Rain, what rain?

First off, thank you to the guys who braved the run from Renton to Enumscratch
It was awful and you all have your reasons for turning back. But I only get a
number of kitchen passes and I did not want to waste this one

I met up with a group of riders just leaving Charlie,s at the same time Tom from TT was getting there. This is when the state trooper stopped and told us there was snow on Chinook Pass

Well it was decided to head on up to Green pass and check it out,
The farther up we got the less rain we found, at the top of Green Pass I am told that there was dusting of snow, I would not know as I wasi just tring to keep up with these guys.

We rode down to 410 and gassed up.




This shot is somewhere between the the thick gravel that kicked my ass and the water crossing.


We made it to camp, the first ones there

Here are some shots of camp



Beer and Chili was consumed.

Sun morning I took the big pig up to Quartz Mountain



It was a fun ride, thanks to all of the TT gang

The First Cycoactive GPS Ride Report PNW

Thanks to all you stalwart riders who braved the weather! It was great to see such a good turnout, even with the crap weather! Lots of boots and gloves drying by the fire!As I was in charge of bringing the food and beer, the reception I received upon arrival was exuberant to say the least!! And Spike thanks all of you for taking care of stick duty. He was wiped on the way home! The 6 hour trip home, thanks to the closed pass. I did manage to do a little more off road time in the Exploder, found a nice forest road that bypassed the wait outside of Ellensburg. Had quite the caravan behind me! So again, thanks to all who made the trip, and we look forward to seeing you all next year. And kudos to Mike Paull and Chris Polland for making the trek with side cars!!

Hi Jill,

Mucho thanks for bringing the beer and chili - now you know how to instantly make 25-30 new 'best friends'!

Looking forward to checking out your 2-wheeled ride next year - will you have room for Spike on it?


- Brian

Spike fits pefectly in our 35 litre panniers, we have pictures to prove it!

Just kidding, but I will post them once I get them from Simon. He froze his little ass off anyway so did I once the drunk wore off! But it was a blast, and to all the little boy's who didn't make it, how do you ride in Seattle if you don't ride in the rain? You were missed, but that was more Manny's for us
See you all at the next gathering

easy now, I ride 365 days a year around here!!! I'm not going to make excuses, though. I am really bummed that I didn't have the stones to finish this one off, but as I mentioned, the last two times I went camping, it rained like hell, and so I was really not in the mood for it this time.

I did drink plenty of beer Saturday night, if that's any consolation.

Again, I'm bummed I missed it, after having looked forward to it for so long.

because every time I go out with you, I hurt myself.

I think the 14K I've logged on the GS since February is self explanatory
