Hood River

Had a really good ride today at Post Canyon. We rode from the top and hit up the super D course that is for the Gorge games that are next week. A lot of down with a few serious hike a bikes. Wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't mid 90's and pushing a 46# bike. Oh well. From the top we could see a forrest fire on the Washington side. Looked big. Riding today were a few of the usual suspects. Flying J and Chip. I was stoked to ride with Andy for the 2nd time in a year. He was flowing the DH trails with style. Crazy Jake was there with his Sunday and was hard to keep up with, even while pushing. Also present was Fat Larry and Skinny April. It's always a kick to ride with them. Larry managed to not break anything on his bike and April had a ton of quick,witty comments as usual. O..and no wrestling. The first run was a really long combo of steep hikes and steep descents. If it were about 30Deg cooler it would have been great. It was still great but we were dying. Next run I drove the truck down while they sessioned some stuff. I was spent. Great day as always.

4th of July

usually we do a big ride on the Glade trail but the snow is still there. So, we went to Hood River and camped.
