    On little cat feet

    The weather at home was cold, foggy, and pretty depressing.




    We took our chances and headed an hour east, looking for relief from the conditions.
    Luckily, it paid off, sunny and 60.


    Anthony found this jump to play with about halfway up our 5.5 mile, 2600ft climb


    Scott gives it a try


    The Three Sisters




    Hanging out at the summit, enjoying the weather and some trailmix. (Thanks Captn Singletrack)




    North and Middle Sister


    South Sister


    Richard begins the descent


    Ted's about to miss the right turn


    Tim knows where to go


    Anthony makes it look easy


    Ted and Bianca enjoying the down.


    No complaints from Anthony


    Richard on rails


    Deep in the forest


    The ride was over too quickly, but after a post ride beer and snack, it was time to return home, and hunker down for another week of this.

    Great pics! Wish I'da been there with y'all, Matt. I stayed home in the cold, foggy and pretty depressing stuff. Well, except for the fact that I live in Creswell, not Eugene --the sun came out down here! I pulled the XR400 outta the garage and snorted around the property for a while.

    Still, I wish I'da been there with y'all. King Castle roolz... next time...

    Nice stuff

    We had very un North Dakota weather this afternoon and I got a ride in on the road. But nothing as beautiful as that here.

    Alpine dry and fun

    We asked and heard Alpine was still dry, so a group of 9 of us rode Alpine...little snow in top meadow, but after that it was dry and fun.
    When we were sitting on that ridge on the first climb off 1911...my bike computer said it was 72 degree's...might have been a little off, but not much... by that point most of us were in shorts and short jersey...Westfir was kinda chilly...must of been 10-15 degree difference between Oakridge and Westfir.

    Rode Larison Rock this morning and it is mostly dry too.

    Take Care

    Sweet Singletrack

    We've been having great riding weather over here on the coast. The trails are in awesome shape, the days are warm compared to the valley.

    Come ride the Oregon Coast.

    Terry, I may be comin to the coast this Saturday to escape the fog if its still around. Will probably ride Perpetua, but maybe could come down and ride Winchester, or whatever other local trails yall want to show off. Will ya be around??

    Thanks for the cool pics. And some people wonder why we ride mountain bikes. I feel for those who will never experience (or want to experience) something like this in person.

    Where on the Coast you ask?

    Well us locals in the Florence, OR area like the Cape Mt. Horse Trails, we have our regular Saturday morning ride there starting at 8am. Then there is the Cummins Creek Trail at Cape Pertpetua if you can get a local to show you the trails you'll be in for a treat, its not long about 10-12 miles 5 up maybe 7 miles down sweet fun single track. For short stuff Sutton Lake Trail is a rootfilled spin. Siltcoos just south of Florence is a smooth fun loop and if you know where you can connect to County Line Rd and a mix of trails and logging rds.

    I'm planning on setting aside Saturday for riding and could probably get together for a ride at Perpetua or Cape Mt is anyone is interested.

    Perpetua!

    Sasquatch what time you think you'll be over this way. I might be able to round up some of the crew for Perpetua.

    I'm trying to get shaped up for the Whypass ACM, I had a blast last yr.

    Nice!

    It's been a couple of years since I've been up there. Love that trail!
    Is that sink hole alongside the double track halfway up any bigger? Big crater off to the side, you'd miss it screaming downhill, but it's a trippy geologic thing and I wonder at stuff like that sometimes.

    Hope the weather holds out just a little longer for a post Turkey ride this weekend.

    Yeah, that hole is still there, but doesnt look like its growing. I always wonddred whether that was from the mother of all tre stumps, or a sinkhole. The latter makes sense, since its along the area that they built a road, and brought in lotsa fill. Thankfully, it's far enough from the trail that you can't ride into it.
    Good Luck on the Turkey Day ride. The DOD does our annual T-day ride tonight, at our regular Wed night ride time. We'll be drinking and eating by a campfire late tonight.
