Snohomish Valley – Oven Monkey Bakery -35 mi, 845 ft elevation – moderate

A moderately paced, mostly flat ride around the Snohomish Valley with a stop at a lovely new bakery in Lake Stevens: the Oven Monkey Bakery. The ride is a balance between rural country and the Centennial trail. There is no bathroom available at the start. Bathrooms are available at 12 miles. 

Riders should be prepared to change a flat. Fenders are appreciated when the pavement is wet. Steady rain will cancel the ride. Cue sheet available: 

Meet at the Lowell Riverfront trailhead. Note: Google might take you to the other side of the river! So please follow these directions: I-5, exit 192 (41st St, Everett) – head east on 41st St, Right at S 3rd St which becomes S 2nd St. At the stop sign (1.2.miles) turn L onto Lenora St. Cross the rail road tracks and turn left into the gravel parking lot. We will meet at the south end. 

Arrive early enough to ready your bike, sign the ride waiver and attend the safety briefing. The pace of this ride is based on having no wind. If we have a headwind, the pace will be lower, if we have a tailwind, the pace may be higher.

    Due to a High Wind Warning in effect for Everett and vicinity (and steady rain), the ride is CANCELLED. Riding should be safe; SMART riding doesn't include dodging tree limbs. Sorry, look forward to seeing you soon on a ride!
