    Everything.
    But, long backcountry epics are best.
    A new local trail!

    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.

    E from Snoqualmie -

    I like it all……and the list keeps getting bigger.

    New Trails for this year, you’ll just have to wait for the Ride Reports……….isn't that how it works Gearz. Anyways, plan on riding in Canada, Washington, Montana, Idaho and Oregon this year.

    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

    Favorate Trails:

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.....

    Peace!

    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.

    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....

    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.

    Heh, Goulwe shows up at meetings once in a while.

    Is Kettle Crest locked down for the weekend of the 4th? That one is always iffy for me....

    Jon, aka Ole Grey Hair, Seattle XC rider
    Western Washington Trails I ride to keep myself moving, shed some pounds and feel the rush when I keep the rubber side down and actually pull off something cool w/o falling off the bike.
    I've been riding at Anacortes since there's - no tree's down and working on clearing Tolt.
    Used to live at Crystal Mountain Resort - so have ridden lots of White River Trails, Enumclaw area and Victor Falls before it got shut down.

    I'm Kyle as well, although I mostly ride over here on the wet side. Mostly St. Eddie's/Big Finn and Tolt with occasional excursions to Stella around Longview (Although due to work unfortunately not this year) and to Central Oregon. Mostly ride XC on my trusty Vulture SingleSpeed or ride around on my various freakbikes

    Did Someone say Washington State?




    Here I am with my WSU Cougar Bike Jersey. The picture was taken yesterday at my South Cle Elum training area. Clutchman, Borneo, etc beware as I now have a FS bike to go along with my HT. The lineup is a Salsa HT and Giant NRS1. There is news to report friom Roslyn. Plans are firming up for a Poker Ride, Short Track Race and XC race all around Roslyn in the first week of August.

    What kind of riding do I do? Lots of riding, mostly road. Favorite trail is still Taneum Ridge if you get a nice flow going. Favorite race track is Winthrop but any race will do. Best race in Washington State-Leavenworth Bike and Brew. Next bike will probably be a road bike. My last race was an endurance race of 12 hrs a couple of weeks ago in Temecula, CA. Next mountain bike race will be 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo. Looking forward to the racing season starting.

    Hello I'm Linda,
    I've biked with a few of these reprobates who've already posted. I'm mostly a lurker here, though.

    I like to stay in the air as much as possible or just give me a good ladder or log pile. Lift assist is even better.



    I currently have 3 bikes:
    Yakuza Kumicho R for the truly fun stuff
    K2 Tirade for all my XC needs
    Transition Trail or Park ( I like to call it my White Trash Bike) that I use for DJ (at least once I learn to do them properly ) or BMX/skatebarn style.

    Always looking to notch some new rides for the year. A first this year will be Borneo's Bend trip. Also want to do a first by going to the Shore and Silver Star for lift-assist riding this year. And of course, become more acquainted with Whistler.

    I've just done a BMX clinic in Abbotsford BC and riding on the track was alot of fun.

    But the bottom line is, it's all good!

    Smile Hey All!

    My name is Qben and I live in Anacortes. That is where I do most of my riding since my commute is single track. I'm new to the forum (first post)! I ride a 2001 or there abouts Giant Rainier, but have my eye on an Ibex within the next year. I used to ride quite a bit at Tiger mountain and in the Black Diamond area.

    I bent the fork crown (my own fault for using a 14" kiddie bike for for the crown) on my rides back and forth to the Velodrome so I had to fab a new fork. Besides, sidecar bikes are much more social. I might bring the chopper to Spring BC if I can get away from work.

    Trace here, I love all kinds of riding from singletrack to freeride and skatepark. I have a Fetish Cycles Obsession and a Kona Smoke built up, a Kona Coiler Deluxe on layaway and a fresh-built Transition Dirtbag.

    ID: Doug in Snoqualmie by way of NC, originally from NJ.

    Style: Love to ride anything XC from forest roads to technical downhills and the more log-overs the better. Currently on a Giant NRS C2 but have a 29er softail coming soon. Would try FR but am too much of a puss. I also ride a road bike "for training purposes only" I pretend not to enjoy it. At home in bibshorts or baggies and have been known to enjoy Spinervals videos.

    Favorite WA Trail: Dungeness River / Gold Creek.

    Looking Forward To: Kokopelli's Trail (Moab to Fruita) and 24hrs of Spokane in May, and TransRockies stage race in August.

    I'm Jubilee.
    Moved to Seattle from Spokane/Coeur d'Alene about 6 mo ago.
    I've been into long trail rides, cx, xc racing, urban, and 24 hr racing.
    Now I seem to have fallen in with a group of hoodlum punk trail building beer swilling northshore-philes.
    My Times seem to have been relaced with platforms.
    I find it's just my style, and soggy riding suits me fine.
    Looking forward to more long-hour scenic riding this summer too....
    Taking it easy for all you sinners.

    Hi All. Brian from Woodinville.

    Mostly ride the local stuff, PV, Tolt, Tokul, Sawyer.

    Last summer, I was able to get out into the Cascades for some great rides: Cutthroat Pass, Kachess, Rat Pac, Mt. Margaret, Ape Canyon. This year, I plan to hit Central Oregon, and Angel's Staircase in the Winthrop area.

    Most distant ride: Last friday (2/2/2007) I took a day and rode in Taipei Taiwan. I wrote up a little ride report if you are interested:

    Im OLY and I was interogated..

    I like to ride as much as a father of 2 can. Capitol Forest, Green Mtn, Lk Sawyer are the norm, but I have been known to join skookie in many of his "out there" rides.

    Atop Hamilton butte.... (still the best ride ever)


    I used to race....I think this photo says alot....


    Summer time also opens up for day trips to the .....
    Shore....

    and Whisler. .....


    This Summer I would like to go ride some more in Oregon (my home state). Hood River, Black Rock, MRT...

    I will be also stoked to be a part of the rebirth of racing in good Ole Cap forest. SUPER D!!
