Check out the new issue of Adventures NW, out now. Lots of great stories and photos including one by yours truly about the wonders of riding a 29er. Speaking of photos (we were, weren't we?), that fetching cover shot is mine too. Pretty cool, huh?
In other news, I'm closing in on closing in on a 29er single-speed, probably the Redline Monocog Flight. I'm looking for something else to do this fall and it occurred to me that it might be cool to do a little more running than I have of late, and to also ride a single-speed. Not sure why, but at least the combo will be new to me. Still undecided about this year's Mount Baker Hill Climb. Having trouble getting as skinny as I need to be. These pizzas and cookies and such keep finding their way in front of my face.
In other other news, got a story in tomorrow's Seattle Times about me hike to Cascade Pass-Sahale Arm.
