    Hello there,
    I am new to Ellensburg, I moved from Seattle. Currently, I am going to CWU for my Masters in Computer Science and its my first quarter here.

    So it appears like the ellensburg section of pnwriders is dead! Where are most of the rides at? (except the westside) I would love to go on a ride, get to know people and explore the area.
    For now, I am riding an R1 but that will change very soon. I go through many bikes a year. Anyways, most importantly, anyone up for a ride sometime in the near future?

    Welcome to the Burg. You are correct on the Ellelnsburg section being dead, there are a few of us floating around here and there though. Most of the rides are in the Yakima area but since it is this late in the year most riders have or are putting their bikes away.
    If I can get my shoulder feeling better I would be up for a ride.

    I ride all year but i think Ellensburg winter may take a toll on me. I see alot of riders in ellensburg everyday and the ratio of riders to members here is not right. Atleast in Seattle, there are more active people on the forum than you really see riding. With that in mind, i thought there would be more people here. Anyways, i hope your recovery goes well so we can plan something out!
