A classic training session for Dave and Jeni is to cycle up to the Chilco trailhead out of Coeur d’Alene. The big push is a relentless 4.2 miles up to the saddle. Some were left gasping.
Next a steep hike up to great views on the summit ridge.
This was Dave’s first real test of his knee since surgery. It survived. 🙂
It’s often windy up here. Today the weather was perfect.
The ride down on gravel I found sketchy. Dave and Jeni are Adventure Racers and found that challenge fairly trivial.
We were 4 hours up and down from Dave’s home. Hot tub and red wine was my reward.
