 I ride there, but not like this. Much, much slower. I do, however walk over that log so I guess we are basically at the same skill level.

 Muddy tires + slippery log = "Ah, Hell NO!"

 @MrPink51: agreed. Smart move. A similar log on my local mountain I’ve ridden a hundred times claimed a couple of my ribs last spring after a very wet BC winter.

 @dustinbmx74: I love how they left this in the video.

It's like, Shred, shred, shred, PSA, more shred.

I've broken more ribs than I care to think about. Wish someone would have warned me about all the bonehead things I would do later in life.

 Love the map from a bike park that's a couple hundred miles away from where he's riding

 But ironic considering the name of the other trail right next to it.

 "Oh hell no". That's what I say to wet skinnies too. Usually because they make me calculate the price of a new derailer as I approach them.
  • 6 0
 No need to calculate - I know it's $98. Ended up doing a lowside on a wide wet bridge surfaced with Trex on a pathetic multi-use (hiking) trail.

 Tunes are a great fit with the wet sublime woods. Love the added humor by walking the old freeride log. Great visual and sound quality. Dig it!!

 That's a new freeride log.

 Logs like that are slick as ice when it's wet. Even walking on them is questionable at best.

 @K9er nah dawg, that's the duthie backcountry

 Pretty sure it's the Burke Gilman trail actually.

 I guess you're right, how could I mistake a clandestine trail for something as mundane as "Duthie backcountry"... lol

 @bilumburg: I always mix them up too...

 Walk that damn log every time it's wet... also several times when it's dry too. Skinnies are not my friend.

 Luke AND Jasper. Faved before watching, no questions asked. A little more chill riding than Luke’s usual ‘ripping down the trail’ vids, but just perfect smooth flow. Music has an almost Supernatural feel to it????

 pretty sure thats bootcamp

 doood bootcamp is getting gnarly!*!?!

 Onyx hubs "sound" so good, just the sound of the suspension and tires smashing roots!

 Can someone make a list of all Luke Strobel videos in one place? I've not watched one yet that doesn't make me want to go and ride.

 The Silver Mtn Park map is a good touch

 Nearly raw with athmospheric music, great work! Pinning looks easy here.

 Everyone in the PNW is this pinned. Luke is just the most photogenic.

 I don’t ride elevated skinnies either.

 He would have ridden it if it was dry, I bet. It's not a hard one.

 What trail is this?

 If you want to shuttle north bend just go further up the freeway .ive never seen anybody shuttle 27 and have been riding 27 since 2003,it’s not that big of a lap to pedal
  • 5 7
 Evergreen should shuttle. They would make additional capitol and we will make riding up hill a thing of the past. It's a win win Smile
  • 4 1
Why would you want to get rid of riding up the hill ?
  • 18 1
 @Rider656: How about a USB e-bike/drone/vape charging station at the top?
  • 4 4
 Ok so when you go to a bike park you stop and say "chair lift? No thanks, I rather pedal up" ok I got it, as long as your true to yourself and not a hippocrate.
  • 5 0
 @Rider656: If you don't get the difference between 27 and Stevens, I've got a crate full of hippos to sell you...

 @Rider656: PB has been taken over by the alt right, pedaling fanatics. Logical comparisons won't work with these folks. The roadie/ environmentalist mentality is too much to reason with.

 Pretty mellow climb. Usually do a few laps in a day.

 @slayerdegnar: so true. I almost started to feel like the black guy in the movie "get out" (2107), and thats scary.
  • 2 4
 Lol at the log. it wasnt even 2 feet off the ground.
  • 3 0
 It's about a seven foot drop into the creek at the high point...
  • 3 1
 As someone who has broken ribs and a clavicle on a log that was only a few feet off the ground, I can tell you, some of us avoid them like the plague, especially when wet. The risk to reward is not worth it. I get little pleasure out of completing one and have no shame walking. Skinnies and logs need to dodo the F out.

 OK vaginas. Clearly you're an example of why all mountain bikes exist. So cross country riders can feel like big kids.
