Maybe pass you on the road. I'll be heading to Spokane to do some shopping tomorrow thru the Nelway border crossing.

What a lovely new thread you have Buttercup.
I think I can go Sunday. Sullivan Lake, Metaline Falls and Boundary Dam make a nice ride on a hot day. The last time I did it a Grizzly Bear ran across the road in front of me.

Will go with general concensus... I'm free either day as my horseback riding fell through...

1 - Sunday Lamotovita

what works for you Jer?

Kootenay kid you are a Saturday?

9:00 A.M. at the CONOCO on HWY 2 and Deer Park Milan.

We can take backroads to Newport and then the LeClerc Road (Eastside) of river to Metaline Falls?... Lamotovita -- you've likely ridden more this area than I -- you have a better more interesting route? Just remember the 250 barely makes 60mph!

I'm open to suggestions....

That would be great.
Technical up and down single track to forest roads.
Lots of tent space for anyone else that wants to come up.

Hard to go wrong with Latah Bistro or the Steamplant. Have had some great meals at both. There are lots of other places in Spokane but haven't explored all of them yet. :-)

Vintage riders sounds more like a wine tour ride. :-)

If it warms up as fast as some are predicting, too fast. More flooding we don't need. Have to get a canoe to get to work.
