    cool video, but riding enduro on a trials bike seems like way to much fun mixed with an unfair advantage on those tight trails lol. :freaky

    What are you thinking -- out and back in the same day, or a 2-day trip?

    and this is not probably the best place to post but here it is.

    I have a house in the Cedar area and I need a woodshed built in June when I'm back for a few weeks. I've called around and can't seem to find anyone reliable, no return calls; maybe the job is too small.

    Anybody know a good handyman type that can build a cedar sided 12 * 8 ft shed. Its really simple, but I don't want to do it, holidays:wink

    If anyone knows someone reliable, let me know pls.

    Thanks

    Nice long ride on Saturday, Caught the 8Am ferry to Tswassen then rode down to the new Cabelas on I5 then back up on Chuckanut drive. Every rider in NW Washington state must have been on Chuckanut. Once we got back to BC we rode out to Chilliwack on Avenue 0 and every Rider in the lower mainland must have been there.
    Riders know how to avoid freeways.
    Try out the Empire Ale House in Mt Vernon if you get the chance, we had a great late lunch there on the way back.

    Fabulous time at the Orca Run this weekend! Many thanks to all the people involved in putting on this great ride :clap
    There was everything from wide gravel highway to overgrown single track - 140km of fun!
