Gold Creek Wrap Up

Come on, one more run!!!!
The aftermath.
Poor trail conditions
Don't look down
Somebody get a leach

First ODS Gold Creek assult of the year, but certainly not the last. A few downed trees didn't stop us. Weather was perfect!! Here's some pictures taken by Tyler. There were 12 of us (including 5 of our Port Townsend neighbors). What next, maybe Sadie Creek???

Gold Creek Ride Update

The current plan is to meet where the pavement ends on Palo Alto Rd. There are signs for Dungeness Forks and Tubal Cain Trail yada yada ... Meeting time is 10:30ish on Sunday May the 25th. Call 477-9288 if you are going to be late!! I have made a map with a couple of routes for the ride, which include a number of "bail-outs". It could be a pretty rigorous but oh so rewarding ride. Some large trees are down on the Lower Dungeness Trail (aka logrides!!!), and we may hoof it through some snow.

Be there or be a roadie

ODS+ Gold Creek = XC Mayhem!!!!

Well not really, but we are going to hit the upper Dungy for the first time this year. Not sure on the route, but it will surely involve the Gold Creek Trail. All paces welcome, bring a lunch and a lot of water. Might even have a little bonus trail if the road is still blocked??????
Check out this old video I dug up. It's got some Gold Creek and some more familiar trails as well.

Contact Scott by Saturday and we should have the route/meeting place figured out.

Fluidride Cup DH/DS #2

It was another big downhill family reunion up at Dry Hill for the 2nd Fluid Ride Cup of the season. The sun came out in all its glory when we were there to enjoy watching the ever entertaining section of "justice" on the trail. The rain came at night as we slept just to make the trails a little more perfect for our downhill race in the morning. We had 265 riders sign up this time so we had quite the the display of riders as well as spectators with loads of smiles as well as the cow calls of the homemade noise makers thanks to Mitch Mcdougal which he made from scraps of old bike parts. Thanks to all that volunteered to make this event happen, the overwhelming dedication from the folks from Olympic Dirt Society - Josh, Mitch, Summer, Tyler, Dave, Scott, Casey, Lars, Sean, Shawn, Marty....I could go on, your help has been greatly appreciated. Now Lets get ready for FRC #3 in Mount Hood OR.
Results will be posted soon

What a great weekend, but we have all kinds of little tweaks for the next one. Anyone who wants to participate as a volunteer, let us know.

Thanks to everyone who worked to make this such a success.
