have a lot of rural roads to drive safely.

Camano Island Ham radio volunteers will be stationed at each of our food stops to facilitate communications.
