Stinky Spoke Poker Ride January 21st
So this fun and muddy ride began years ago on (despite what Portlanders think) the worst weather day of the year. It starts at the Red Hook Brewery, then goes out the Tolt trail to Collin Creek, into the Watershed, takes the Power Line trail through Farrel-McWhirter westward to the Samammish Trail, then north back to Redhook.
The ride (not a race) is held mostly on unpaved trails, away from traffic, but a mountain bike is not entirely necessary. A hybrid or cross bike will do.
The 2014 event was held in beautiful weather. Don’t count on that happening again.
The Stinky Spoke benefits Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center which brings equine-assisted therapies to children and adults with disabilities.
