Any west-facing slope in the Pacific Northwest will be pretty nice. Avoid the rain shadow (see the Eastern Sierra for and extreme example of a rain shadow) California is a desert and is quickly reverting to that state. I'll be moving in a few years into the Cascadian fern-drip and will lay down my bones among the roots and rocks.Anyone have non-dusty places to ride now? Do you have to ride alone to avoid dust now?
lolyou gotta trust your bro's. 2 feet off their rear tire is risky, but no dust! You gotta both be on the same page, as far as " no sudden stops", or you will run over their fancy carbon rims. as a house painter, i know we usually get a first rain around halloween, then a few small systems between halloween and thanksgiving, then "its on" in the bay area. Up in the high country you get some rain storms earlier though. 2 1/2 more months of dust!
