Did anyone else here ride the High Cascades 100 on July 19? I've never ridden more than the Rosarita-Ensenada, or about 35 miles of dirt so it was quite a different experience. There were 5 aid stations along the way, and 10,000 feet of climbing overall. 4,000 was between aid stations 3 and 4, an 18 mile stretch. Plenty of snow to get across near the top. The winners finished in less than 8 hours, I took 14. My goal was to finish. They gave finishers a growler from Deschutes brewery, which I filled and enjoyed at home. :cheers: Going back next year! http://highcascades100.com/

Definitely not easy, but over 70 miles of fun, winding single track in the forest! :D
