Things will be real quiet around here for the next seven days. I’m heading out with two friends on a week long, mostly dirt and gravel road bike tour. We’re hopping on the first train from Seattle to Portland Friday morning then making our way east to Bridge of the Gods. Saturday the real ride starts as we head north through Gifford Pinchot National Forest. We’ll wind our way out of the National Forest and all the way up to Snoqualmie Pass where we’ll head west down the Iron Horse Trail and back to Seattle. See you in a week!
