Summary:
See above. Great training ride with plenty of climbing if you go my way and take BFI and Mach 1 at the end of the ride. Rattlesnake is bitchin', not too techincal but just technical enough to make it interesting while still going very fast.

Recommended Route:
Go up BFI, it's a tough climb and most riders in their fancy gear are too soft to try it. Take the main route to fenceline, then merge onto redtail/rattlesnake. A great singletrack, with a moderately technical rocky section, easier now than it used to be when there was no line. For some added fun, after yopu fly down the fireroad after rattlesnake, climb back UP to the opposite ridge and smoke downhill to the parking lot. When you can do the whole loop in 1:15, call me and we'll ride.

Summary:
Nice Intermediate-Advanced singletrack with a few boulders to negotiate through. Looks to have been cleaned up since last ride through. Not as tricky as it was but you still have a tendency to go FAST through it, so be careful.

Recommended Route:
For a good ride before Rattlesnake, take BFI all the way up. If you don't want all the climbing, go up I Think I Can to the top.
