Re: Bikes!

The camera tends to flatten the trail but Brian stepped on to the trail and shot from the next rise. It was super flowy so you don't lose all the elevation at once like a race trail. We did have to climb a lot of fire road and single track to get up there.

Re: Bikes!

That ride looks murderous.  Sure only 18 hundred feet over 18 miles, but you have to do that over and over... looks tiring. Also, that's a long ride.  We did a ride Sunday that was just over 20 miles and I'm still tired.  It was a converted railway right of way, so minimal elevation gain/loss.  Just exactly my speed.

Re: Bikes!

Yeah, the climbing was easy but long. We did 16, 23, and 18 miles on the three days. We didn't to that loop as we climbed to do Hickory Ridge to Ridgeline multiple times on days 2 and 3. The day 1 climbing (Cedar Ridge?) was more technical and rigorous. We explored enough to figure out there are better ways to skin this cat without excessive gravel road riding. We did an ugly gravel climb to ride Rocky Ridge which I don't think needed to happen.

I think I've sorted out my image manipulation particulars...

Here's a screenshot of the ride.  We traveled westward along the first half (almost) of the Cascades Trail, from Sedro Woolley to Hamilton, halfway to Concrete.  Note the grade graph at the bottom.  God bless trains.

Re: Bikes!

Here are a few shots from this weekend's ride, the Olympic Discovery Trail along the north shore of Lake Crescent from Fairholme to the east end of the lake on East Beach Drive.

This is the start of the trail:
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3c250vh9NtiUwh8RcMQ31P1gscFhrjxXaB3YqsBJzzU-yyF2TntSavalCro_N40hV-QVL0hhxQ2lTLLbfJWISWeqGPgKr_-vaTTtH8ZtZjqAoazVourse_boZiVy7npGnVQ78VYYB1PEeDefYRn0-bwTA=w1160-h870-no?authuser=0




And this is a lovely panorama from mid-ride:

That was the pointy end, here's where it started:
The pointy end buried in the asphalt is about 16 inches in diameter, goodness knows how big it is back at the stump, thirty yards up the bank.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3cqHcowMRxEwNB2DG89yvtmjk-77G0gGL_1TywwjpOJ6nXRzJlJ_1GD37hTb4xlof5mKnuyf81_jetyJdqAxOVzIaXlbc8P6mLmTHWqN_J2c__9yi8VPLu-q6yF7aRd3o3opRJpao2W2F5kcwAoI-7diA=w653-h870-no?authuser=0



This particular stretch of the trail is quite picturesque.  You can see the high bank to the left and it continues down the same slope to the lake hundreds of feet below.  At some points the distance between the trail and the shore HORIZONTALLY is quite small, like a cliff.  Not here though  We could see the blue of the water but no easy way to get there.

Twil's talent as a photographer is self evident.  This is evidence of her massive skill as a trip planner.  Note at the bottom the grade graph as we travel from start to finish from left to right.  God bless Twil.

Hi Braden
Thanks for coming by.  So the trail you recently marked was audited and we need you to retrace your path with this stack of "1/2" stickers.  Next time pay attention to the start button on your google maps directions app...

Yeah, ... not all the mile markers had "1/2" suffix, but... So. Weird.

Re: Bikes!

Why bother wearing a helmet in some of those?  If you spill, the helmet isn't going to do a thing other than help with identification by dental records.

Sure, when they find the helmet they'll know who the head in it belonged to. https://cellar.org/images/newsmilies/skull.gif

Re: Bikes!

In 1907 a French woman thought since people have upped their speed and range with bikes we should do the same for animals. It has to be a trike with the big back wheel out toward us and the front and rear pedals in the middle. It's not going to work with that big wheel going through the horse. Although she is French....
