    Mix here from the Tri-Cities although I am no where near there now. The military has stationed me out in Kosovo. This is my first year biking a friend talked me into it and I haven't looked back since. I do alot of XC and down hilling when time permits. Looking forward to getting out next year and biking in the great state of WA.
    Some days downhilling has a whole new meaning for me !

    My name is Joey and I just moved here to Bremerton last year. I am finally getting back into the woods after a long layoff due in part to a busted elbow in a race back in 1999. To that add getting lazy and working too much. I used to race cross country back in Virginia in the late 90's but as mentioned I busted up my elbow and stopped riding. I have searched the trails on this site here in Kitsap County and am hoping to make some connections so I have people to ride with.

    Hello, I'm Adam from Kirkland and I ride all types. My favorite local ride is Noble Knob and I've done rides in Rossland, Bend, Las Vegas, Whistler, Moab, Fruita and most recently (last weekend) Oakridge. Oakridge is by far the best. I can't believe I traveled all over the western half of the US and found an unfound Mecca 5 hours away!! The people, food and rides there are unmatched and the best part about it is it's close and cheap. Let me know if you'd like to come on one of our (small) group rides.

    I'm Chris from Richland. I primarily ride in and around the Tri-Cities. State Patrol in Kennewick and Chamna in Richland are my two primary digs. I've been known to make it over to Harris Park in Walla Walla/Milton-Freewater.

    My riding style is... horribly inexperienced Is that a style? I mainly ride XC stuff out at chamna and some aggressive XC, light FR stuff out at State Patrol. I also ride the bike path loop around the Tri-Cities (about a 20 mile ride) once the mid-summer desert climate hits and any trails that were once reasonably decent dirt turn into reasonably awful sand traps.

    My bike for the dirt is an 05 Specialized Enduro Expert upgraded with a Fox DHX Air 5.0 from the stock 5th Element. I'll also be tossing some Shimano PD-M636's on it next week (hopefully).

    My bike for the road is an 05 Trek 3700 that I just through some Nimbus Armadillo 26x1.5 tires on, a set of Ritchey V4 clipless pedals and possibly the best upgrade anyone could ever make to that particular bike... A Salsa seat post clamp

    Get over that California bashing crap. I lived the first 30 years of my life there. Nothing to be ashamed of. I learned to mountain bike in the dry and dust of So Cal. Moved up here cause there's less people and less polution! Although the traffic stinks.

    Rich from Seattle
    All kinds of riding, but the more technical the better!
    This year more backcountry rides, and I need to get up to the North Shore!

    My gf and I moved to Seattle last summer from Philadelphia. We ride at St Ed's pretty often, and hit Tiger sometimes. We love riding at Galbraith. We rode at Windy Ridge, Ranger Creek, and Suntop last summer; and I'm looking forward to more of those type of rides.

    I'm Guy from Seattle. I like to climb and I like to descend. I love all kinds of riding, but am trying to build my park skills this season, so I'm spending as much time as possible in Whistler this summer.

    Luke K. Bellingham, WA.

    I loooove Galbraith. My favorite trails are EVO, SST, 911, and Upper/Lower Bob's. But I love them all.

    I started riding last season and couldn't believe I've lived in Whatcom County all my life and not gotten into this...

    Sorry for the repost. I forgot to mention my favorite riding type. I'd say I'm All Mountain, but definately leaning towards freeride. I love to hit big drops and some jumps. I'm not too into big gaps yet because that's scary...

    finally back on two wheels

    Sal from Elma. I love any kind of backcountry riding. Fast and narrow are my favorites, but fire roads scouting for deer are fun too. Just finally got a new bike after my trek 9800 was stolen over a year ago. Looking forward to exploring capital forest and the Montesylvia area.

    There are a good many choices around North Bend, but nothing in North Bend other then Hiker Only trails. In Snoqualmie 3 miles to the West of North Bend there is Tokul East, then Tokul West. Drive Pass Fall City and you have Griffin Creek and Tolt. Less then 10 miles away from North Bend is Tiger Mountain.

    During the Summer the options really open up just on the other side of Snoqualmie Pass with even more riding options. You'll find a lot more options then what we had in the Midwest and a lot more technical. The above is all XC.

    Check out http://www.bbtc.org trail wiki for a list of options.

    Kyle from Oly WA. Grew up in Renton adjacent to the Tapeworm, rode that and St Edwards, moved to Oly, been riding Capitol and all over the west for the last 10 years or so. First time poster, but I think I've ran into many of you on the trails. Always up for a CF ride, I'm up there a few times a week.

    Wow, there's a lot of us on this thread. I haven't looked at it in a long time, so I was surprised how many of us Washingtonians pop on here to check things out. Cool!

    I'll avoid the term "gathering", but maybe we should do a group ride sometime next spring (when all this f'ing rain stops).

    I love the idea of a group ride. I think it should be held on a pretty mild trail to make sure that everyone can ride it. I would also love to possibly help in any way i can to get this ride going

    Hi. I'm Jim from Port Hadlock.
    I like techy singletrack.
    I like to do group rides, it's hard to trash talk when you ride solo.It also seems to hurt less when you crash and have someone to laugh at you.
    My favorite local trails are Gibbs Lake and Anderson Lake.
    Gibbs Lake is pretty dry in the winter due to the work of the local trail group.
    I want to do some more trails in the Hood River area next year, and maybe Galbraith in Bellingham.
    I ride a 2007 Heckler, a 2000 Superlite and a 2001 Eddy Merckx Corsa road bike.

    I'm Ryan, I just moved back to Wash, lived in the Columbia River Gorge forever, then moved to Utah for a couple years. Now I'm in the camas/vancouver area.

    I used to ride XC .. but got into more downhilling while i lived in Utah, right next to Deer Valley and now i'm starting to build my confidence and do some FR.

    After coming out here i've only had the chance to ride blackrock (Oregon) once. Since it was raining no one was into the idea of hiking back up after one descent.. so hopefuly i'll be heading back down on a dry day soon.

    I want to ride post (Oregon) but i need to figure out how to get there.

    i ride a yeti as-x and a yeti dj.
    I'm hoping to build a 575 this upcoming year since i know of some good trail rides out this way... that the as-x is too big for.

    here is a shot of the as-x

    My ride?
    Diamondback Zetec DBR, Bomber Z4, Deore XT setup, Holowtech cranks, Koski bar/stem, Avid levers, Hayes db's. Decent bike for an old dude like myself.

    Wa!

    tim here from kirkland, originally from NW Indiana, transplanted 'bout 4 years ago. Recently re-discovered biking in all forms after being away for a while. Rode most all spring/summer on my road bike back and forth to work. Really loving all the great possibilities for trails out here in the ol' pac-NW. I love to haul ass on single track, as I can't really say that I've done anything else. Been riding St.eddie's cuz its close and that's the only one i know how to get to. i ride a trek7000 that's been made to a single speed, basically put together via the cavernous bins at recycled cycles in seattle. would like to get a nice full sussy one day. with all the possible trails that i could hit, i'm really hard pressed to nail just one or two down for the up and coming summer. look forward to being a part of this area's great mountain bike scene!

    Hello and welcome....

    A great resource for more riding areas for you include the www.bbtc.org website and also any of the Zilly biking guide books like "Kissing the Trail". Sounds like you have a good start....Ed's and a singlespeed go hand in hand. Another great place to ride is Tolt McDonald Park in Carnation and also Collonade in downtown seattle under the I-5 bridge.
    Feel free to email me anytime with questions or for suggestions and make sure you check out the BBTC as they are instrumental in progression of mountain biking and advocacy in our area.

    Welcome to the fold..... bennett.dennis@gmail.com

Been riding St.eddie's cuz its close and that's the only one i know how to get to. i ride a trek7000 that's been made to a single speed, basically put together via the cavernous bins at recycled cycles in seattle. would like to get a nice full sussy one day. with all the possible trails that i could hit, i'm really hard pressed to nail just one or two down for the up and coming summer. look forward to being a part of this area's great mountain bike scene!
