Official Ride nickname

So I was just talking about this with squidly. I think we need to put our heads together and come up with an official nickname for the High Bridge Road and Howard Road circuit.
My preferred is high Howard but I'm willing to entertain other ideas.

A bit off the subject, but there's a nice road after finishing Ben Howard. Continue on into Sultan, and then turn right (east) onto Hwy 2 through Sultan. Just as you are leaving Sultan, turn left (north) onto Sultan Basin Road, (stay to the left at the Y). Take Sultan Basin Road clear out to the end of the pavement, and then turn around and head back. On your way back, there's a Y in the road, which is Kellogg Lake Road, (pay attention or you'll miss the turn). Turn left at the Y onto Kellogg Lake Road and take that back to where it ends on Hwy 2 in Startup. Both Sultan Basin Road and Kellogg Lake Road are well worth riding.

The "How(ard) High" ride. Maybe get Method Man and Redman to "roll".

Thanks marv. I'll definitely be checking that out. I've always felt like the ride wasn't quite long enough. But add that on and it's a perfect probably three hour ride. And I like "how high" smokey

They are fun roads but way too many damn driveways. IMO not very safe to rip up and down. About 15 years ago a group of us found a road out in Stanwood IIRC out in the farm area. Flat and nice curves but not all the traffic or blind driveways in corners. I have been wanting to head back up there and see if I can find it again.
I have come up on plenty of bicycles, cars and freaking gravel on High Bridge and Ben Howard even the occasional Deer.

Yeah you shouldn't really rip anywhere close to here, but you can still have a good time if you're not going all out.

If you find that road let us know!

Take it to the ridge yatta yatta yatta...Well I can't afford anymore trackdays after chroming my frame and getting my chicken strips anodized blue.

for now it looks like we'll just have to ride our streetbikes on the street (How scandalous!)
