David Blaine in Spokane.
Six years of 24 hour racing, now I am getting into longer stuff- check link below.
There is a lot of riding near me but I prefer all day mountain rides- singletrack, forest service roads- it doesn't matter.
I want to explore the Kettle Crest Trail this summer.
I like all types of riding. My favorite kind of trail is singeltrack, technical or not, dosnt really matter as long as it flows good. I plan on takeing a day of leave soon and going to Capitol Forest and see what its like.
Patrick from Woodinville
I ride SS X country
I would like to ride Lewis river, The Great Divide
That's ok I'll walk it...

Addicted 2 building trail
Active trail builder in Port Townsend. I got here on a two year bike tour from the UK, ten years ago.
I love steep trails, log rides etc, but mostly ride tech. XC
I race Sport occationally. I ride a 2005 Dawg Dee-lux & an old Hei Hei.
Local- Gibbs Lake
Not quite local- Dry Hills
Next State- I loved a shuttle ride I did in Ashland OR , a few years ago.
Other- UPS To Pocupine Rim, UT
Abroad- Rotorua, NZ ( was my first official trail ride, I had scabs on my face for weeks!)
Dreams- Get up to Whistler, Fruita, Mt Saint Helens, race a 24 hour and a Super D or two
And I turn 40 next week.

Bob from Longview
I like techie XC, logs, rocks, and rides with vast vistas or waterfalls
going to Sedona this spring, looks like a spectacular area. have done lots of Moab, would recommend Moab to everyone, especially Bartlett Wash/Tusher Canyon.
Love the trails up by Mt St Helens, especially the lesser known/ridden ones.
Would like ride more of the Olympic Peninsula.
Generally ride SS or fixed, tho just put a Rohloff hub on the Vulture frame, very nice.
Local play in the park : http://red-haze.com/vids/UrbanLegendsmtbr.wmv
The more I know the more I know I don't know.
Let the bike ride the trail, you ride the bike.
Look where you want to go, not where you don't want to go.

Well, s#!t Bob
It looks like you're going to have to come up and get a tour.
I'll play. Formica, aka Penny S, Spokane
Co founder of the Fat Tire Trails Riders club here, up to my eyeballs in the Beacon Hill Project... I hope I still have time to ride!!!
Peter from Spokane.
I moved back here in 2005 and started building trails. Any type of trail is good although I really like flowy trails with pumps/jumps and berms.

It's a sticky now!
Kind of like an official attendance sheet. Cool, thanks all for stopping by.
Brandon from Seattle, Magnolia neighborhood.
Technical Cross Country (seems to be the favorite buzz word). I would really like to start racing/riding some endurance distance races, 50 and 100 milers. I used to race Sport XC now I race at the track (velodrome). Coming off a year and a half on the couch from a nasty broken tib-fib.
There are so many trails in WA that I have yet to ride! Teanaway, Triple Crown, anything in Capital Forest...
Greg from Bainbridge Island. Its all new to me so looking forward to some exploration. Been to Green Mt. but don't want to go back because of all the car breakins I hear about. Hit the Poulsbo managed area when I can. Looking forward to a few events and maybe some races as a way to find/check out new places. Looks like I need a good MTB photo. Did recently get a new ride, Stumpjumper FSR Elite, which is a real back saver over my old hardtail SJ but a little on the heavy side.
Tyler from Port Angeles.
Cross country and Fireroads, something with good views. I don't know how technical I need it as I'm just getting started back to riding after a break. I want to the Dungeness/Gold Creek when it warms up a little.
I love to run in the woods with you bikers, so silly with your machines.
I like trails with jumps because I like to take naps in the dirt holes that builders leave behind. I like beer and chipmunks too.
Anyone riding Thursdat night anymore? Brian had to take a hiadas from the Thursday night ride - where did you guys (EBX, Skook, milly) go to - Toluk?
Eric (although most people call me EB) from Seattle
Favorite Riding: Tech XC and FR.
Would like to get more proficient in dirt jumping.
Local rides to hit this year: St. Helens stuff, North Cascades rides....More high alpine stuff.
Next roadtrip: Rossland / Nelson in June, Blackrock/Post Canyon weekend in Spring
I'm also planning to participate in the Shore ripper series and maybe some of the Cap Forest Super D's. Both sound like low stress, high fun events.....
Eric from Spokane (another "EB")
Rock Climber first, Rider second. Long-time XC rider, riding a SC Blur LT.
Transplanted to Spokane 4 years ago from San Diego, CA. Love it up here!
Ridden the 24 Hours Round the Clock ride the last 2 years (OK, it was a team of 7 so it wasn't too intense...)
Love riding locally at Riverside and Beacon, but also enjoy the wealth of exploring that is available to us here in the Northwest. Got a long list of trails to hit this year!
My name is Barry. I live in Bellingham. I enjoy techy XC and FR (Galbraith, Shore and Whistler). I normally ride a 40# ish FR bike and to a lesser extent a mid 90's steel hardtail. Currently looking at 5 inch travel FS bikes for the techy XC stuff out there.
bj at st helens.jpg
Extreme stationary biker.
OLA ...my name is Rick and I have gone back to my XC roots.
I plan on hitting more rides in Oregon and a few in CA, Tahoe area.
Heard so much and never ridden with the Boatman.
Ghoulwe, you need to hook up with Penny "Formica" et al and get some great riding in over the long 4th weekend in July at Kettle Crest with us coasties.
Guaranteed to be a party. EE and Skookum know what I mean!
Good call DB to get us al together at the beginning of the year. Now, we just need to get Mellow Yellow to keep pushing for the ABS though for later in the summer...
I think I'll go biking tomorrow....
squish is good
Josh from Ellensburg, at least for the next year or two until college is over.
What's my riding style? I'll climb anything as long as I get a screaming downhill on the other side. I won't pretend to love the uphill slog, but it can be nice given the right conditions.
Ride the Taneum area mostly, try to hit up Devils Gulch a couple times over the summer and anything else thats within an hour drive.
