Industry veteran Bryan Cole grabbed his Unit X, and four of his closest friends recently and headed into Washington State’s Gifford Pinchot National Forest. It was supposed to be an “easy” four-day ride, but reading the feature story over on Freehub it seems it was anything but. Inclement weather encountered on the loop included high winds, snow, and horizontal rain, and then there were the hike-a-bikes, some sections so steep they required two grown men to pull the loaded bikes up.
