No worries man. Let me know if anything needs to be sorted and it will be handled. I just got that bike back from loaning it to a friend. I loved the geo on that bike.

Unemployment is fun! Hit that for sure.

Went out yesterday and did some more buffing on the pump track. It's getting pretty close. Fun to ride and I can start looping what's been shaped already. Just needs some clay to smooth it out. Talked to the city workers who will try to bring clay over within 1-2 weeks. They would like to see the pump track complete within 1 month for a upcoming "bike parade" or something.



After working on the track I went to a meeting about our local trail system. This year is going to be fun. We will have a some "arterials" finished soon. After that we can start interconnecting trails to one another. I'm really excited about putting in some really flowy trails with rhythm sections.
They city has been working with us. We have been using GPS to plot out trails and they are overlaying it on to geographic maps (seen pinned in the background).



A local lawyer has been helping with a 501 (c) 3 designation. Once that is in place some verbalized funding will come our way that will really help with trail building and upkeep.
Anyhoo, time to pack up and load. Headed out to Cle Elum this afternoon. Hope everyone else is having fun rides!

Are the trails labeled? Or should I just get a map from a local shop? Thanks for the tip.

Default Dry side trails

My riding buddy and I have been talking about doing some dry side trails when the weather is crappy over here on the east side.

Can anyone recommend a good dry side singlet rack with some personality that is within range of the 90 I would sure be interested.

We like scenery and good technical single track, jumps drops constructs are a plus.

Thanks Russ

I'd get a map. Purchase also helps the local builders who donate their time/efforts. The ones they sell are nice and even water resistant.

ratpac in Roslyn is a pretty good ride. Hell of a climb though.

There is an access road that will take you up most pretty far up the trail near the DJ section. You can pedal up a easy/moderate climb to the top. Some of the locals helped point this out to recently.

Is there a map online that shows this? I'd probably hit RP more if it were more accessible.

Picked up a used set of magic crossmax sx wheels today. Won't get a chance to ride them until Friday though.

Not that I know of. All the online info I've found discusses using the coal mine trail to the logging roads. I just happened to be hanging out with the locals after a ride once and they told me about it.

In on this. XC guy though. Training to do the Creampuff next year.





Steed is an 03 Sugar 3+ that I've had since new. One of the first true "All Mountain" XC rigs that everyone said would never catch on. Ha. Suckers.

thanks. Ill have to do some more investigating. Where's the DJ area. Maybe I can use that as a starting point.

edit: Was thinking about this more. Rat Pac starts in Roslyn right? When i went a couple years ago, we started in cle elum by the bike shop, took the mine heritage trail, and went up through the rock quarry. Went through a gate and rode up the service road that took us to upper RP. Is that the same thing you were talking about? That also was not an easy climb. :S

Jojo, I'd get a map. Its a confusing place until you get the lay of the land figured out. Not saying you couldn't have fun just exploring, but to maximize your time, the map helps a lot so you can head right to some of the goods people are mentioning for trail names. Plus the map supports the builders. Just my 02 cents.

what map are you referring to? I looked at the rat pac site and followed their map to rat pac. I typically get my routes off of evergreen's website which i'm also a member of.

I've ridden that same route but that's not the "short cut", I'd def agree to buying a map and supporting the local builders. I think the guy who runs the shop is named "Mike", long haired guy and really chill. He is one of the original 3 guys who built ratpac.

The DJ site is just up the hill from the bike shop, if leaving the bike shop, take the first right at the intersection, drive one block through the next intersection. The road sort of forks, stay to the left where it climbs up and winds left. I think you hang the first right from there, maybe the next right as well. To the right will be a small dirt area where you can park. If you look up you will see some small flow lines that are a good spot to warm up.
Up the road to the left is a hip to gap, that's how you can confirm your in the right spot. Beyond that and more left is the small DJ section. The drop in is actually the bottom of RP.

I'll probably be going up saturday the 7th but I don't know if I'm working yet. Supposedly there is a Drop In Alliance day June 27th in the evening although it hasn't been finalized yet.

As a side note, my roof top rack is going to be for sale if anyone is interested. It's a Yakima setup with factory mount Control Towers, one High Roller upright rack, and one Frontloader upright rack. I also have a FatCat 6 ski rack. If anyone is interested, let me know.

Likely interested in the high roller if it's an ultra sick deal.

We can plan a meet. Doesn't have to be the 6th. I figure there will be less traffic the 6th tho.

But cheaper day than any other lift access trails in the area.

I had a lot of fun last year and there was really only one rideable trail. Rock crusher was just a soupy mess. If both are rideable I expect to get my moneys worth. Is it whisler? Nope. Is it an alternative spot for me to ride and have fun? Yep.

I meant are they running 7 days weekly or starting off with weekends?
I want to hit it but it would be a little trek from central WA. It would be cool to ride a weekday when the crowd wouldn't be as thick and the trails would be smoother.
