Fourth Annual Vibrator - August 12

Vashon Island, WA - (Start time 4:00 pm)
Hop the Fauntleroy ferry to Vashon this weekend and find yourself ripping through some of the raddest single track around. There'll also be a time trial from the ferry terminal to the start area of the single track race. Ah, choices, choices...which bike to bring? You'll figure it out! It'll be a huge biking/partying/camping weekend, so prepare for plenty of beer and barbecue and to spend the night under the stars. More details coming all the time, register at
