Ever try to get in to see your chiropractor, only to be told you’re waiting a few days? Every been hurt on a Saturday? Hood River Chiropractic, located downtown above Flow Yoga, can help you out. Docs Michelle and Alex (who rips Post Canyon all the time) can get you in, even on a Saturday. These two understand you don’t want to slow down because you’re hurt. They’ll work with you to formulate a recovery plan that allows you to keep doing the things you love (like ride Post). They take insurance, they offer cash discounts, and they’ll make sure you get the treatment you need. Finally, if you need some supplements (no, not EPO or HGH), they’ll do customized nutritional analysis to make sure you’re only getting the supps you really need. To book an appointment, give them a call: 541-406-0849. Two of the lucky people on the email version of this forecast will win free chiropractic appointments this week.

Labor Day weekend is here, and it’s the unofficial end of summer, and that means it’s time for east winds. We’ll see 24-28 today at Rooster, with a little less at Stevenson and Home Valley. The wind should hold pretty much all day in the western Gorge, and pick up to 10-13 out of the east in the eastern Gorge in the afternoon. I really thought we’d wake to a glassy morning in Hood River, but there are just enough ripples on the water to dimple the glass.

Tomorrow’s going to be a good day to spend in the water, as temperatures are predicted to reach 95 degrees. Head to Stevenson or Rooster rock for 20-23 in the morning. Get it early tomorrow, because the wind is going to start fading pretty early, probably leaving us with glassy conditions in the afternoon.

The Clymb: free membership.
Access to super cheap gear including Trew, Zeal, Sierra Designs, and many more.

If you’re sticking around on Monday, start calling your friends with boats now, because Labor Day is going to be a great day for wakeboarding or fishing. One of the models is showing a bit of a marine push early on Monday, so we may see 5-10, just enough breeze for heat relief, in the western half of the Gorge.

The hot weather looks to continue all the way through next week. If you’re not yet a whitewater kayaker, now might be the time to learn.

Tomorrow might be your last chance to pick up some used gear for cheap. It’s the final CGWA swap meet of the season, at the expo center in Hood River, starting around 8am.

Finally, I want to remind all of you that it is bike commute challenge month. Even if you can’t ride to work, see if you can burn a little less gas this month by riding your bike for some errands, and get the rest of your family out on bikes too. Bikes are fun.

Have an awesome day today!
