I'm back from my road trip taking my Subaru to Alabama full of college stuff for the daughter. I stuck the hitch rack on the wife's car and took the bike to Tokul's 356th lot and headed to Uptown Funk and Lake Marie Road to descend all of Crazy Ivan...

My trusty Subaru steed got a full blown, family, detailing this past weekend to rid it of the 10 years and 220,000 miles of mountain biking and commuting it has endured before handing it off to my daughter in a couple days. You might say it got a "se...

I rode the Link boys to the East Tiger Summit entrance, then OTG and Fully Rigid to the loop back to the lot. Both trails are in perfect shape, dry and a bit dusty. OTG starts with some nice flow, and has consistent drops of all sizes. No braking bum...

I never thought I'd be able to say that about Snoqualmie Pass in all my years of recreation up there, but with the addition of the new Mountain Bike Park, the context has changed. The new trails completed were wonderful but will be very loose until t...

Went out early this morning to do the Springboards, Meet Cutter, the Goldeneye/Wishbone area, and EweTube. The deeper berms on both Goldeneye and Wishbone are filling with the gravel left after sandy powder and dust is blown out. We need to rake them...

Nason Ridge trails are dry, DUH. Today was a day to spend at Stevens Pass Resort since I had an open day and Summit Central was delayed. I avoid weekend lift lines at all costs. They allowed us to get on the chair ten minutes early which was neat. I...

Been riding the gravel bike since the FS mtb has been waiting for dropper post parts. Today I got my mtb back from the shop again and a friend and I took the bikes to the Gulch to get back into the trails. We did the Boyz loop twice and then went dow...

A friend and I took our gravel bikes to the North Mountain skills area this morning. We walked over to the kiosk and my buddy got stung by a bee! After inspecting the kiosk, there was a 7" diameter hive hanging from the backside! With no one else aro...

Bike is in the shop so I chose this cool morning to bring the tools to the trail to get rid of the saplings, bushes, and grasses overgrowing our trail. I got all the way to the erosion washout and ran out of time. Anyone else can continue from there...

Trail run, left the bike at home. Trails are in great shape. Ran the Buck Lake loop in from Get the Stink Out. Great trail system; need more people to come ride them!

I had the trail to myself today on my first visit. Nice and cool in the shade. Much of the lower trail in need of a major brush out requiring an industrial weed whacker to get the alder that threatens to take over. Not a real problem yet, other than...

Left the house with the gravel bike this morning heading to Snohomish and took the Centennial Trail up to Dubuque Road. I climbed Dubuque to Woods Creek Road and then to the DNR gated road that gets you to the top of Three Lakes Hill. I began the cli...

Parked in South Darrington this morning after sunrise and rode to the north entrance of forest service road 24 to begin the climb to the tower and weather station. Today was perfect weather and the road was in good condition. I got all the way up to...

Yes, it's a 2+ hour drive from my house and cost me $55 for a lift ticket, but damn did I get a lot of riding in! It's amazing how much you can ride, when the uphill is a 10 minute lift ride. Weather was chilly, spitting rain and occasional wind so t...

Met up with one of my neighbors this morning for a bike ride at Tiger Mountain in the upper lot and then climbed to the summit to descend East Tiger and Side Hustle. Then we climbed once more up to Inside Passage and came down Atlas. It was my first...

Went out this morning for another "before the heat" ride under the canopy of Paradise Valley. My helmet and body must have cleared hundreds of webs across the miles I rode this morning. When I took the helmet off during a break, the GoPro was covered...

Went out early this morning to ride before the heat wave and was surprised that the trails were in really good shape. There were dry spots of course but the Gulch's canopy has kept the sun away pretty well. Orion, Mukraker, along with Boyz and others...

Met up with a former coworker and friend and enjoyed the mountain today going up Huff and Puff and descending on Evolution, Scorpion and Unemployment Line. With a renovated dropper post, all the tech and flow was so much more enjoyable. We found a lo...

I slept in today and parking has been an issue in Cap Hill with all the construction, so I figured a trip down memory lane would be nice. The poor park is still in really bad shape and some sections seem like they have been totally condemned.  L...
