WABDR is short for the “Washington Backcountry Discovery Route”, which is a series of forest roads that run along the eastern side of the Cascades between the Columbia River and the border with Canada. The plan was to start from the south and get as far as we could across a long Labor Day weekend. In order to start at the beginning, we first have to get there.
We were climbing a rocky section just north of 410 when my front wheel slide to the right and the bike decided to take a short cut up the cliff.
Mike captured this recovery on video, which I’ll share at the end of the trip report. The first photo above doesn’t quite share the exposure of the hill to the left of the trail, it’s a significant drop.
