Magnuson. Fast, flowy and easy enough for your grandpa to ride. But this is not your grandpa’s Magnuson. This year we flipped everything around and are running the course in reverse.
Come meet the new Magnuson and bring your bike handling skills because we have some surprises in store. (You can still bring your grandpa). And maybe you’ll even have to spray your body and bike down to wash off the mud.

Parking & Transportation
There is plenty of parking at Magnuson Park, but it’s a bit of a walk to the venue. The main parking is at the Google map location here.
- Recommended Parking: Most people will want to park in lots E1 and E5 noted on the map below. These are big lots with ample parking–you’ll just need to plan to walk or ride a bit to the venue.
- If you arrive early & plan to stay all day. Lot E4 is the closest lot, but access to get to E4 will close at 8:30AM and you won’t be able to leave until around 4pm, after the last race wave finished.
- Limited Parking available along the road (lot E3). If you arrive early, you can find parking there, but access may be congested as turning around is difficult.
Getting to the venue — If you live nearby, please ride your bike. If not, think about carpooling or taking public transportation.
