8 mile

If you haven't ridden the 8 mile trail  system down by Hood River area you need to!  Great little campground area and fantastic single track smack in the middle of some old growth timber.  Good times were had with Ivan, Sean and Warren!!!!!  My Trance was loving this trail especially the downhills!

Ellensburg Pass via Wenas with Warren, Phil, Kyle and Shannon......

Saturday was a fun road ride with a little ride thrown in.  We left the bike shop and headed out thru Selah and out towards Wenas Lake.  We kept riding until the pavement ended and then we climbed up and over into Ellensburg.  The climb was pretty gradual and only about 3.5-4 miles.  Then you ride mostly down still on gravel for about eight miles.  The steap downhill starts on pavement and sends you flying into Ellensburg!  Then we turned and headed back to Yakima via the Canyon road.  My Giant TCX was perfect for the ride and other than a lack of fitness for the last 20 miles I was really comfy!!!  The ride ended up being 85 miles with 4500 ft of climbing.  Not a bad day.  oh yeah could have done with out the smoke but oh well!

2 Ride Reports

Here is a great picture of Jerry after riding the High Cascades 100

"Well, I finished the race! I think my time was 10:10 with a

mile detour. I was on pace for a 9:30 but my stomach went
south at mile 80. I don't know how many were in my group
but I took 34th and 97th out of 372."

And here is team rider Tyler taking a break along the Kachees Ridge Trail.

Stevens Pass

So I took my trusty Trance to Stevens Pass with my buddies from Vicious Cycles this last Saturday!  They all rented downhill bikes while I played on my versatile awesome Trance!  
It had rained the night before, temps were in the low 60's life couldn't get better!  It's a fun bike park for someone looking to get their feet wet in the downhill scene and have some fun!  Good work to the trail builders up there!!!

Bend Ride

I spent the 4th of July weekend in Bend Oregon with the Jennarts!  What a great town and riding destination.  There is something for everyone in this area unless you don't like the outdoors.....  then there is still something fun I suppose for you as well.  Where else can you climb for 20 miles and still be having fun!  My trusty Trance was great as usual!  here's a few pics of the ride.  Tumalo Falls is in the black and white photo.
