PDX Off-Pavement Ride

Portland Area Off Pavement Rides

SEE THE END OF THIS THREAD - I've long stopped updating this post.

This thread has become a bulletin board for planning off-pavement rides around the Portland area. See the end of of this thread for discussion of the next or most recent ride. Bikes have mostly been a mix of 350s to 650s; knobbies pretty much required during the wet time of the year. Some rides are easy gravel and logging roads; other rides venture to OHV single track. We accommodate all bike and rider types. Go ahead, instigate a ride!




Meet-Ups:
  • NW Industrial Starbucks - 3275 Northwest 29th Avenue. Corner NW Yeon Ave (AKA Hwy 30) & NW 29th Ave. Left side of Yeon, as heading N. Take a left at the light at 29th. This is the light after McD's on your right.
  • Washougal Chevron - at 2nd / C St, AKA Jimbo's Deli Mart. You'll see it off Hwy 14 (North side) as you get into Washougal.
  • Linnton Arco - Arco station in Linnton; on Hwy 30 just north of the St Johns Bridge
  • Scappoose Fred Meyer - Gas station in parking lot of.
  • Beacon Rock
  • Manning DQ - on Hwy 26
Past Ride Areas:
  • Scappoose West - West of Scappoose, as accessed from Dixie Mountain Rd, Smokie Ranch Rd, Rabinsky Rd, etc.
  • St Helens West - Areas west of St Helens, east of Hwy 47, and north/south off-shoots of Pittsburg Rd.
  • Washougal East - Areas NE of Washougal -- from Dougal Falls; Sunset Falls and east into Gifford - Jones Creek - North of Beacon Rock - NW of Stevenson.
  • Tillamook - Diamond Mill, Roger's/Brown's
  • Hood River - White Salmon, Nestor Peak, into Gifford; Post Canyon single track.
  • Mt Hood - Barlow
  • Gifford Pinchot

A few of us are meeting at 10 am on Sat 11/14 in NW Portland, heading out toward Scappoose and into the hills from there -- for some off-pavement riding. It'll probably be too sloppy for anything too technical, so mx skills not necessary, not that I have any anyway.

Turn those grip heaters on and join us. PM me for meet-up location.

I'm all packed up, so I guess I am in. Part of me wants to wuss out.

I do need to be back home by 2:30... But I don't think I have enough layers to ride much longer than that anyway.

It's going to be cold on the hands. Lets find something tight and technical (read slow) to stay warm.

Cross posting

Hey, nice thread. If you have any BIG rides, like weekend camping, or poker runs or rallies etc., I would love to promote or cross post those in our club out of the Seattle area. Especially this next summer I would love and our members would love to join you guys in some cool places you go in the great state of Oregon. If that's possible, you can contact me here or on our club site.

Thanks!

Hi Steve. Yeah ... this thread's rides have all been day trips. Bigger, longer trips seem to get their own thread. Perhaps you should get your thread's title changed to something like "XYZ Area Off-Pavement Rides".

Ride Sat 9/25

WHAT: Local ride this Saturday.
MEET: 9:30 am, NW Industrial Starbucks (NW Yeon Ave AKA Hwy 30 & NW 29th Ave)
RIDE: Scappoose ... west

I guess it's been since before summer that we've had one of our Scappoose West off-pavement rides. Let's go see what gates are open! Meet by 9:30 at the Starbucks; we'll stop for gas in Linnton. Post up if you plan to come.

In, probably.

(I just have to check over the XR350 and see how it faired after last week's punishing 100+ mile street ride to nowhere...)

Does anyone remember what make I said this car is? I have been googling for a while, and I can't find anything. I thought I read it was made in Scotland on the tag in the back, but I may have confused that. I thought the name was something like Daphnie, but I can't turn up anything.

I still think it looks like an Opel, but I remember being surprised when seeing the tag that it *wasn't* an Opel.





and here are pics from the riding part;





That was an EXCELLENT day of riding. It was so frikkin' beautiful out there!
