Sierra Club story on Mt. Hood

Ok, so it's actually about mountain biking, it's entertaining as all get out. He's a fantastic writer and the tale parallels the joys and agonies of hiking so closely, you'll lose yourself in it. I'm betting many of you out there may actually recognize the locations he's talking about.

Because It Hurts

Mount Hood's biking trails offer verdant glens, boisterous wildflowers, gawk-worthy views, and grueling days that cause exhausted legs to cry out in agony.

And we want to do this again?
