    This thread is for all of the inmates, but especially for those of us up on the Olympic Peninsula, around Port Angeles. (Joyce, Sequim, Blyn, Port Townsend, Etc.).
    Post up if you're looking for someone to ride with or if you have some helpful news about the area that might help others.
    I am available to ride the forest service roads and single track trails most days.

    (fine print)
    In these uncertain times, I understand the need for social distancing.
    It is my hope that there will be some of us around after this pandemic has passed.
    Please use your best judgement and protect yourself and others. STAY HOME IF YOU'RE SICK!

    Three wheels here. PA east. I know there's others but they're laying low. :hide

    Port Townsend? Might turn into a spectator sport.

    Parks are mostly closed up here on the peninsula. This is Panorama Vista County Park located near Sequim, it was closed.

    I just moved to Poulsbo and need to meet some other riders on the peninsula. Even just a road ride. Next weeks weather looks good.

    Some views from the Brinnon area. When things start opening up again, I could be talked into doing some riding.

    Alright fellas, Californian with a few questions. How many months of DS vs street riding do you get in PA? Do y'all have DS and street bikes or is the area more suitable for DS riding only?
    I visited PA two years ago with my wife since her sister lives there. We're considering moving up there next year. Thanks fellas!

    All depends on your tolerance for riding in the rain... Invest in good rain gear and it's possible to ride road and dual sport year round.

    As for how many bikes, well that's a personal storage issue...

    I live in Hansville. I sold my ADV bike, so now I'm a Road Warrior. I'm out riding a lot when it isn't raining.

    I got out a while today and found this hill. Anyone ever had the pleasure of descending this in the mud? :p3rry IMG_5119.JPG

    I couldn't resist taking the beast out for a little two wheel fun today. Can you guess where this was taken?

    Forest Service says no plans on fixing a washout near Fulton Cr on NF2510. Did you look over in that area?

    I think I turned around just before that point, I was able to ride the 2510 to the seamount Rd intersection. That day I decided to go up the hill and see where the snow stopped.
