I know this is way in advance, but I believe in planning
This trip has been several years in the works - I tricked my employer into paying for most of it
I attended the same conference 3 years ago and had a rental car. The whole time I was driving around I was thinking this would be awesome on 2 wheels. Hence my planning this time...
Not looking for anything hardcore, just some nice paved twisty bits and gravel roads/trails that lead to spectacular views. I do a fair amount of exploring in WA, just don't do anything too technical. Beautiful place to ride for sure.
I am more than willing to buy lunch for my tour guide, maybe you can even show me some cool hole in the wall type places to eat
Any inmates willing to show me around your fabulous island? I know somebody will be out riding when I am there, I am more than happy to follow along in the back...
