On Wednesday I led a ride thru Mt. Rainier National Park.


Forumites RogerM (Roger) and Faustocopious (Bob) were in our gang along with a couple of other good friends. We met just outside the park at the intersection of Hwy 410 and the Crystal Mountain Parkway. From our starting point, our climb begins straight away heading into the park. Traffic is light on a mid-day morning and we warm up quickly. Views of the mountain open up just after we pass the white river entrance.

We are soon at the top of Cayuse Pass. The snow has melted considerably since my last visit here.

We put our jackets on and enjoy the long descent down the backside of Cayuse.


We turn onto Stevens Canyon Road and refill our water bottles by the ranger station. I take a moment to get a picture of Bobs incredible Kevin Sayles bicycle. It glows in the sunlight.

Stevens Canyon is one of my favorite roads in Washington State. It is especially beautiful in Spring. The sounds of water falling everywhere, the quiet, and up high, the snow still clings to the roadside.

Roger grins like a Cheshire Cat as we wait for the everyone to regroup midway up the climb

My good friend Ty is the last one we are waiting for. He is an incredibly strong rider but is hobbled with bad knees. This ride is his last before he has total knee replacement surgery (both knees) NEXT WEEK.
Ty will be going in for total knee replacement. On Tuesday. Both Knees by NBend, on Flickr
What a stud!


We rest, take a few pictures then finish the climb up the Canyon

The climb ends at reflection lakes which aren't doing much reflecting yet..

Ty and Bob turn back at Reflection Lakes, the rest up us push on to Paradise where we have lunch and Joshua buys some souvenir socks :-)

It’s 3:30 now and the clouds are rolling in. It’s time to head back retracing our steps. Good bye Paradise it’s been fun!
Clouds roll in by NBend, on Flickr


We zip down Stevens Canyon, go up and over Backbone Ridge. (click on the picture below and it will go to my video)

stevens canyon by NBend, on Flickr

Roger is hollering on the descent off of backbone that “This is the funnest descent I’ve ever done!”. I would have to agree. The asphalt is new and the sweeping switchback turns can be taken at speed.



Now we have the long climb up Cayuse - time to pay for all that fun. So much fun that I had to stop at one point and throw up my lunch - yuck! In survival mode for that last 3 miles, I reach the top of the pass and descend just as a light rain starts to fall. Chilled, I have to stop on the descent and try to warm up. Ty and Bruce are back on Cayuse, Josh is ahead of us all going to get the car to pick them up. Roger is ahead of me and Bob is certainly ahead of Roger so I finish the ride alone. Sick and cold but also very much happy for our experience today. I reach our end point and there’s Bob and Roger. They were only waiting for a half hour or so.


Talking with everyone later on, we all made it home safe n sound. Everyone was tired, most complaining of cramps during the night but all agreed it was a special day. Well worth the effort.

Wednesday and Thursday, @Prowler and I took vacation days and took a couple of rides in the Central Hudson Valley. We documented the ride (with pictures) in this thread.

Re: Ty & knee replacement.
My next door neighbor had both his knees replaced, but not at the same time, it is very painful for months afterwards.
Beautiful photos, thank you.

Not very exotic, but a pleasant jaunt.

Just got back from a 12.95 mile bike ride to one of the newer LBS's in town.

Distance: 12.95 mi
Time: 46:34
Avg speed: 16.7 mph

Conte's Bike Shop in the west end of Richmond, VA in the area known as Short Pump. Great place with great people!

On the way back home, my wife took a quick photo of me riding up the hill on our street. Here I am on my "old school" C&V 1985 Fuji Del Rey...

Tried to get home before it poured today. Near the end of the ride, I had to take shelter from the storm in the entryway of a local country church. A couple riders passed toughing it out. I was happy to wait (keeping both me and the drivetrain from getting swamped).

I found some new single track today, I had passed by the entrance a few times and always wondered. It looks maintained, but scarcely used. The sections I passed through today were great. Looks like there's quite a bit more to be found - the main trail broke off in quite a few places.

I rode to breakfast. I did my usual group ride. I didn't want the single rider in the "Cruiser" group to ride alone, so I rode with her and got 12 miles in. Then I did some bonus miles and ended up with 55, on my 1994 Nishiki.

I took a 101 mile ride from the Bronx north into Putnam County on Wednesday then back via a different route and met a buddy at Kensico Dam Park on the way home. It was a very nice day to ride, very warm and sunny but as long as one remained hydrated, perfect. I only took one quick picture of the Super Course TT while at Kensico Dam.
