The first wash out you get to from the Cashmere side is the trickiest part.
Getting caught on 7100 on a powered bike by the authorities would be the issue. I rode 7100 last year on the MTB too, and I guess there is no plan to fix the damage on it for motorized use. It's pretty tame compared to when you get onto the Gulch or Mission Ridge trails ;-)

I am sure it was him. We passed each other on a corner, but he took one look at me and got the heck out of there

Is 7100 closed from the mission side?, we went down it from there on GSA's and made it fine except the last mile or so witht he washout and lugging 700lb bikes around the gate.

I didn't ask that specifically. I asked if 7100 was closed and the answer was yes. I assumed it was from both ends, but I have only seen the gate on the Cashmere end.

So, I got to meet a contractor in Cle Elum at 12 on Sat to finish my well and build a pump house. Any of you fella's want to stay at the property Sat Night after the ride instead of driving all the way back home? Got a good fire pit, BBQ and plenty of camping for ya!

We even could ride Sasse and Hex Sun morning and head back Sun afternoon? :Just a thought since I'm I'll be riding over there and staying Sat & Sun anyways.

More the merrier...

If any of you guys have room for an extra guy and a bike, I'm in.

Just back from a 4-day Broken Islands (Vancouver Island) kayak trip. Time to get some dirt on! I am on vacation until Monday and looking at heading east for some trail riding. Maybe start mid week at Foggy Dew or Devils backbone and swing south by the weekend and hookup with you guys. Mad River trails open yet? FS site says call.

That's a beautiful area! I want to hike up to Minotaur Lake one of these days, but I hear it's a rough one. Does he ride alone often, Tom?

He does ride alone pretty often, He is a careful rider and don't really get into single track stuff solo. Being 70 most of his retired buddies up there are not too eager to get out. I know he does a lot of solo 100+ mile days up there on his sled in the winter as well. He has been looking into a SPOT but after that stranded rider thread he isn't sold. We might take a jont from Lake Wenatchee to Chelan and back this weekend.
