Finally, some love for Corvegas.

I was just lookin' for a Corvallis meet up, but would happily, uh, JACK(?)

So when's the next shindig, and where? I mean it's a whopping 67 and sunny out there right? Even the most OCD, Chrome Monster, Garage Queener can't pass that up.

JACK, JACK, JACK!!

You do know about the PNWriders.com meet-up at the 2nd street pizza store, 1st Wednesday of each month=7pm in Corvallis? Check them out on the web.

Several of us adv guys are heading over to Enterprise for the June 16-19 Hells Canyon Gathering 2011. You're welcome to tag along, if you're out of school by then. We're heading over June 15 from Albany/Lebanon/Corvallis area. Went last year and had a ball, so going again.

Well, the snow's slowly melting....
Rode up in the Monument Peak area south of Gates yesterday, got stopped by snow at 3,600 ft. There's a lot of lower elevation roads in that area and we were able to do a nice loop via Tom Rock. Previously, we've dropped down into the Thomas Creek drainage from that road....
The photo is from a view point just east of Tom Rock, looking north, Gates Hill in the foreground, Rocky Top to the right......

Sounds and looks like a good time! I have been wanting to get back up to that area for a while now... Gonna have to do it soon. Glad to hear the snow is finally starting to melt.

Rode up into the Monument Peak area again on Sunday. Got stopped by snow at 4,000 ft just west of Monument Peak where the road crosses over East Rock Creek. I'd imagine that in a couple of weeks the whole area will open up



Then we made our way down and east past a bright yellow "quad and automobile exclusion device"
The next photo is looking west down the North Santiam valley, overlooking Gates and Mill City. We were at about 3,800 ft there....



Fun ride, but starting to get dusty !!!

Little North fork to Detroit via USFS rd 2270

Had a short riding window open up on Sunday & took a quick solo trip. Attempted USFS rd 2207 to Detroit & was stopped by snow @ 3,451' according to my GPS. Turned around & came home before the wife knew that I was gone......

Is that USFS 2207 ?
Based on where the snow is now it will be a least 3 weeks before the summit is clear, the last 2 miles is on a north facing slope and takes a while to melt.
From rides so far, it looks like I'm getting places 2 weeks earlier than the heavy snow year 2008.
Will be interesting to see if the recently fixed slide area survived the winter - hope so :)

Went up 2207 yesterday, from the other side - French Creek out of Detroit in the jeep (ATGATT consisted of shorts, sneakers & a seat belt *grins*).
No road closure signs, the slide is stabilized and open, though kinda narrow :



The snow starts about 1/2 mile above the slide at 4,000 ft.

Riding

I know someone that knows the area around you pretty well. We do some rides in the spring, summer and fall. We do an occasional winter ride too if possible.

I've been working on my yard for a few weekends but I am about due for a ride soon too. Let me know if you'd be interested. I could pass your information on the my buddy. He knows the area, I just get lost.

We're average guys in our 50's and 60's. Guns are ok. We both ride DR's so about the same kind of bike almost.

Let me know.

Frank

Rode up to Monument Peak (south from Gates) yesterday and looks like the last of the snow has melted.

Was hoping to loop around west to High Rock then Tom Rock, but caught up with a backhoe and truck pushing the winter debris off the road, decided to turn back.

Looks promising though :)

I think that Edgy & I will be up there somewhere tomorrow. Yet TBD, but likely...

I went up 2207 from the Little North Fork side yesterday (Friday). Met snow past Opal Lake but was able to easily get around it. One tree down over the crest on the Detroit side but that was also easily cleared on a bike. Roads are clear.
