20th Annual Bike Festival Winthrop, WA

Joe and I went to the annual bike festival over in Winthrop this past weekend. We arrived on Friday afternoon October 6th and returned on Monday October 9th. We had an awesome time! We signed up for the Buck Mountain mountain bike ride, thirty one miles of cross country riding with a lot of up hill climbing and downhill fun! At around 15 miles into the ride we arrived at Buck Lake where a wonderful lunch awaited all riders. Refreshed we finished the last 15 miles and headed for our cabin and the hot tub out on the deck overlooking the Chewuck River. We had a full moon on the 7th and the sky was a clear crystal chilly star filled night. On Sunday Joe and I just relaxed and enjoyed the races on top of Sun Mountain, sight seeing through the town, and eating homemade pumpkin ice cream. It was hard coming home.
