Ride Reports

Rode on flat and bumpy trails. Went pretty well. More missions than we thought but had fun.

Trails looking good. There is a log down across the shortcut trail to ride the end of Rehab.

The pump track was really fun today. There were lots of kids playing on it. It was very dusty but we still had a blast. We even saw a crash.

Rode silkworm today. Great riding conditions. Looked like a new feature is being built about 1/3 of the way through. Logs have been placed in middle of trail, but haven't been built in completely.

Went on a short family ride (4 year old lost it about 30 minutes in), but the trails were nice - the fog made it less dusty than they have been recently, so it was nice and tacky and full of grip.

Since the last report the recent rains have restored a lot of the trails and compacted the dusty conditions. Most trails were in great shape today with the exception of a few sandy spots on Ticket to Ride (Long Route). There is a large downed tree...

Figured most trails were going to be muddy and slippery so I started on the gravel bike at 6am in Darrington and planned the Gold Mountain loop using FS road 24 and included summiting, and visiting the lone radio tower and weather station just abo...

This was my first time on this trail and it won't be the last. Started the ride at 11 AM after a short rain shower. Weather was supposed to improve and it did.  A few cars at the trail head but it turns out they were all going for the Beckler...

A massive landslide has taken out the trail where it continues E from Bessemer Road. It is impassible even on foot.

Since my last report Aug 25th at Raging River several things have happened. I played with the new flow at East Japanese Gulch and bent my ring finger way back (ring will never come off now!). I also lost my rear shifter that same ride. However, to...

We arrived at the Rattlesnake Lake parking late in the day. It was Panther's (2020 SantaCruz Megatower carbon CS) first bite of the trail and my second time to ride here. She was awesome and I felt more capable on this trail vs the last time with...

Rode up Masterlink - awesome scenery and time of year. We rode down Predator. All I can say is Too Soon. I need some progression trails to work up to it. It's an awesome trail but completely different from what I've ridden at raging river, Duthie....

One of my favorite rides in the area. The climb is manageable, downhill is flowy.

I bring a small water bottle and refill at the top using my water filter. The water tastes great and is nice and cool after a long climb.

The folks i...

Had a wonderful early morning ride to go do a little climb and come down Physical Therapy before visiting the parents for a bunch of maintenance work they needed me to do. The trail is a great rooty challenge and a drop sent me over once but I got...

First time up to North Mountain and I'm thoroughly impressed! We only had time for one run - parked at the lower shuttle lot, drove up to the upper and went down Skyline. What a beauty of a trail - serious kudos to the builders! It was absolutely...

So we picked literally the hottest day of the year to do the CCDH/Raging Tiger loop. It's a grunt on the way up. CCDH is eroding a bit, lots of brown powder and alternate routes and offshoots being carved out of the hillside. There's a bomb crater...

I've been riding here for a long time and absolutely love this place. Current conditions are dry and a lot of the trails are starting to break down more than usual (possibly due to heavier-than-normal use for COVID this season). The East Wing is i...

Great time to ride - the 6.2 mile logging road from US2 to the trailhead is annoying but definitely worth it.  

The wildflowers are out like fireworks.  The bench at the west end of the alpine meadow is a great place...

I headed back to Duthie to learn how to jump gaps. First I walked Gravy Train, and then started hitting jumps and adding another 2-3 with every descent. They get bigger further down the trail, and by 10:00 AM I'd sent them all except the last (big...
