If we want close in, I'm thinking Jones Creek (last weekend open) or Scappoose.

If you want to ride a little more slab, Maybe Hood River or Beacon Rock areas.

Sounds better than my ideas

I can't ride Saturday but if anybody wants to meet for a Sunday ride I'm pretty much free all day. We usually meet at the Carlton meat packing plant and head up.


10600 NW Westside Rd
Carlton, OR 97111

My normal route takes me on about half gravel and half pavement but we can mix in a bunch of trails if people are up to it.

That was a fun ride, Squirrels and mtbdemon!

E showed us what new 606's can do:




I show that even 606's couldn't get me up this steep, rutted hill. Edit: Actually that looks like E. We got him pushed up the second half, but then had no strength left when it came my turn -- i.e, I couldn't make it up either.


Yeah, you'd think Scappoose would get old, but we kept finding new places to explore.



I guess a little mud doesn't bother the GPS tracker:

Kind of looks like I'm tipping over here, but I did manage to not slide out:

Just back from Jones Creek with Squirrels, did loop C. Got to be the muddiest 23 miles I have ever ridden. Single track all the way, what a blast. Glad we went as it closes next week. Squirrels will post some pics later.

I am real glad I didn't go then. My sore shoulders, neck, and back wouldn't have been up for that!

Can't wait to see pics!

Anyone up for a half-day ride tomorrow, Sunday? I can leave NW Portland at 12 noon. There is another area west of Scappoose that I poked my head into before meeting up with E & K. I'd like to go explore it further. E, you up for a third day in a row? 'Almost There', given my time constraints I can't make it down to your neck of the woods. If you want to head this way let me know. A meet up at the top of Cornelius Pass works too.

Geez, this was a fun time. I'm looking into getting some 606's so I can ride the mud a bit better. I can't wait for the next outing. Thanks for the riding!!

Perhaps a ride the weekend of the 19th? Should be warmer and I need a reason to install my new Dunlops
