Camano Climb Route
The official Camano Climb takes place annually the first weekend in May.  If you seek a challenging 50 mile (or 35 mile) route any time of the year, this is the ride for you.

NOTE: The May 5, 2002 Camano Climb will have a NEW START/FINNISH area at the New Camano Senior Center and they've added a Spagetti feast afterwards.
