Currently working on the 2019 Cross Washington MTB route. Been out riding for the past 7 days. I started on the beach in La Push last Sunday with a goal of making it to the Idaho border in 10 to 12 days. The route crosses 700+ miles with about 44k of climb. It's been a fantastic ride so far...I'm through the rain forest/mountain portion of the route, 425 miles and 30k of climbing on the legs, now I'm headed into the desert. 280 miles to the ID border, and then another 280 miles to get home (I don't have a motorized ride home, so the plan is to keep pedaling back to Wenatchee) I'll put together a full TR once I finish the ride next week.
Here are a few pics from the past week
The beach in La Push
I rode the entire Olympic Discover trail... 60 miles, mostly single track, through a rain forest in rainy conditions... it was a tough day.
Looking back at the Olympics... I crossed the Pugeot Sound via bridge and ferry..
Entrance to the Snoqualmie Railroad Tunnel... It's 2 miles long... felt like riding in a walk-in cooler.
Rolling on the John Wayne/Iron Horse trail... the approach to the Colockum Wilderness
High up in the Colockum looking down on the Columbia
Kevlar taunt...that’s funny! Geez I did 20 on the glens falls bike path in this wonderful sun and heat. Parked at country club rd parking by sports page. Up to lake G then water refill at car then south into town for lunch
They have a brewpub and ice creme shop on the trail south of SP. wow downtown glens falls is kinda cool too. Bug free! Stay outta the woods.
Hear if keep going south a bit it hits the feeder canal trail to Hudson falls. Never been there. Next time. Any recs on lunch in Hudson falls?
