At a Glance

Maxists and Maxist-Leaninists. Many people turn a blind eye to these extreme followers of maxburnism. But when discrimination against street bikes becomes blatant and institutionalized, itís time to speak out for American values. Itís one thing if these misguided souls wish to head off and practice their gravel beliefs on some abandoned logging road or little used trail in the middle of nowhere. But when a beautifully Paved, Engineered and Twisty ďloopĒ road suddenly turns to aggregate just as it starts to get really good, itís time for right-thinking people to take a stand. Just as Remoteness and Twistiness start in earnest, just as the thick forest and jagged peaks make you feel like you really are in the Scenic Mt Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, thereís a sign brazenly proclaiming: ďPavement EndsĒ. Washington State ranks eighth nationally in the amount of taxes its citizens pay. There are federal funds to cover roadwork in national forests. So it ainít the money. No, itís something more insidious. Decent riders have a right to know: Is the governor a member or has the governor ever been a member of the Maxburnist Party? 


 Riders Reviews:
"As of mid-June/04 the gravel road is still CLOSED about 10 miles past Red Bridge. Don't know how long the closure is; approached the gravel from the DH end and planned to hook up with the TE to Darrington. Sigh... In years past this was the prettiest ride I'd ever taken in the NW." 

"Maxburners beware: The freak storm that dropped 7 inches of rain in just one day last fall (the same one that closed DH1 early) caused massive flooding and washed out a HUGE section of the gravel highway at the end of the DH. Last I heard, the US Forest Service had no plans to repair the road this year." --Craig
