Todays ride 11-21 Mattawa

Definitly wasn't my favorite place, but do want to go back. So far no pics of the riding terrian.

Loaded the bike the night before. Had so much to do during the day, (like sit at Les Schwab for 3 1/2 hours for a flat), that had to load up in the dark. So I didn't get any pics of the snazy ramp I borrowed. I'm thinking I don't want to return it. Fits so good in there.

Stopped on the pass for a little pee brake. I was nervous about a few things, but everything turned out well. Bike didn't budge with the straps I got from Harbor Freight. Then there where the ends of the straps I was thinking would flap around. Ended up using Jeff's idea. Had a bunch of reusable zip ties.


Stopped again on the other side. You can see the wind farm barely. Rest stop had awesome bathrooms. Must have just been cleaned.


Just a couple of scenery






And then here is the famous cabin. Didn't sign the book thou. Everyone else did.


The sand was interesting. Fun but got kind of old. Especially when the trail was whooped out. Damn that was hard going. Don't see how those guys can do it all day long.
One of the guys had a vid cam. We will see if anything turned out. Also should have a few pics of the sand climb somewhere.
