Ride Postponed due to current SEVERE chest cold!!!! I will repost this ride for either July 10-12 or Sept 17-19.
When: 0730 meet, Depart 0800
Where to: Mt St. Helens via secondary highways (not the slab)
Why: Weather should be perfect, it should be a great ride.
Meeting point: Tim Hortons on Sumas way (Abbotsford) by Costco
Pace: Depends on who comes, I'm flexible.
My plan is to travel secondary roads as selected using the Washington Destination Highways book. Depending on who can make it I am open to either camping at night or hoteling. If no one can make it I am going solo, but I am going, I need a bit of a break.
First day, ride to base of mountain. Second day, up both east and west sides and start to head back north to Canada. Third day, return home by noon or shortly after. I did this trip in two days a while back and it was far to quick and tiring. This two and a half day trip should be very comfortable for anyone.
Documentation and Insurance should be in place when in the States.
