The valleys up around Oroville are scenic as can be.

Now that a backcountry route is established, the concept of single track (or atleast jeep track) that parallels the route in certain sections could be a real possibility.

How sweet would that be to ride single track and pop out into to town for fueling, then pick up the trail a little furtner on down.

possible a few day ride if we wish to do the whole thing. atm i am only interested from canada to ellensburg, possibly a little past ellensburg into the naches. and planning on going back to where we started so that way we can get our rigs. a lot of work getting people to shutting the rigs south to piick us up. but if everyone wants to do the whole thing you know i wont say no.

I could probably get a few days off...but I got no gear to do that. I'm down for doing the whole thing in a day. big

Maybe make me a special sticker "I did the WBCDR in a day IronMan ride" sorta shit. punk

ONE DAY! The OBCDR took us four days of all day riding.

Yes, We did stop a few times to check some of the local area. 600 miles for Washington thats a long way to do in one or two days. Doah

There is a high probability that I won't be able to attend a longer ride do to funds, (can't afford all the gear needed). Just a thought... if someone could figure out the logistics, I wouldn't mind taking a day and driving someone else's rig to pick everyone up at the end.

maybe do it in sections, takeing a day here and there to do it. i think i have done most of the tracks just north and just south of wenatchee. so the next route i would like to do is from Chelan to Conconully.( i think that is the next one in line ).

Doing it in sections is something I would do. I also so the Big appeal to do it all in one trip thou.

*could you imagine doing all but 60miles and say, "I'll come back another time and do it"? That would suck.

I think this would be a fun trip to do all in one shot. Start at the border and work our way down, or vice versa. Camping gear can be found cheap on craigslist, so no one should have an excuse not to do it. We should try to plan this for like an early July thing so its nice weather, but not too hot. Thoughts?
