You have to love a bike ride that loses 1,000 vertical feet and feels like the wind is behind you the whole way. When does that ever happen?
During a trip to Leavenworth, Wash., the SkiZer got a drop-off at Coles Corner, near Lake Wenatchee (thanks Mrs. SkiZer). The SkiZer then rode to the town of Plain, managed one 800-foot climb over Big Beaver Hill, and then cruised downhill into Leavenworth.
Total distance: about 22 miles, falling 1,000 vertical feet from the starting point.
