Out On The Road And Along The Trail

Ferndale Road closure

Sam Ledbetter and I embarked on a Log Cabin Ride Saturday morning, a route that takes you over the testy little hill on Ferncrest off of Burlingame Road and on to Ferndale Rod via Col. Glenn. Usually, we take Ferndale to Denny, but the bridge north of Kanis on Ferndale is being replaced and the road is closed. This may have been covered by every mail list in town as it affects several popular routes, but it was news to us!

We believed the signs, but still had to check it out…

Yep, they were serious. The road is closed! Kanis to Denny was an easy alternative route back into town.

On my way home, I passed by the Xterra Tri in full swing, so I pulled in. This team, Elaine and Craig Zediker and Nick Lewis, representing Competitive Cyclist, won the team event and came in first overall, with Elaine doing the swim leg, Craig riding the mtb on his single-speed, and Nick blasting through the run. The cooperative spirit will be severely tested later this summer when Craig and Elaine ride the Leadville 100 on a tandem mountain bike.

There’s more action at Burns Park on Sunday with the Three Legged Dawg mountain bike race.
