    Free High pass Challange entry

    The ride is this comming Sunday and I have a cold so no ride for me.

    The first person to post HTFU will be cursed for thier next 100 rides

    Technicly you are suposed to pay a 20.00 transfer fee. You can either do that or you can ride as me.
    There is no check in at the ride and I will mail you the Bib # so the 20.00 transfer thing is at your decretion the entry fee for this ride is 80.00 so they are not going to die without your 20.00
    If you ride as me though you can not suck too bad

    The weather looks like it is going to be perfect so if you are trained up for a 100 plus mile ride and ~ 7000' of climbing and have Sunday free ... shoot me a message with where to mail the ride packet.

    Starts in Packwood, Washington, just south of Mt. Rainier National Park. Climbs up lightly traveled roads to a place called Windy Ridge, overlooking Mt. St. Helens. The portion near Windy Ridge is in the "blast zone" from the eruption of Mt. St. Helens - lots of downed trees.

    I did this ride last year - it's a great ride, though it's a chore to get to Packwood.

    Packwood isn't really close to anything (2.5 to 3 hours from either Portland or Seattle).

    If someone had time to do a weekend of it, you could do a ride in Mt. Rainier National Park on Saturday and then do the High Pass Challenge on Sunday.

    It sounds like a beautiful ride. I've yet to make it out there to ride, but someday soon I will, I hope.

    Sounds tempting, but I'm doing this'n this weekend:
    http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united-states/or/bend/164125123420488263
    According to MapMyRide, it's only 87 miles and 5000' of vert, but I've got a 25 mi, 1000' round trip to the start/finish, and MMR tends to under-state elevation significantly.

    My LBS is putting this on as a "Century", and only charging $5 entry. How could I pass that up??

    It's starting to look like this entry is going to go to waste.

    Hi Fixitman,

    Not sure if my first post reached you as it's in another forum, so I'll try this "Quick Reply" thing here. I would love to have your HPC reg. Mail would not be reliable to make it on time, so e-mail me at benardb@hotmail.com or call me on 206-715-4775. If you live reasonably close to Burien, I'll come get it.

    Thanks!
    Bruce

    Bruce,
    While I grew up in Burien I live in Portland Oregon now.
    I am not sure if I dropped it in the mail if it would make it in time. UPS does not guarantee it, but from here It usually only takes a day. I am going to check on the UPS site to see what sending it next day would run.
    Shoot me your address in an email and we will see if we can make it happen.

    Best regards,
    Randy Morgan
