Trails: (Or Not)

It now seems to us that tunnel closures on the John Wayne Trail near Snoqualmie Pass make it a no go for through traffic. We also have now read a number of reports from cyclists trying other parts of the trail. They all mention coarse loose gravel, snow late in the season, avalanche danger, bears, slow going, need for no load and fat tires, etc.

So now we think there is good reason why bike trails do not figure in CGOAB blogs. We will still try the Snoqualmie, the Centennial, and the Coeur d'Alene, but it looks like dreams of crossing Washington by trail will not come true.

Huddling by our wood stove we have only two days before only pedaling fast will keep us warm!
