    The Soggy Bottom is seeking 2 additional riders to accompany Tony to sweep the last rider from Devils Pass to Hope.

    >A bike that is capable of taking a rider over challenging terrain and stay together
    > Have a working bike light with at least 3 hours of run time. (I can provide 2)
    > Be capable to ride in the dark with bears nearby
    >Know basic first aid
    >I will provide bear spray that each rider will carry

    Sounds fun. I have nothing to do that Sat. Next weekend right Aug 4th?.. I think I meet all of your criteria? I tried to entice Endo to go. He is busy. I might be able to find another rider if needed.

    Rio: Just PM for my info and when and where to meet and the time. Happy to Sweep!

    I'd be happy to sweep if you need another. I think I meet all the criteria, and have a few friends riding tha I will probably be down there supporting anyway.

    Let me know

    My conversation with Rio was to be at the Devils pass cabin by 5pm. I'm sure will learn more by tonights meeting. It would be good to figure out a shuttle from Hope to the Devils creek TH.
