Touratech Guys Do the GripTwister's Olympic LoopSep 16, 2009
The 3-day route leads riders in a counter-clockwise direction around the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. Circumnavigating the majestic Olympic mountains, participants are treated to great forest roads weaving up and down high elevation passes in remote areas.
The route leads you into the Hoh Rain Forest where old growth trees tower into the sky under the protection of the National Forest. Lake Quinault and the Qweets river are beautiful water features along the way that are famous destinations for travelers to the peninsula.
There are many beautiful views of Puget Sound in the first few sections of the Olympic Loop. The route is ideal for lighter dual sport bikes on up to full sized adventure bikes.
To spice things up a bit Dave offered up the "W" route to the guys wanting a technically demanding section. The guys on the light bikes had fun getting through a series of washout sections and improvised trails on "W".
