Mountain Biking

Seattle

I have been in Seattle for awhile now trying to train for my AMGA Alpine Guides exam, mostly on my mountain bike… The weather has been less than ideal, partners keep bailing (mostly for legit reasons), and I have rekindled my love for mountain biking. My last bike was purchased in 1997 and was a Trek Y-33, at the time, one of the best bikes made.

 

I went to the Trek dealer and started looking around… Disc Breaks, 5″ of travel front and rear, 29er what??? Man, a lot has changed! I ended up getting a new Trek Fuel 9.8 ex and sales rep Jim told me to head to Tiger Mountain; so I did. It was the perfect ride, possibly the most fun I have ever had on a bike. I have now logged 200 miles in the last week. Here is some footage mostly from Duthie Park, WA:
