About This Activity

Register on the day of the ride from 8 to 10 a.m. at Haller Middle School, Arlington. That's also when and where pre-registered riders should sign in and start enjoying the ride.

This year’s McClinchy Mile Oso Strong Bicycle Ride on Sunday, March 15, 2015 is a memorial to the people and the communities affected by the Oso Landslide. Routes of 34 and 56 miles will start in Arlington and travel along the Stillaguamish River through Oso to Darrington.

Unique food stops at Rhodes River Ranch Restaurant in Oso and at Darrington Old School Park. In Oso, warm up inside with Cowgirl biscuits & gravy, fresh cookies, and hot beverages while overlooking an active horse arena. A lunch buffet option will also be available for purchase from the restaurant.

Rider fees will support the Oso-area Whitehorse Trail and bike tourism through the Centennial Trail Coalition and Washington Bikes. McClinchy also supports B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County, which has hosted the event for more than 30 years.

The route along Highway 530 has light traffic and a gradual grade up a beautiful river valley with views of the Cascades. Tourism is essential to the economic recovery of this area - come visit!
