It's gravel for a ways and dirt & rocky for a ways, but anyone should be able to do it on any bike.

Suicide Grade itself? I'm not sure how bad it's deteriorated since I've seen it last.
But it's just an up and back, so some may not do that part, pending their bike, and their skills.
I am not assuming that I can make it up, I may not be able to on my big 990.

Yer killin me.....................I'll know soon if I can make it or not.

Hi Gary,

I'm well up for riding over Lolo. You are leaving real early for me though, I am at least 1.5 hours away from you.

I'll PM you my number, give me a call, It would be good to meet up with you and ride over to AJ's.

Cheers Mark

Breakfast 8-10am
Head for the hills about 10-ish ?????


Yesterday was nice here, but asrvivor and I ran Bennett Pass,
and the Southern end near Mt Hood Meadows was heavy mist/fog and greasy dirt road.

10 minutes down the mountain to the North.......and we hit Sunshine

OK, it's 9:30, I guess Hood River has run out of interwebs for the week.

Katy would never stand for this... hey, wait a minute.
