    My favorite route in Snohomish County through very pretty hills farmland and back roads. We will start at my place which is on a 400 ft. hill east of Snohomish,  drop down to the valley and loop South and East past Monroe to Sultan.  We will try to get in to the Sultan bakery for lunch, but if the line is too long we'll stop at the mini mart at the turn from Highway 2 onto Old Owen Rd.   We then work our way back to the start over hills and back roads including an optional jaunt out and back on the 3 mile road to the Lake Chaplain reservoir. Bring at least two water bottles, there is no water after the lunch stop (mile 30). Also remember to bring a couple of spare tubes, patch kit and tools so you will be self sufficient.

    Post ride we will have a barbecue at my place. I'll have hot dogs chips and Costco potato salad, you are welcome to bring your own stuff if you want something more fancy.

    Arrive by 9:00 for a 9:30 start.

    Pace: 16 - 18 MPH on the flats, a lot less on the hills! Frequent regroups.

    Check out if Fall has arrived in the Skagit River Valley. This is a fairly long, but low elevation, ride. This route starts on the North side of the river and follows the Cascade Trail as much as possible. In Concrete we'll have a quick lunch stop though food choices are limited. On our return we will cross the river to come back on the South side mostly on S Skagit Hwy.
