... I'm planning on getting in some big rides the week of July 30—Mount Rainier, Orcas Island, possibly Hurricane Ridge, not sure where else. Details to follow. Gonna watch the weather, see where I'm inclined to go. "Big" is subjective; I'm more interested in climbing (for the views and photo opps) than I am distance.
It'd be fun to hook up with other riders so e-mail me if you're interested in joining me.
Tentative plans are sorta(ish): Sunrise-Chinook (Ride 25 from my book), Paradise from Stevens Canyon (Ride 26) and I want to climb Mount Constitution on Orcas Island (Ride 7 or sim.) Other possibles include Mount St. Helens, Hurricane Ridge or any cool ideas someone else might have. (I really, really want to do the Winthrop-Conconully ride but my mountain bike is in a state of disrepair right now.)
