Bike to Work Day Bike-pool from Marysville

Bike to Work Day is this Friday, May 21. I'll admit the weather isn't that inspiring just now, but the company on Bike to Work Day always is. It's great fun to  be on two wheels with other cyclists, and to stop by the Celebration Stations set up throughout the Puget Sound.

Many people are intimidated about riding Highway 529 between Marysville and Everett. That's why I'm forming a "bike-pool" to ride across the flats this Friday. We'll meet at the Marysville Celebration Station at Comeford Park (State Avenue & 6th Street) starting at 6:15 a.m. (time to get snacks and coffee) and leave for downtown Everett at 6:30 a.m. sharp.

We'll ride to Everett via Hwy 529, W. Marine Drive, Alverson and Grand Avenue. I'll be joining the Everett Celebration Ride at the Snohomish County Campus, departing there at 7:30 a.m.

Or, just stay (or ride to) Marysville for the Marysville Celebration Ride at 7:30 a.m. from the library on Grove Street. Either  way, you'll bike with a mayor and probably a police escort. That and the other cyclists will make up for any wind or raindrops we might encounter.
