Yeah. Unless you're riding kind of fast and don't notice the small marker.

Interesting. I wonder if there's some research on the suggestion that the wilderness or monument designation increases foot traffic, causing greater overall resource damage. It's a compelling thought.

Not a ride but a neat place to stop when you do ride that way. The trailhead was an IAMC challenge site not long ago.

This organization is all over this. Attended a meeting last month and they are very proactive and can use any one who wants to help.

I am very thankful

I live in a wonderful state, I have a great family, great riding friends and enough income to afford the bikes of my dreams..


Happy Thanksgiving everyone. See you out there somewhere.

Hope everyone is having a great Holiday season.... don't spend too much

Came across this looks like fun, hell I didn't even know they were still making them. Bet that could haul half an elk out in one trip

Semi ride related, I'm considering a pair of these nice cheap winter gloves but I don't want to pay shipping or buy two pairs to get free shipping. Anyone local want to buy a pair with me to get to the free shipping threshold? Located in NW Meridian, I'd be happy to order and receive, just on the fence enough that I don't want to spend more than $17.50 .

I'm a bit worried that the XL will be tight on me, but I'm guessing I'll be able to recoup my costs if that happens.

I think I am going to order a couple other things from that site. I can order the gloves for you if you want.
