    hey all,

    In Spokane for a few weeks and have this Sunday/Monday and following weekend to amuse myself. Thinking of renting a bike and hitting a local trail. I have zero equipment with me, alas...shoes, pedals, helmet, nothin'.

    Any recommendations on trails and rental places? Have access to a rental car in which I could transport a bike, thankfully. Looking to ride technical single track, but nothing crazy...figuring I will be renting a hard tail, but hell, will consider FS if warranted.

    Thing is Eastern WA is coming out of a late winter. I don't know how much trail is snow free up in Spokane. Beacon Hill has the best trails but theyre probably snowy. While the bluffs on South Hill may be a better bet, I wouldn't call them technical. Over in Coeur D'Alene there's some trails too but they may be in bad shape yet. If your willing to drive 3 hrs each way, there's some technical snow free trail in Yakima.

    Hm, I think it may all end up too complicated for me, then. Don't really have clothes for too much cold outdoors stuff either...

    Lemme talk to some peeps and see if there's any trails in the neighborhood that will be clear.

    So my friend confirmed the snowy nature of things.


    If you feel like driving, I have spare bike and gear.

    Thanks dude-we hiked on snowshoe trails on Mt Spokane today and had a blast. I will just go with the wintery flow and do some skiing during any off-time. Have never done Nordic and will probably give that a try!
