Interurban Trail: Riding Everett to Lynnwood

I’m in Everett today so I decided to take a quick ride on the Interurban Trail that runs from Everett to Lynnwood.

While it’s rainy it only sprinkled a bit. The wind, on the other hand, was tough. It was so windy heading south that I only maintained a 13 mph pace. It was awesome on the way back, however, as 28 mph was no problem on the flat trail.

I love multi-use trails like this one, but I have a couple complaints about this one:

1. The trail is interrupted by city streets on several occasions. Making matters worse the trail is poorly signed in some areas. I had to ask two nice young ladies for directions at one point.

2. When you can find the signs you are sometimes directed to ride your bike on the sidewalk on the wrong side of the street. While there are worse things, I guess, this feels pretty weird.

My favorite part of the trail was a short 100-200-yard section that snakes through a swath of green trees and shrubs between the neighborhoods and I-5.

As I rode I couldn’t help but think how cool it’s going to be when all the section of the Interurban Trail link together and connect to the Foothills Trail. Can’t wait.
