It’s very gloomy looking out there this morning, but the big blog of moisture on the radar isn’t headed our way. That means, if you’re a mountain biker or dirt biker, you have no excuse for being anywhere but Post Canyon today. It’s fundraiser shuttle day ($40 at the base of Post Canyon Road), and it’s also work party day on the 140 trail. If you work on the 140 trail, you’re going to create the final link that will allow you to ride from the bottom of Post to the top of Borderline, all on singletrack. That’s a fine reason to join the work party.

Today is also the HRVHS gear swap. This evening is 2nd Wind’s Hot Pub Time Machine party at the British Pub. Tomorrow is the Columbia Gorge Marathon. Condit Dam comes out next Wednesday (which really ruins my plans for a week of biking in Bend., but watching the dam go is more important).

In wind world, this front swinging through will give us gusty 13-15 today, with a chance of 20ish (but not more) this afternoon. High pressure builds off the coast tomorrow, for west wind in the 5-10 range early, building to 21-24 from Mosier to Maryhill in the afternoon. Monday brings 15-18 early, fading in the afternoon.

Finally, name the Hood River Sandbar. Voting is open through tomorrow.

Have an awesome day today!
