Looks like we’ll see west wind today and tomorrow in the 13-15 range as a couple of fronts swing through. We might even see some 21-23 out east tomorrow afternoon. We’ll also see .1” or so of rain overnight tonight into tomorrow morning, with a few sprinkles tomorrow morning. West wind will pick up a bit more Sunday afternoon in the 17-21 range.

This weekend is jam-packed with events. Just announced yesterday is yet another work party in Post Canyon. Bring yourself and your snacks to Binn’s Hill Staging Area at 9am on Saturday. We’ll be working on the section of the 140 trail that received a clearcut this year. This is the section of 140 that parallels the 130 and 133/Borderline. Linking this trail will make riding from the bottom of Post to the top a lot more fun. Trust me on this one: whether you’re a mountain biker or dirt biker, you want to be at this work party.

Cheap Gear. Free Membership

Sadly, the work party conflicts with both the HRVHS gear swap and the Post Canyon Shuttle Day. Sign up for the shuttle day ahead of time if you want food. All proceeds benefit the trailbuilders’ fund (no, your tax dollars are not the reason we have MTB trails in Post Canyon). Sunday is the Columbia Gorge Marathon, but you already knew that if you’re doing it, right?

Of course, I don’t want to forget the Name the Hood River Sandbar contest. As of last night, there was nothing on the HRN website saying when the contest is over, but according to a friend’s FB page, you have until October 23rd to vote. That’s Sunday.

And most importantly, Condit Dam comes out next Wednesday. Can you believe it?

Have an awesome day today!
