The weather gods are beaming on Puget Sound area cyclists who will ride in Saturday's McClinchy Mile bicycle tour.
Sponsored by BIKES of Everett, the annual spring ride through Snohomish County's rural hills and valleys is usually beset by drizzly conditions. The forecast for Saturday is clear skies and highs in the low 60s.
This year's ride features three loops — a hilly 27 miles, flat 36 miles, or challenging 47 miles that finishes off on the Centennial Trail, reports the event's website.
Go to the McClinchy Mile website for registration information and directions to the new starting point this year at Arlington Post Middle School, 1220 E. Fifth St., Arlington.
