Palisades Ride – A Washington Treat

tough, rugged and dangerous (no not a description of me)

we had a great day on the mountain bikes today. i got out with my good buddy copson for the palisades ride out by crystal mountain ski resort24 miles with 5,100ft of climbing (map). i wasn’t sure how my neuroma would feel in bike shoes for 4-5hrs. it hurt last time i tried it. but i just couldn’t sit still anymore. the day was a success, with very minimal aggravation to my foot.

this ride is part of the cascade triple crown (65 miles, with over 11,000ft of gain). since i’m moving away and i can’t run right now i feel like i have to get this done before i leave seattle. we’ll see.
