RUSA Route #2877 "Snohomish - La Conner Out & Back"
The route features low elevation (below 110 meters/360 feet), gradual railroad trail grades with flat farm pastures, on rural roads against a scenic backdrop of the Cascade foothills and maybe a peek of Mt. Baker.
From the start in Snohomish, make a gentle climb on the Centennial Trail until passing under the HWY 9 overpass. Descend down into Arlington for a restroom pit stop, coffee (off-route one block), or baked goods. Make another gradual climb past Lake McMurray before descending down HWY 534 to Conway. Meander across the flats out to La Conner, with a chance to see Bald Eagles perched in trees. Grab some baked goods (or breakfast/lunch) at La Conner (multiple options). Return back to Snohomish for a finish at Spada Farmhouse Brewery.
Parking is available in Snohomish near the start on side streets. Due to the large number of riders for these brevets, please consider parking away from the businesses on 1st Street that are more convenient for walking customers. As a general recommendation, avoid storing things of value in your car, certainly not visible.
In the spirit of self-supported randonneuring and keeping ride fees to a minimum, food and drinks will not be provided by the club for the Winter Rouleur Series. Bring your own food and beverages. Food & services are noted on the route.

- All riders must have front and rear lights, a reflective vest or sash, and reflective ankle bands. See RUSA Article 10 for details. Be prepared to show these to the ride organizer at the start. Lights should be on during any low-light conditions (rain, fog, night, tunnels, etc).
- If you cannot finish a ride and must abandon (DNF), please contact the organizer ASAP using the phone number on the brevet control card.
Electronic Proof of Passage (EPP) is available on some rides at the organizer's discretion.
- If you are using EPP, please text or email your Strava or RideWithGPS link to the organizer within 24 hours of finishing.
- The ride organizer's contact information is available on the SIR event page (you must be logged in to see this information).
- The ride organizer will reply to confirm that your EPP was received.
- Failure to send the ride link to the organizer within 24 hours may result in no RUSA credit for the ride.
- Volunteers may also be at the finish in case you want to instantly EPP validate in person.
- Photos at controls are optional but highly recommended as an alternative EPP backup in case of a GPS track failure.
- If you use a brevet control card rather than EPP, you must turn in your signed card at the ride finish.
- Regardless of if you use EPP or a brevet control card, you must check-in with the organizer or a volunteer at the start, the finish, at any overnight controls.
