Sunrise on Mt. Rainier

ReadyToRide Hammers On

We road the SIR Sunrise Climb permanent #243, and it was the greatest route ever! We rode up for 100k and 7,250 feet elevation, turned around at the NPS Sunrise Visitor Center and then rode down for 100k. Zowie, It was great. I've ridden with SIR for 5 years and this is my first trip to Sunrise. They must be holding back the good stuff... Oregon doesn't have a ride like this and you know what that means? Thats right, It's Hammer Time!

Update 02-OCT-2008: It was a beautiful ride, thanks to Mark Thomas for the invitation and to the dozen or so riders, for sharing the rode. Awesome ride!
