Now leaving town, speed picks up.at 2km
Old Machias Roadat 5km
There is a small hill with a busy intersection here. You don't have the stop but watch for people turning as you approach the hill and play it safe as you push on through.
Kuhlman Straightsat 5km
A lot of cars come off Dubuque road, watch for surprises. Also, there is a large school at the end of the straightaway, so watch for cops and kids.
Turn right, cross the centenial trail. Lots of residences here, not too fast.

Machias Store, last gas for a while. Turn right, cross the bridge.
Pilchuck Riverat 10km
Te pace starts to pick up again as you get away from the river.
Newberg Roadat 12km
Turn left here. Newberg is fairly rural. It used to be in good shape, but may have deteriorated if the county hasn't maintained it.
Lake Bosworthat 16km
The roads around the lake are smaller with more residences so high speed might not be so good through here.
Lerch Roadat 19km
Right on Lerch, watch for the switchback where you turn onto Robe Menzell Road.
N. Lake Roseiger Roadat 26km
This is a good fast patch. If you want to keep to the fast, skip NW Lake Roesiger road and go straight on through. There is a nice little store and a lake front park you can stop at. There are a few surprising curves here too, so keep your eyes open.
NW Lake Roesiger Roadat 30km
Watch out for that first turn! NW Lake Roesiger Road is pretty technical - no hard turns, but lots of hidden driveways and a lot of rolling hills. It really is fun, but be careful here - especially in the summer when people are out at their cabins.
Woods Creek roadat 33km
Left on Woods Creek. This road is mostly smooth and fast.
Boyscout Campat 34km
From here the road gets even more rural - hard as that is to believe. Its generally pretty good to ride fairly fast, no hard curves but one big sweeper at the old farm.
Old Farm Curveat 36km
Lake Cochranat 40km
The road surface can be kind of rough through here, depending upon how its been patched. Not sure why...
Woods Creekat 43km
You should reach the valley about here. More curves, a little rougher road surface.
Entering Monroeat 44km
You are starting to come in from the boonies now, best slow down the pace as there will be more traffic.
Catch a quick left and shoot behind the stores
Take a right. The shopping center has some fast food places. Go up highway 2 towards snohomish if you want others. They're all right on the highway.

Old Snohomish Monroe Highway. Lots of driveways and local traffic. There are lots of straigtaways on this road but its better to keep the pace safe and sane. Generally, this is a very pleasant ride.
Snohomish River valleyat 61km
The road gets rougher here, watch out for the abrupt turn as you pass under the railroad tracks.
