B, B, B and Beyond

The bikes;


The boy;


My son lives in Idaho, so every year I load up the bikes and make the drive to Boise and beyond.....
I tried to get some Cali boys to go up there, but you know what they say

It rained good the week before I got there, temps were cooling and the fires were laying down, perfect timing.

16 hours up the lonely hwy, get some sleep and stock up for the next stop

the "hard and technical part", oh great.....

Some of the Boise boys met us up there, we took an easy "blue trail" to start with;

what you can't see is the rain rut chock full o' rocks and bikes and bodies steaming.....

An easy lil switchback;


smooth buttery rocks


MotoMergan used to be a Cali boy but he has adapted well to the northern climbs;


You definitely have to earn the views around here;


Going to wash the bikes now, more tales of work, beauty and adventure later

25 miles in 5 hours?! That was quite the trail with the first 5 miles being the hardest....

At this point we had a couple tired riders and a yellowjacket victim who were thinking of home


or at least a place to rest


A few of us still had some gas so we thought we'd ride up this


we cleared 3 or 4 trees off the trail until we gave up, ironwood deadfall isn't easy to cut or break....




Oh well, might as well go do some easy trails

the rest of the easy stuff to finish up the first day;

nice bridge, trail user fees at work! Carry a saw if you go that way....


Meadow to Loon Lake, we thought about hiking to the plane crash, for 1/2 a second.....


Secesh, labeled black diamond on the map, uh no barely a blue (this section - heard the other section "has some spots"







trails end;


so easy a snake could do it;


Sorry, no pics of the cold beverages, hot fire, millions of stars or the rib eye dinner

Day 2 started with ice on the seats and hot coffee

The creek was steaming (outlet from hot springs)


Back through the easy stuff


across the river


and upstream this time


not how it's done


good dirt, good trail


somewhere we missed the trail junction and did not stay on the river, we heard it has some scary spots....next time
We ended up on Whangdoodle trail, what a name, what a trail!

naked trees




back to the green stuff




back to work
