Portland area Mtn bikers?

Getting back into Mtn biking and curious if there are others here? I typically do a couple rides at Forest Park in the evening during the week and maybe a weekend ride every so often (When not on my Adv bike)
So, anyone interested in joining me? I'm an intermediate rider but so much of Mtn biking is dependent on physical fitness and thats the part I'm working on....Hit me up if interested......

Hey Mtbdemon,
I'm a mountain biker too and will be great to organize a ride sometime.
I won't be able to ride until maybe late May or June due to work/travel but if you're still looking to meet up with riders let me know.

Yup, I like mtn bike riding but don't have any friends to go with. I've been meaning to go over to the trails by Larch Mtn Correctional Facility but haven't yet.

ALWAYS looking for a riding partner so when you return, look me up and lets ride!

Hey

I ride quite a bit and always looking for others to ride.
Sandy ridge, Syncline, Black rock, Post canyon and Stub Stewart are all favorites.

Ill be on location till the end of the month but usually get out once or twice a week when I'm in town.

Sounds great!! I just bought a Santa Cruz 29'r tallboy carbon. I thought I would retire my old Gary Fisher Sugar and I have really liked the Santa Cruz, but have found I really need to work on my fitness.
I have to watch riding in the gorge these days as I have found myself to now be allergic to poison oak...go figure, after 51 years I'm now allergic....

The tallboy is an amazing bike! Too bad I cannot go riding soon. All the places mentioned by fellow inmates are awesome. I'd like to add 8-mile, dog river, Knebal Springs, and Falls Creek.

I've been to Stub Stewart once but didn't get to explore much. Maybe NWScout can lead a ride there once he's back?

I probably won't be able to ride for a week or so, but would really like to join you when I can. I've just been riding paved paths and Black Rock, so anything in between would be great.

Sounds good

Ive got a great 12 mile loop that uses a few miles of the paved trail, hill climb to the top then single track back.

Ill chime in when I'm back...

I bought a really nice mtn bike a few years ago.
But the throttle broke, and I haven't ridden it since

Maybe it just needs a fresh battery (I need to get in shape bad)
...and then the carbs cleaned (gotta cough my lungs out)

It needs the front forks rebuilt too, they sink to the bottom of their long travel as soon as I get on.
I used to love mtn biking 15 years ago.....
