Good times

Here is my story and a video of china hat powerline in case you're missing it as much as I am. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7Pcvj_GMcA


My bike looked liked this 2 days before I left for the rally and I didn't think I would get to go. ( Hmm, maybe I can got with just one cylinder?)

I'm so glad I rushed and got it all working for this ride.

I left Vancouver at 10pm Monday night and hooked up with Ian and Darryl Tuesday morning near Seattle. We had a great fast paced ride down to Hood River.


Thanks to Jeff for putting us up on his property where we had a great meet and greet with tools, meat, and beer.





At the rally we quickly compiled a great group of beer drinkers and only the great trail selection of our local guides could pull us away from our Bend brewery crawl.

Lets go "there"...


Ok..are we "there" yet?







My favorite trails were the unnamed single track by the canal we rode the last day and the China Hat powerline area.

I left Bend via the China Hat Powerline trail and made a 2 day run on back roads and pavement back to Canada.

All loaded up with my Giant Loop and tent but getting in one last ride...

Big thanks to Ian, Darryl, Justin, Jeff, Claude, Matt, Bartek, Scott, and all the other riders. Until we ride again,
