I know that's a bit short notice, and that's not about mountaineering....

Anyway... I am planning, like most students at UW apparently, to go to Sasquatch on Saturday... However I mainly go there for REM and I'm not very much into the concerts in the following days.
I am bringing my mountain bike up there and something mad inside me suggests that it might be fun to ride it back to Seattle.. . ;)

There is a trail called Iron Horse trail (or John Wayne Pioneer trail) which runs on former railroads - so it shouldn't be too strenuous, just long... First there is a trail from the Columbia river to beyond Ellensburg (which should be called Iron Horse or Army something...) and then there's a second part which runs in the woods parallel to I-90 and with a tunnel to bypass Snoqualmie pass (and that's the part called John Wayne Pioneer Trail). It always runs reasonably close to the motorway or some main road, so if anything goes wrong or if the thing gets too long, we wouldn't be lost middle of nowhere and there would be a way out.
Apparently no super fancy mountain bike is needed, just anything able to go on a non-paved but reasonably even track.

Those are a couple of links I found, but there are plenty more, check them out:
http://www.spokaneoutdoors.com/army.htm
http://www.spokaneoutdoors.com/jw.htm
http://www.mountainmojo.com/johnwaynetrail.htm

The whole length is 150 miles, but we might find a lift to shorten it a bit... My plan is to be back in Seattle Monday eve or Tuesday morning, so I borrowed a lightweight tent from the club. All you need is a sleeping bag...
Once in Issaquah or North Bend there are actually buses with bike rack.
What do you think? C'mon I know there are people out there crazy enough to take the challenge...

I am going there with some friends who have a van and another bike can fit in there... So, if you want to listen to the kindle of madness inside you telling you join (I know it's there), just answer here or PM.

Otherwise wish me good luck.. ;)
Paolo

you might want to verify, on your way over the pass, that the trail isnt covered in snow. Otherwise, sounds like fun.

I will, thanks for the advice, Jason!
They say the tunnel by the pass is open since May 1st, so hopefully it won't be too bad... At worst there should be a road just off I-90... Not as exciting, though.. ;)

Good Luck...
Let us know how it all went. That is quite the undertaking.
