Today started out to be another Saturday that none of us knew what we wanted to do on. Tim mentioned a few trails that none of us had been on before, so all we had to do was pick one....Falls Creek it was! Located in the Wind River drainage, the trail starts basically at the headwaters of the Wind River. Tim Thornton, Meggie, Andy Maser and myself all agree that this is one of the top rides we have ever done! Don't let the shuttle fool ya though, plenty of gradient to climb on this ride, but it is so worth it. This ride has a lot of something everyone can enjoy, and it takes about 3 to 3.5 hours with sight seeing along the 17 mile rim. Epic views, collapsed lava tubes, and fast ass downhills!!!

We had been hearing tales of a great trail system located just southwest of Salem for a couple of months now. After watching hours of YouTube footage of this grand establishment of beauty, five of us decided to make the two and a half hour drive south......and it was well worth it!

We decided to hit up a shuttle ride in the foot hills to the east of Mt Hood on Sunday and it was oh so tacky and good! It is a pretty full on ride of continuous single track and one that tests how fast you can go and stay in control! This ride had a little bit of everything...some little step jumps, some techy features, and some balls to the walls gripped fast track. Highly recommended!
