The Sandy Ridge Trail system has continued to get better and evolve since its inception. Each year trails are maintained, improved and hardened to hold up to the use it receives as the most popular trail destination in the Pacific Northwest. This year the parking lot was revamped and expanded to nearly double its previous […]
Oregon has a wide range of single track trail options ranging from classic backwoods Forest Service style XC trails to modern flow trails in stacked loop systems.
The Tiddlywinks trail has been on our to-do list for sometime with to numerous recommendations pouring in. Easy access from the highway and shuttle friendly, it’s considered one of the must-ride trails in Bend. It features a bit of everything a contemporary trail mountain biker lives for: flowy bermed turns, opportunities for air time and […]
It’s currently Post Canyon season. Go and ride there. HRats has been fixing up trails that were wrecked by the fire fighting last year, and things are running awesome. Busted stunts are getting repaired, there are lots of sweet new features, a new step up and a crap ton of sweet lines to take. Seriously, […]
Of all the times I’ve ridden Oakridge, Moon Point has eluded me, remaining on my to-do list. Unlike our usual routes, it’s a bit of a drive from town, and requires a bit more of a time commitment. This fall I finally crossed it off the list thanks to our friends at Tam Bikes, who […]
The Mountain Biking in Southern Oregon has been getting better every year. The Rogue Valley already contains multiple trail networks, and Klamath Falls is making big moves towards becoming a trail destination of its own with the ongoing Spence Mountain Project. According to MTB Project, there are already two trail networks listed in the Klamath […]
What happens with you mix 30+ mountain bikers from all over the west coast and shake them around in a giant bus? Apparently good times, lots of stories and stacks of memories. Our friend Quoc Phan of Tam Bicycles in Mill Valley had put out the call months ago, and having participated in the gathering two […]
When our pals at Showers Pass asked us to tag along with them on a road trip to the Sea Otter Classic this year celebrate their new partnership with IMBA, we were nodding our heads in agreement before they even finished their sentences. The plan: head toward Monterey; riding bikes and camping along the way […]
As residents of Portland, Oregon, we’re fortunate to have world class riding situated only an hour away. Sometimes though, you don’t want to deal with two hours of traffic in the car just to get some exercise. Whether it’s after work, or just a day where you’re looking to explore, we’ve been peering through Google maps […]
Flow motion is one of my favorite trails to ride in the Sandy Ridge Trail System. Although it falls under the flow trail category, it’s not completely buffed out like many of the high speed highway style flow trails that are becoming so prevalent. There are plenty of roots and random dips, peppered with the […]
If your idea of a fun ride includes beautiful scenery, miles of twisty single track, paired with physically challenging climbs and equally engaging descents, add the Browns Camp loop in the Tillamook State forest to your to-do list. Located about an hour west of Portland, Oregon, the 8.5 mile loop is a Portland staple for those seeking out classic […]
Although there are miles of logging roads and a few quad trails here and there, single track is hard to find at the northwest tip of Oregon. It’s a shame too, as Astoria has evolved to become quite the tourist destination. The number of breweries and opportunities for good food has multiplied exponentially, and even a […]
Sandy Ridge is the go-to riding spot for Portland riders; over 70 riders turned out to prep their favorite trail for the wet season.
