All Comers ... All Good
DOD's annual event draws the biggest crowd ever!
Smiles, old friends, new faces, crisp air, nervous energy and a sublime chaos surrounded the staging area for the tenth annual Disciples of Dirt All Comers Meet just before riders sped off into the mist to find the trails of Whypass and see how much fun they could unlock.
With 300 riders, dense fog giving way to sunshine and melting frost ACM X was far and away the biggest and rowdiest All Comers Meet of all time. It's astounding, awesome and humbling to think that what began as a small band of mountain bikers has grown into, truly, the premiere free mountain bike event in the pacific northwest. What started with a couple dozen folks huddled around a tailgate and a six pack after a few miles has turned into a destination event with folks from several different states, all manner of abilities/riding styles, vendors, demo fleets, hot food and a six tap beer wagon!
