The Snoqualmie RV Park is an excellent location for any of the rides, and it is right on the river. Lots of families camp there so no worries about kids. If I didn't already live nearby I'd choose there to camp.

Videos to get you pumped!

Less than a month away! If people need to get pumped, here are some videos of some of the places we'll be riding:

Friday
Duthie Hill Mountain Bike Park
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuoOVkYev7o
(after 2:05 in the video is practically all Duthie)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zToO2UnlxVg
(0:15 and 2:12 shows a few clips from Duthie)

I-5 Colonnade
https://vimeo.com/7361460
(shot before the 2nd half of the park was completed. The other half has much gnarlier structures/drops/skinnies)

Saturday
Tiger Mountain
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KGg_WEknUE

Sunday
Hansen Ridge
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zToO2UnlxVg
(starting at 2:25, all the muni clips are Hansen Ridge)

We'll be ordering shirts.

I'll order a single color (to keep it cheap). I prefer orange or blue, but realize most folks might prefer another color, so speak up if you care about the color.

If you aren't on Facebook and want to order a shirt, PM me what size you want, they'll probably be $15.

I'm not shipping shirts, so you'll have to show up.

Camping!!!

Camping will be at Snoqualmie River RV Park & Campground in Fall City. It's a quiet campground along the Snoqualmie River. We have 3 campsites that can accommodate up to 9 tents already reserved. Please RSVP to be guaranteed a spot at one of the reserved campsites!

A few of us locals will also be camping, so don't feel like you need to rent a car just to camp. We can give you rides!
We can also lend camping gear if you ask us in advance!

Money!!!

The event will be technically FREE!

Everything we thought we would need money for has turned out not to be necessary after all. However, be sure to bring money for obvious reasons:
-food
-lodging
-T-shirt (if you ordered one)

I'd like a spot there. Will bring my own tent, but can share one if needed.

I was just about to try and reserve myself, but count me in on the group site, as it would be great to be right near everyone.

I have my own pretty large 10x12 tent (supposedly 6 person) for my family (wife plus 2 young kids). If there's maybe a quieter part of the 3 sites, then count me here as my kids go to bed around 8:30 and wake up early.

What are the chances of catching a ride with someone from the campground to the events (Duthie and Tiger), as I'd like to leave the car for my wife?

@MUCFreerider, I'm pretty darn sure there are still enough spots left. We reserved 3 spots, which can accommodate at least 2 tents each. I will call the campsite when I'm back in the US to confirm how many people are allowed at each site. The campground doesn't have an online map, and I've never been there before, so i don't know the layout.

I have to pass right by there on my way to both, although I'll be in a parade the day of the Tiger Mountain ride so won't be riding Muni that day. I can totally pick you up on the way to Duthie! I used to work in Bad Aibling so we should have plenty to talk about.

Jay, Jason and I rode the shorter Tiger Mountain trail yesterday. My first time up there. It was a blast!

Greetings from Central Oregon! After my time in Post Canyon, 2 days on the Mckenzie River Trail, been doing some great riding on the loose sandy trails around Bend this week.

Headed up to Washington tomorrow and looking forward to riding with everyone (Duthie and Tiger Mountain). We should be arriving at the campground Thursday evening some time between 5pm and 8pm.
