Here is aaron's new Fall inspired creation. His new Gunnar Crosshair cyclocross/dirt road bike dressed up with Shimano's Ultegra grouppo and built up just in time for the upcoming cross season. So you suppose you're going to be in shape in time for that first race over in Butte ??

Coeur d'Alene Bike Trail

Spent the past weekend in good company as our small group of 8 decided to ride an out and back along the peaceful Coeur d'Alene bike trail. Putting in at Mullan Idaho and pulling along our camp gear for an overnight trip using BOB trailers was the plan, so we pedaled along taking an entire day to pedal the 60 miles. Taking the opportunity of stopping at every small town and every good view along the route. It wasn't very hard to find the views, plus there was also lots of wildlife abound (sand hill cranes, deer, snakes, turtles, birds).... but nothing near as wild as what we encountered at the sleepy town of Harrison, which also happened to be our lake shore overnight destination. Mix together some cheap beer, some good pizza, and a sock hop and you have yourself the making for a damn good party in Harrison at a bar called 'One Shot Charlie'. I'm still not exactly quite sure what a sock hop is.......but i'm guessing it involves beer, good music and an active dance floor. Good times followed and we stayed out late making the early a.m. wake up and 60 mile return trip a little more difficult.

Here's a decent photo sequence of the entire route: Mullan To Harrison

Swan Crest

This past weekend we had the opportunity to ride some amazing trails near the Flathead.....high alpine riding at it's best with fantastic views into the Great Bear Wilderness, Bob Marshall, Glacier Park, and the Flathead valley. 2 days worth of riding......the first day was a tough 28 mile segment of the crest that had purt near 7000 ft of climbing and almost 10,000 of decending. Day 2 was on the same trail but the northern tier, this portion was also a handful and much different in the way scenery.....overgrown brush, lots of grizz scat, and the huckleberries were soooooo abundant. 25 miles in all and a fantastic 6 mile downhill finish back to the valley floor that left us all pretty darn gitty. I owe Warrick big time for dragging us up for the ride and also for being such a great host for 2 days. Thanks dude !
