Sweet ride yesterday

Rode up to Timberline Lodge from Govt Camp, Or. Short and sweet, but a nice little climb - about six miles and 2000' of climbing. Great views - makes me want to go ride the southern Alps even more. If you're ever in Oregon in the summer, give it a shot.

32h velocity blunts on the factory dt Swiss hubs. they've worked well as a cross country rim - not sure as a trail rim though

Nice scenery!! I wish we had something similar where I lived! You get tired of looking at dirt as you ride

Beautiful mountain views you've got there! Beats the heck out of my suburban hike and bike trail! I want to go to Oregon, now! What was the temperature like?

Summers are very nice here - mainly mid 70's to mid 80's
