Saddle up and get your bike on, Troy from the Dirtworld Mt. Biking team sent out an e-mail with a sick ride over the rockies...too bad I will be in LA at a wedding. I thought it would be worth while to put it out there in case you were interested in getting it!
From the site:
"This is a 145-mile mountain bike ride starting in Vantage Washington and ending at the Red Hook Brewery by Redmond. While navigating the well laid out course you will climb UP the Cascade Mountains, THROUGH the Cascade Mountains (literally!), and DOWN the Cascade Mountains."
If you do this ride let me know I would love to hear about it.
