Skagit Bicycle Club's 23rd Annual Skagit Spring Classic Bicycle Ride
May 11, 2013
Starting Point: Bayview Elementary School - Burlington, Washington
This year's ride through northern Skagit and southern Whatcom Counties will again feature splendid rural, forest and marine views. We are working on improvements to the routes, stay tuned.
Ride the Ride of Your Choice:
Century: This Scenic route travels through the upper Skagit flats, north up Chuckanut Drive then back south on the old Samish highway around Samish Lake back to Skagit county.
Metric Century: This challenging 62-mile route has some great scenery this year including the popular Chuckanut Drive area. Over 2400 feet in elevation gain.
Rolling 45 Miler: This scenic route for the social rider and those ready to move up to longer distances. About 40% flat and 60% rolling hills.
No Sweat 25 Route: Mostly flat route which travels through northern Skagit County around the Samish River with scenic views of Padilla Bay and the San Juan Islands. A great reason to get your bike out of the garage on a spring day.
