Ft Ebey and The Kettles trail system on Whidbey Island offers over 30 miles of single and double track trails with short steep climbs and lots of technical trails. Mussels in the Kettles lays out routes on these trails so you can come to test your skills. WIBC marks every turn with flagging and arrows so you go in the preferred direction. Mussels in the Kettles is the primary funding for trail work and bicycle advocacy performed by Whidbey Island Bicycle Club. Thank you for participating!
