About the bike ride

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 Willows Run Golf Complex in 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.

The Course

Stinky Spoke has a new launch site and celebration venue this year at Willows Run Golf Complex which provides convenient access to the Sammamish River Trail.

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).
