Tiger Mountain-Raging River Double Play: Best trail conditions until a 10 carat IF diamond comes along. Why didn't I think of this before? A twofer was the perfect way to cap a week of riding Olallie, Tiger 2x, and Raging River 2x. Riding the three hardest climbs in King County five times has got to be good for something! The dirt was perfect at RR and for most of Tiger. With big rain coming in, we won't see that again until an extended stretch of bone dry weather. That's about as likely to occur in the late fall/winter as a 10 carat IF diamond. The week old Powerlink trail at Tiger is already taking a beating from heavy use. A tiny bit of rain has resulted in muddy ruts on the steep sections. There is a thick cloud cover on Rainier's summit, but not the typical cloud cap that forms in advance of rain. It looks more like a volcanic eruption! Eventually, a trail will link T and RR, but until then, a seven minute drive between TH's is all it takes for the twofer.

Olallie Ridge Advance Planning. Given the extended forecast and time of year, I planned some major riding for the last few weeks. I wanted to ride the higher trails a lot before snow shuts them down and I start riding my winter bikes in the rain. Raging River on Monday, Tiger on Tuesday, and Olallie today fit the bill. I changed my advance plan of riding GR-D-SE today when there was thick fog in Issaquah this morning. North Bend also had thick fog, but the pass was sunny, so I headed to Olallie in NB. As I drove up to the TH, the temp rose and I broke into brilliant blue skies 100' in elevation below the TH! I stuck to my plan of going easy on the climb, not wanting to dig a deeper fatigue hole in advance of another hard MTB climb on Friday. Today's pace, along with stopping to take photos, was a nice contrast to all of the hard riding I have been doing.

MTB 2:27:00 [4] 22.3 mi (9.1 mph) +3340ft

Tiger Mountain Linkage. Love the steep new Powerlink climbing trail! Trying to save energy for PL, I throttled back on ML/QL. I went hard on PL, but I definitely felt yesterday's hard Raging River climb in my legs.

Monday Oct 5 #

MTB 1:55:00 [4] 18.2 mi (9.5 mph) +3171ft
ahr:136 max:159 weight:147.8lbs shoes: SW MTB 2014 Bling

Raging River: For my money, the best feeling in cycling (and one of the best in life in general). I love the feeling of my body getting stronger week by week, little by little. Small incremental gains feel huge, especially this year when I was off of the bike for two months at the start of the main cycling season. My goal for today was to get within 10% of my PR's set in 2019 on the second hardest climb in King County. Much to my surprise, I got within 5% of those numbers. Perfect dirt conditions!

Sunday Oct 4 #

Walking 52:00 [1] 2.8 mi (3.2 mph) +550ft
weight:148lbs shoes: Hoka Clifton 11

Squak Mountain road walk with Tracy. Cool views of low hanging clouds on Tiger Mountain.
