Ride Reports

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 thr...

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 fr...

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 in d...

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 for a picnic and didn'...

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 (bigges...

Left the trailhead at 7am in a misty rain and 1/4 mile visibility. There wasn't going to be any awesome views today, just a wet ride. The dirt was well drained. The last report said the avalanche debris field was ridable but there must have been anot...

Thanks to JJ for leading me on three laps of Lower Predator this afternoon! By my third lap I sent all the features, there are some tricky drops and tech sections including a right hand switchback with a large drop right in the middle. Great trail an...

I rode the new Canyon Creek DH this morning, and Raging Tiger back up. CCDH is long with rooty technical gnar, some steep powdery switchbacks and a bermy flowy final section down to the river. I'd call this a blue plus or black minus, maybe dark blue...

Met up with fellow Evergreen rider tomvale and did the Raging Lollipop. We just missed the opening of the new CCDH and Raging Tiger so will have to go back for that. Great morning on the trail, that lollipop is always a challenge for me! Poppin Tops...

Wanted to get a good baseline performance run on my gravel bike, over multiple terrain styles, before I order and install my Fox 32AX fork to mitigate the handlebar shock of the rooty, or rough, terrain I ride with the gravel bike. I decided to start...

Drove to the gate; posted as private property.  We didn't feel welcome so we left.  Anyone know what the rules are out here?  Is it actually okay to ride here?

Conditions were great. I'm out of shape, and I'll try Raging Ridge when I'm not.

The goal today was to make the 100 mile loop around the Mountain Loop Highway (Arlington, Darrington, Barlow Pass, Granite Falls, Arlington). I started in downtown Arlington just after 6am in a moist haze and windbreaker. Because of the slide on the...

Left from 356th Drive lot about 8:00 AM, plenty of parking. Rode fire roads up Tokul East, and down Two Fernz and Last Frontier. Despite two crashes it went faster than expected, so I went back up and took Golden Spike over to Tokul West. Some mud ho...

The avalanche debris field is rideable, and there's just one tree down on the road to trail part.  Rode across one small patch of snow near the top.  The Alpine Traverse was spectacular as usual.  The only warning is be wary of riding...

Long uphill grunt and just before the third lookout my shifting completely goes to h*ll. Clanking and grinding, I bail to take a look and the rear derailleur is wedged into the cassette! Turns out my DT Swiss rear axle has come unscrewed, so I'm scre...

Road this from North Bend. The creek crossings were all passable without getting your feet soaked. OTOH, there were many sections where the trail is overgrown - by the time I got to the Middle Fork Trailhead my arms made me look like I'd been wrestli...

Did a single loop on the east side of the tracks and went to the flow lines to watch a few younger adventurous riders enjoy the flow built and improved lately. There was just a couple mud puddles on the trails. I also took a side trail down to the ra...

The entire area inside 30330 and 30400 Road (Mousetrap, Moonraker, Bon Bon and Upper Outback) is covered in dried black "biosolids" which I'm guessing is literally crap! Rode Lower Outback, Middle, Poopy D (no poop there), Mavericks and Tokyo Drift....
