Playing At Iron Mountain

Friday I met Brian and Steve from some TGIF chunkage out at Iron Mountain.

After spending the last month riding (between work stuff) in Washington state it was nice to get back onto some turf/chunk.   Of course it is always good to catch up with friends.  The light was good and the temperatures were great in comparison to the mega-hot temps from just a couple of days earlier.

Trickier than it looks.

Newberry Hills

Here are a few pictures from one of the last rides I did while up in the Seattle area. 

This place was pretty close to Bremerton and was a mesh of tight and twisty XC trails.   

The trails were for the most part fairly atechnical  but I have to admit that muscling around my slack and long wheel-based bike around the twisty bits was a bit challenging ing spots.

The trail elves have been at work out here.

While I had a good time riding out here, I would have really loved to have had my snappy hardtail to flick around this trail network.   Right tool for the job or not anytime you can get out in the woods is a good time in my book.
