    Orcas Island has the goods

    My girlfriend and I headed over to Orcas Island for a couple of days with the bikes and our dog Drago. Man, this place was a dream! One of the coolest places I've ever ridden

    Should be doable except for maybe a push or two in a couple sections. FYI, the trails are only open to bikes late fall until early spring, so if you want to go summer is out of the question.

    This riding looks amazing, I know they have some downhill out there too. Any tips on finding some nice riding spots? I'd love to get out there and do some pedalling with the wife and puppy one of these days.

    It's not a huge place, so the trail maps do a pretty good job of showing you the layout. Anything from the top of mt constitution coming down will be super fun.

    There are illegal downhill trails that keep popping up, and Parks Rangers are not happy about them. Hope you and your wify will have fun on the fast, swoopy downhill goodness available within the legal trail system!
