Your pics made me want to share, great view on that last pic. Climbing 2000 meters is "ballllz" but the view and the alpine air makes it all worth it. The downhill is also tup

Brown Pow lap today, although it was not so brown powish......I think I prefer it wet, rooty and snotty rather than dry and blown out! 4 miles UP (2,000' elevation gain), 2 miles DOWN. Big Grin

Went on family holiday in Denmark and Sweden this year. No riding in Denmark, but Sweden was nice. Took off early one morning with the rest of them still fast asleep. Tried to find and ride a trail I found the entry of two days before. Did not work out as planned, but made it back in time regardless. Old bike because it was easiest to fit the MacRide to.















MacRide action:

2yo son repeatedly told me that he liked the woods we rode through.




Also surprisingly, the 5yo daughter was mostly OK with riding 18km a day twice in a row. It took some arguing and lots of sweets, but all hope is not lost, I guess.

Last weekend I checked off a trail I have seen on trailforks for years. Odd one in a very hot area that we’re typically only there on day trips with the kids. But Wife and I got a weekend away for our anniversary without kids so I had a bit of time. Chelan Butte DH trail. I didn’t think much of it as its not one you hear about, but knew the views would be spectacular of Lake Chelan and the Columbia river. Climb was pretty...continuous...about 3K feet in maybe 6 miles but literally always pointed up with some grueling pitches at the end of long inclines. The trail itself ended up blowing away my expectations. Steep, loose and eroded in very sketchy places. Extremely fast trail. Put the Unit to the test and could definitely use a new set of pads after that one. Very fun.

Psychedelic Wolf in the wild...Columbia River in the background

Looking down the trail drops left and follows the ridge before plummeting.

Looking up the first section.


Lake Chelan from the climb

Plateau view close to the top

Maybe half way down Columbia River view


Moar lake

Pics from broken phone don’t do it justice.

Looks pretty awesome Ster! Love that part of the State, but I don't get there nearly enough. Your pictures help get me motivated to plan ahead a bit.

Its sometime difficult to find the best rides when visiting new places for sure.


Sounds like you have your son and daughter on the right track, your boy is soon to be hooked on riding bikes in the woods.Salute



Must be a lot of interesting history in these regions

These old bike parts laying around are pretty rad.

I think i prefer the moisture as well, we are still in an abnormally long stretch of monsoon weather, longest stretch of continuous hero dirt that I can remember, Been lucky to have done a lot of riding lately with out getting caught in severe thunder storms...

So Washington is interesting in that the west side of the cascades is rainforest and the east side is high desert. I dig the east
