The Event

The Stinky What?

The Stinky Spoke is an 18-mile mountain bike “poker ride” held on the statistically most-rotten-weather day of the year.  The riders start and finish at Redhook Brewery in Woodinville, WA, 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.

For a Cause

Stinky Spoke benefits Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center which brings equine-assisted therapies to children and adults with disabilities. Riders who raise over $250 for Little Bit will be entered into a drawing for lavish prizes. The top event fundraiser will receive a shiny new bicycle courtesy of Woodinville Bicycles.

The Course

The beginning of the ride is a painful and amazing scene on “Heart Attack Hill,” as riders attempt to make it up the 300 feet of elevation in ¼ mile without stopping.  A cool medallion awaits each who make it!

The Course

Up Heart Attack Hill on the Tolt, out the Tolt to Collin Creek, into the Watershed, Power Line through Farrel-McWhirter westward to the Sammamish Trail, then north to Redhook.

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).
