    Of course What I meant was I will be there at some point, but may not be there until later if it is pouring rain in the AM.

    Looks like 20-30% chance of rain, we may get lucky:

    If anyone wants to help clear MO for the racing onslaught and block all the cheater short cuts real good, I'll be out there tomorrow about 3 and on to do so and could use some help clearing Cuss Hollow as well as the rest of the loop. PM or just show up. Thanks!

    I see logos for Trek, Jamis, Specialized, Kona and Transition, Rocky Mountain, Santa Cruz, and Diamondback, plus a whole lotta shops, so I'd guess way more brands to try out than just the event sponsors. Should be a killer selection!

    does 8hrs of volunteer time count? :P

    I'm hoping I can get a free pass for Saturday. I've got a lot going on that day though.

    Just FYI, June 9th is Cascade's Flying Wheels ride and the route is going to take thousands of roadies up the Issaquah-Fall City Rd. (past the service entrance/GR trail), right on SE Duthie Hill Rd. and then left on SE Issaquah-Beaver Lake Rd. Pack some patience.

    6/9 - Clearing and service road

    Because of the number of vendors and the very tight tolerances space-wise we ask those with access keys to the service gate to refrain from parking inside the park itself. If do feel you need to park along the service road, PLEASE make sure your vehicle is as far off the road as possible (some of the demo trucks are rather large).

    Event Parking at Duthie

    Yes, event parking has been arranged with the LDS church.

    I'll be in the Evergreen booth today, stop by and say hi!

    Agreed, loads and loads of fun today. Tested lots of new bikes out too, for some reason it seemed easier today than in years past, less waiting for people to return bikes this time.

    Some of the most fun I've had in ages. Being able to test out a bunch of bikes was awesome, but the entire atmosphere was just great. Thanks to all who work so hard to put these events together. As a new mountain biker (two months), it was so helpful to be able to try out different suspension designs, geometry, etc. It is also amazing to know that there is such a welcoming and cooperative community of bikers here in Washington. Friendly people all around. Met a new riding buddy. Nothing but praises for the event! Thanks again.
