Hi, It has been a while but I just got my bike running again and hoping to go on a couple rides this year. Both of my buddies that had bikes had close calls and decided to sell :mad: Wondering if there are any other local-ish T-dubers with plans for an outing in the near future? Cheers!

Hi TR, there aren't any specific WA rides planned as of yet, but some of us are always up for riding. You thinking on or off road or both? I'm nearby in the Redmond area. I know plumbstraight is always up for a ride. He is down in Montesano, so there are lots of good roads and trails around there.

Check in to the Washington specific thread for more. Also, check out my post in that thread about all of the group rides that I am aware of...here: http://tw200forum.com/forum/trails-off-road-adventure-riding/9133-washington-state-tdubers.html#post95126

The next thing I know of is the VME Tiddler Tour on Vashon Island. A great group ride, is June 25th this year. The Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1273748379388977/?ref=br_rs

Hey thanks for the information LRPPCER! I'll check out those links.

I'm mainly looking to do some off road riding and would love to meet up with some other tdubers. I haven't done too much as of late. I've spent more time on pavement with my bike than I care to admit. I'm long overdue for an adventure ride.

Cheers!

Id like to plan a weekend at the little naches area later in the summer. There is lots of dispersed camping and multiple trails and roads in the area. It will be a while as the trail systems arent even open yet. I will likely try to organise a whole weekend thing.

I look forward to some little naches, so I'll be looking for that.

Since the actual event was rainy, here is a follow up video of the same area in August.:

Thank you for the information on this ride Larry. I sent a request for the entry form and will check out your blog. It sounds like a lot of fun.
If you ever get the chance to meet and ride with Larry, you'd have a great time. He's a super nice guy and excellent rider. Wait till you see some of his pictures, believe me, you'll want to go riding with him!! :D

Nice!
It wasn't planned per se', but we rode a lot of the Washington/Idaho Palouse Region over the weekend. It was fun.

A little bit of a ride report on the Black Dog. Saturday we left Odell crossed into Washington and looped up past Appleton. Then down the Klickitat river to Lyle. Next we crossed the river at the Dalles, Then headed south on back roads. Finally coming out on 44 road near Camp Baldwin. Then with more logging roads made our way back to Odell. Weather a chilly 70. About 70 miles in Wa. and 65 in Or. Highest elevation 4392
Sunday the weather was about the same. Leaving Odell we crossed the Columbia again and made our way to Trout Lake via back roads. Then a loop past the Ice Caves and back to Trout Lake. Then back roads back to White Salmon, across the bridge back to Odell. There was still snow near the Ice Caves. About 110 miles.
The Tw loved the ride.

Unfortunately, it appears that I'm out for riding in Dirty Face this weekend due not being able to get there in time (Friday night commitments). However, I'm still available for a Saturday ride. If anyone else is up for one too then please let me know. I live in Bothell and willing to travel an hour or so to meet up.
