July starts off with a bang as Colt and Jessee celebrate their country's independence in the Issaquah, WA area shredding the local biking hotspot
at Duthie Hill. Creeping closer to the Canadian border, the twosome visit the sprightly town of Bellingham, WA and put some rewarding trail time in at
Galbraith, part of the Chuckanut Mountain Range. The ending weeks of July find the duo having a blast riding in the outdoor recreation capitol of
Canada, Squamish, B.C. August greets Colt and Jessee with sunshine and warmth as they make their way east to Kamloops and Harper Mountain.

pair kicks up some dust and even a little snow in Bend, OR then head out to Lyons, OR to check out the lush freeride area in Shellburg Falls and end
this round of Oregon riding with the much awaited Black Rock Trails in Falls City, OR. Amongst waning days of June, the twosome start their Washington
riding on the often muddy, rooted slopes of Port Angeles.
