I had a great time last week hanging out at the new Stevens Pass Bike Park which offers the only chair lift-assisted mountain biking in the Northwest U.S. Two trails are open now--a blue and a black diamond--with hopefully a third by the end of the season, sometime in October.
|Amber and Chelsey of Leavenworth get ready to rip it up.|
|A bridge, a nice wide bridge.|
|Me, gettin' my downhill on.|
The park is usually open Friday through Sunday but is closed to riding this weekend because it's hosting the NW Cup Finals, the premier downhill mountain bike race series. You can still go to watch though. In fact, for $10 you can ride the chairlift, pick out a spot and see some serious downhillers get dirty.
I'm writing a story about Stevens Pass Bike Park for The Seattle Times so look for that coming August 18!
