Road and Mountain Biking

It’s muddy out there on the trails. Riding them will damage them. Syncline is a maybe. Please don’t. Remember, if you damage the trails, volunteers have to spend timing fixing them rather than building new trails. There are lots of other options: gravel grinding, road biking, trainer biking. Don’t knock ’em ’til you try ’em!

Upcoming Events

The Kickstand Coffee run is at 7am – free coffee and donut for walking or jogging 4.1 miles. There’s a by-donation yoga class at 4:15pm at Samadhi in White Salmon. Many of you have been asking me about Laura’s Green’s memorial service. It is at Springhouse Cellars at 10am on Saturday.
