    It just depends. Most years the really doesn't truly get crappy until late November. We tend toward blustery or Indian Summer days with some moisture. So you can get hero dirt, or freeze/thaw. Really, it can be some of the best riding of the season but the days start to shorten.

    PS. I heard a rumor that Wheelsport East is now renting mountain bikes. Can anyone confirm?

    Going to be staying in downtown Seattle in july for a wedding. I'll probably only have one day to rent a bike and go ride. Any suggestions that will minimize my driving time but still give me the pacnw experience ? Thanks !

    From downtown it's 30-60 minutes in every direction to the PacNW experience. The closer you can get to Issaquah the better.

    Renting a bike - call a shop or two. If they don't rent, they should be able to direct you to one that does.
    Three riding options
    1. Duthie Hill Bike Park if you want to check out a very well built park with a little something for everyone...jumps, 5 miles of single track.
    2. Tiger Mtn...probably the most popular riding area close to Seattle. Climbing, flow trail, fast downhill.
    3. Middle Fork Snoqualmie River...back country, amazing scenery, will basically take all day.
    Go to the trail wiki on the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance website for more info.

    Hi Formica, when time permits can you update the first post you made here with the updated Evergreen East information (evergreeneast.org), instead of the outdated www.fttrc.org‎ links?

    I'm not a moderator any more so I can't edit other peoples posts. Maybe ask Shiggy to do it?

    I'm visiting Port Angeles in late June. Is there anything relatively close that isn't a lung buster? I would also need to rent a bike, a hard tail to be precise. Thanks!

    I'll be in Longview in July, and I was hoping to ride trails around Mt. St. Helens. Where would be the closest place to rent a bike? I called Bob's in Longview and they do not rent bikes and said I would have to go to Portland.

    Probably easiest to google around a bit and then make some calls. Most locals don't rent bikes...

    You'll love riding around St. Helens. Have a good visit.

    Hi there,

    I am a Kiwi heading to Seattle for a week on Sat and have Monday next week free, and planning on hitting up Tiger Mountain, can anyone point me to somewhere that rents decent AM bikes?

    Cheers

    Disclaimer: I have never ridden a transition bike, nor do I have any connection to them. I was going to donate money to WMBC but This would be a more fun way to do it.

    If anybody comes to Bellingham and wants to rent a bike to ride Galbraith why not rent a transition mountain bike for $40 for 4 hours. All the proceeds will be donated to WMBC.

    From their website:

    FACTORY DEMO
    Coming to Bellingham and want to try out a Transition on some of our fine local trails? You are in luck! We offer bike demos from our factory showroom by appointment. Here is how it works.
    Demos are $40 with 100% of the proceeds going to the Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition to build and maintain mountain bike trails in Whatcom County.
    Show up to our showroom at the specified date and time with your riding gear and pedals as well as ID and credit card (we can provide flat pedals if needed)
    Ride from our showroom to Galbraith Mountain with over 50 miles of mountain bike singletrack to choose from.
    Demo rides are for 3-4 hours max and must be brought back the same day. Showroom/Demo hours are Monday-Friday noon to 5pm
