Join an awesome mountain bike ride known for good times in downright stinky weather! Our 19+ mile mountain bike ride is held on what may be the most rotten weather day of the year. There’s mud, fun, beer, and some much-needed mid-winter cheer!
Riders start and finish at Redmond City Hall in downtown Redmond, Washington, and follow a route along the Tolt Pipeline, Trilogy, Redmond Watershed, Power Line and Sammamish River trails. Playing cards are collected at stops on the route, with each rider hoping to have a poker hand good enough at the end to win a prize.
Your registration fee goes to the Redmond Rotary Club Foundation that supports charitable causes, locally and internationally. This event is hard core — and heartwarming.
More information coming on which parking lots near Redmond City Hall will be available. Subscribe to our newsletter updates below to be notified as we finalize the details.
You will receive your beanie here (and pint glass on return).
Have fun, be safe! Remember to pick up a card at each of the 5 SAG stops to complete your poker hand.
Massy Ferguson band returns to play Stinky Spoke! Beer served in tent. (Your packet includes one drink ticket.) Food Trucks on hand.
Stinky Spoke has a new launch site and celebration venue this year at Redmond City Hall campus. Riders will start moving north on the Sammamish River Trail before taking a right on the Tolt Pipeline Trail. Riders will face a 300 foot rise called Heart Attack Hill before riding further on the Tolt to Collin Creek, into the Watershed, on the Power Line route through Farrel-McWhirter then westward to the Sammamish Trail and back to Redmond City Hall.
A chalk line will be added up “Heart Attack Hill” to provide separate lanes for riders and walkers for everyone’s safety. The hill is a real beast. Riders who conquer it without coming off their bike will receive a flashy medal (and bragging rights).
