Xanadu MTB, October 2011
At risk of posting a mostly irrelevant blog update, considering the change of season since the Xanadu ride, I present to you a few snaps from a late October day on the singletrack out near Peshastin, WA. On Ericís suggestion, we made our way east for what would be a shakeout ride for me and my new (but used) Remedy 8. Although rain showers caught up with us as we began the descent on our second lap, the vibrant autumn colors and classic eastside ridge-run made for a fine day of mountain biking. Like some of the other mtb-specific trails in the area, this one is steep, fast and well maintained with banked turns, numerous jumps and a couple mandatory drops thatíll likely leave a stain or two in the shorts.
