    Ride the Hurricane

    Great ride this past weekend. Wasn't heavily promoted in the Seattle area. Was told they sold 310 out of an available 500 spots the Park Service allowed.

    Nice to ride to Hurrican Ridge without cars, at least after the higher start location.

    Weather was perfect. Will return for sure.

    Made a weekend out of, hit Sol Duc for a soak afterwards and Lake Crescent Lodge for dinner.

    Only about five weeks away, anyone doing the hurricane ridge ride this year, I rode it yesterday with not much traffic but I am sure that will change with the warmer weather coming on. The road is in perfect shape all the way to the top and this year they say there will be no pilot cars for the trip down the mountain.

    I haven't done this ride yet, but I've been wanting to. Do you have any pics to entice us with?
    Don't believe everything you think.

    There has been enough sun that the road and shoulder are clear all the way to the top along with the parking lot, the only snow left is mostly on north facing slopes, when you get about a mile from the top you will start to see some snow in the ditches and patchy snow on north facing slopes. It is still cold enough at the top to be a cool ride back down. Don't forget to bring a tail light and head light as there are three short tunnels to go through.
    The first several miles are chip seal but from the park entrance all the way to the top is blacktop that is only a couple of years old.

    Sorry no pictures this time as it was a last minute decision with just enough time to hop on the bike and make it up and back down.

    Well it sounds like it was a great decision! Thanks for the update on the road conditions.
