HI-5 BIKES presents Thrillium and Cold Creek Work Party!

Our good friends at HI-5 BIKES are generously supporting our next work party. On March 15th and 16th we will be working on both Cold Creek and Thrillium. The plan is to finish the bottom of Thrillium along with working on some drainage and berms on Cold Creek. Lunch, beer and some swag will be provided. We’ll meet at the bridge at 8:00 AM with lunch at 1:00 PM both days. Please let us know if you plan to attend so we can have a head count.

Party In the Woods!

Some of our friends from Transition Bikes came down to the Cold Creek Experience, and it was a Party in the Woods. This lucky guy, from the Seattle area, won this prototype Klunker that Transition generously donated. Thank you Transition, for your part in creating the weekends experience!Stack of photos representing Transition bikes at the Cold Creek Expierence.

April 20 Cold Creek Shuttle Day Recap

jWasA_Shuttle

At the Cold Creek Shuttle Day everyone had smiles. Riders showed up in force to enjoy the trails together. Out of town race teams were checking out the trails for upcoming events. Some young local DH racers were ripping/breaking smaller bikes. A hard tail was seen on Thrillium? Lots of first timers ripping the trails along with locals rediscovering old trails.

With 4 shuttle rigs, wait times were at a minimum.  Lines were seldom seen, If there was a wait for a shuttle it was usually in groups of folks chatting. The overall atmosphere was fun, laid back and relaxed.

Being the first of 5 events, planned for 2013, we are in for a great season at Cold Creek. Thank you to everyone that showed up. Both volunteers and riders made this event a success. June 1st, the next shuttle event, can not come quick enough.
