    I will be in Seattle tomorrow and am renting a bike from Montlake Bike Shop. I am renting a Giant Talon, but they also have the Santa Cruz Heckler and Nomad. The guy that I've been dealing with at the bike shop is super cool and I have had a great experience so far. Now I just can't wait to pick up the bike and make it to Mount St. Helens!

    Nothing on Cougar (MT Bikes were booted off Cougar long ago). Closest trails are going to be tapeworm in Renton, Grand Ridge and Tiger Mountain. Check out the Evergreen Trails map for details.

    Kirkland Bicycles rents Mountain Bikes and is not far from Bellevue. Nice shop and nice people.

    Check out the first post in the sticky, visiting Seattle and where to ride for suggestions.

    Thanks Woodway. I did. And also looked at options to hook up for a group ride on Sat or Sunday via Evergreen. I will look into Kirkland. Thx again.

    So talked to Kirkland. One rental in total..not a bad bike, but guy wanted a full paid rental fee and no refunds on weather. Also had no idea of the local trails. So, I'll keep searching.

    You picked a good time to visit. Saturday looks to be sunny and around 80 deg F. Sunday will be a little cooler with the possibility of a little rain but nothing serious. Should be great riding all weekend.

    Good luck in your rental search. As you can imagine, most locals have no clue about renting bikes locally (including me), but if you keep calling bike shops you'll eventually find something.

    Want to throw out a kudos' To Woodinville Bikes. They hooked me up on a nice Specialized. They posted me to Paradise where I enjoyed quality alone time. You did yourself proud today WA. Back tomorrow..maybe Tolt.

    Hey J,
    A couple of us are riding Tiger early tomorrow (8 am). You're welcome to join us. Otherwise, I suggest you try Grand Ridge or Tiger. Tolt is fun but very similar to Paradise. GR and Tiger have a bit more elevation and a different feel to them.

    Slop- thanks. I am slow to go (jet lag) so afternoon ride for me. Tiger looks great but I think a bit daunting without some trail knowledge. May just head back to paradise for ease and enjoyment.

    Jordy - Tiger is actually pretty easy. Print out the map on the Wiki, and there are always a lot of people around who will be happy to point you on your way. Glad you are enjoying riding in Paradise, it's a fun little park.

    I got foiled on my attempt to ride this morning, so I could show you around Tiger this afternoon if you're interested.

    Some of the best ridign in the state is in Anacortes, and the trails are in beautiful condition right now. You can rent bikes from Skagit Cycles, and buy trail maps there or at The Bike Spot in Anacortes. You'll never forget the riding, especially at Whistle Lake. Steep, rocky, technical, perfect.

    Galbraith is great. Tokul East, Tiger Mountain (when it opens again) Duthie Hill. Check out the Evergreen website.

    Hey. First time here. Am from Vancouver and am thinking about riding on the weekend with a friend who just moved to Seattle. Anywhere from Bellingham to Seattle. Looking for steep technical or medium jumpy. Thinking maybe riding Duthie on Saturday and then something in the Bellingham area Sunday. Could do vice versa.

    Any groups going out that care to show a couple dudes around? Saturday or Sunday. We are flexible. April 20-21.

    Was looking at checking out some of the trails in the Spokane area, looks like the links for the fat tire club don't work, just FYI.
