Today was more of the same! Don't hesitate to call next time bro - 3 machines sitting here but bring your gear. All my stuff is stinking up the mud room.

50 miles of custom, chocolate single track!

Question Anyone riding this evening?

Anyone in the Bend area riding this evening? It's been raining on and off most of the day on the SW end so the dirt should be good just about everywhere.

More rain yesterday, area east of Terrebonne south all the way to Bend and beyond actually has some puddles. May see how the track to the top of Gray Butte faired this afternoon.

Visiting Bend... 4th of July

Hey guys,

I'll be visiting some relatives in Redmond for two weeks, and should be up there on 4th of July. I was wondering if any of you would mind showing me around some fireroads? I have a 690 Enduro R. Looking to get in a few rides...

Thanks!

Far from an expert on local tracks considering I am here for a couple months as I move from Santa Cruz to Seattle, but more than willing to take a look at some tracks around sisters, china hat or anywhere else.

Other than dust, it's pretty nice here, dualsport wise.

Any place in mind? I've been tweaking the suspension on a couple bikes by riding the ditch/power roads from Bend airport to the end of 33rd street in Terrebonne the last week. Straight and a great spot to tune, but pretty dusty for riding with someone. Got lost around Sisters and North of Prineville recently, and would recommend the Green Mountain Trail if you get out to the Prineville area, only 8.5 miles long but it's a nice trail that ISN"T just a gravel road.

Its going to get hot again around here, so my thinking is to head west into them hills... I want to check out these trails that go by Talyor and Irish lake's (think its mrdualsport thats mentioned them a few times) and goes into the backside of Waldo lake (warning: i have been known to go for a swim in my whitey tightey's on hot days on the bike -- its not a pretty sight, so you have been warned), loop back thru Cresent junction and back over newberry crater... I don't know, off the top of my head, thats loop I have been wanted to do.

I can go friday??? any takers??
