Jack Berry Participates in 60 @ Sixty Ride
Jack Berry, Director of Imaging Services at Pacific Imaging Center, was part of a large support crew that helped Castle Rock’s Jim LeMonds attain his dream of riding 60 miles of trail to celebrate his 60th birthday. The event took place on July 23rd.
The ride included 15.5 miles on the Ape Canyon trail on the east side of Mount St. Helens, 8.8 on the Blue Lake trail on the west side, 22.2 on the Lewis River trail, and 17.1 on the Falls Creek trail near Old Man Pass. Final totals included 63.6 miles with 7,000 feet of climbing.
The ride crew was on the first trail at 4:55 a.m. and completed the last trail at 6:37 p.m. Berry rode the Blue Lake and Lewis River legs and assisted with driving and general support duties.
LeMonds raised more than $10,000 dollars for three charities: Friends of the Castle Rock Library, Girls on the Run of Southwest Washington, and CurePC.org.
“It was a great day,” Berry said. “It was a pleasure to be involved.”

“The movie contains some spectacular footage and gives a good picture of how challenging the ride was,” Berry said.
