Hamburger Ride 2017

September 20th Jan and Bill Ford hosted their annual Hamburger Ride for 12 riders and served 21 guests for a great hamburger BBQ with pot luck salads, baked beans, and some amazing dessert treats! After a summer of heat and smoke, the weather was uniquely accommodating and everyone was comfortably cool and the air was clear and sunny. What a great day!

A day of RideandWorkandRideandWorkandRideandWork...

It was one of those days when you ride a bit and work a bit, then ride a bit and work a bit, over and over. Thursday September 7th was just like that when Mary Pat Bauman on JJ and Cathy Upper on FeeBee, starting at War Creek, decided to take along a few tools on their ride up Twisp River Trail—just in case. Cathy dispatched this downed tree quickly (see photo at right), but eventually they came upon another downed tree that even fearless Cathy couldn’t take on. It was decided that one should be left for Bill Ford!  

Just Ride!

 On September 13th Tamara Abate, Cathy Upper, Mary Pat Bauman, and Jill Calvert rode out 7 miles on East Bank Trail (just west of Rainy Pass). It was a beautiful and smokeless day so they enjoyed a rest and snack/lunch on the dock at Ross Lake. No trail work this time!
