Raul had 3 buddies from Venezuela that came to the great pacific north west to ride and the first stop for them was in the Columbia River Gorge. ( long sentence eh?) We hit up Post Canyon and Syncline. Also present were Larry , April and Jamie (shuttle mom) oh and I was there too. Fun day and I'll let the pic's speak for themselves. I hope.
I haven't seen anyone from my school days, since...well school I think. So when Dale G. found me on Facebook I was pleasantly surprised He made a comment about some of the mountain biking pictures and said he'd like to try that sometime. So I held him to it. We (Louis,Otto and I) picked him up ( he lives 12 min from us) and headed to Browns camp. What better place to take someone for a ride. It was 90 in town so I was hoping it would be a lot cooler. Well..it was a little cooler I guess, but not much. The ride was great and no blood or broken bones. Louis said he was impressed that dale was riding so well through rocks with no suspension. Kid's eh? Fun time and look forward to doing it again sometime.
Headed up the gorge with Raul,Tony and Carlisle to ride some epic single track. It was on the Washington side which meant we had to pay our .75 cents to the bridge nazi's . We dropped off one truck at the bottom and we definitely felt out of place. The parking lot was full with...rafters. Last week it was people with ski's looking at us funny, this week it was people in wet suits. To the top, and boy was it the top. Great view every direction. The trail was rocky and dusty. It's summer after all so I wasn't to surprised. We did 2 runs and Carlisle had 3 crashes. One for the video camera. That's always good. Another great day riding in the Gorge
In 03 Terry and I did a 3 man ride on the Glade, to Crosstown to Pioneer Bridal trail. It was a fun ride and little did we know we would be doing it 7 years later. I guess if you have a good thing going...well, you know.
This year we had Myself, Mtn Rider, Terry, Mrs. Terry, Josh, Dustin,Tony, Sean, The Don, and Carl. Fat Larry and Fancy April joined us later. I guess sleeping in is good. I wouldn't know. So Jamie was absent because he is still broke. Hopefully next year he'll be back. The Glade had snow for a bit so most of us shredded the natural lines. Sorry IMBA. Was fun. and loose. Crosstown was fast and had 2 joggers. and Pioneer Bridal was really fast and had 2 hikers. Great day and great riders.
