Organizer: Bob Magyar
Date: May 12, 2007

Time: 5:00 AM
Start Location: Arlington

Start Address: Arlington Motor Inn (next to Denny's)
(360) 652-9595

2214 State Route 530 NE
Arlington, WA 98223


I-5 exit 208 (Pioneer Hwy E / SR 530 Exit), then east on SR 530 toward Arlington for 500 feet.   First you will see Denny's on the right, then the parking area where we will start from, then the Arlington Motor Inn.

If you are traveling a long distance, you might want to come up on Friday night and get a room at the inn.


Do not be fooled by the fact that this ride will be in May. In 1999 finishers were the ones wearing full tights, booties, wool jerseys, rain jackets and wind blocking gloves. Many stopped along the route to purchase vinyl coated work gloves. I would suggest reading the ride reports from the archives:

  • Thoughts on the Arlington 400 km
  • A Wet Ride To Sedro Woolley
  • Thoughts on the Arlington 400 km Make-up May 10-11


Post Ride:
We will have several rooms at the Arlington Motor Inn for riders to take naps in, so that they can drive home safely. I would suggest that you bring your own towel and a change of clothes so you can take a shower.
