Getting High and Staying Light with Smoothjazzlines

Who brings two bikes on a work trip? This guy does! After a long and last minute work week in Seattle, I linked up with Chip from @smoothjazzlines who promised to take me deep into the Green Zone. 


Smooth Jazz Lines master facilitator @workingoutinjeans guiding us deep into the #greenzone. 


The trail scene just outside of Seattle is legit. 

Never not jibbing. 

"What is a SJLMTBCSystems Facilitator? The simple answer… you are! SJL is not a hierarchical program. As such, the growth and development of our technology is dependent on the devoted MindEye of each and every Facilitator! Join us! The longer answer… a Facilitator fosters community, shares knowledge, willing opens the GreenZone to new Facilitators, lives by RadicalEquality, and knows when to get sideways! Without you, our technologies stagnate. So, share the program! If you encounter a potential Facilitator on the trail, say hi and offer an adjustment! You never know! We’re all just trying to find the GreenZone, right?"

Google Raging River / Exit 27 for the goods. I have no clue how we got there or what we rode. I do know that the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance is putting in a lot work here and it's going to be a destination trail system for sure! I am already planning my next trip back up! 


There was a lot of jumps to scare myself on. Stoked to get a couple of the big lines dialed. I can't wait to come back and get them from top to bottom. 

Tokul Mountain Bike Trails

When I got word I'd be working in Seattle for a couple weeks, so many things rushed through my mind. What bike do I bring? Who is going to water my plants? Where will I be staying? Is it going to rain? And most importantly, will I be able to mountain bike? Well......

The cycling community is strong and the Washington Mountain Biking community is even stronger. My buddy Chip aka @workingoutinjeans made some smooth jazz lines and a plan was set. Matt from the Polka Dot Jersey hooked me up with a demo and everything else fell into place.

We rode trails in both Tokul East and West. We got rowdy. Washington showed up, the parking lots were full. The Everygreen Mountain Bike Alliance is doing great work.

I can't thank everyone enough. So stoked.
