I ride in southern Oregon around Ashland and Applegate lake. The trails are awesome-great technical singletrack and true cross country trails-they ride great in either direction. The trails get a little dusty in summer and a little slippery in winter, but in spring and fall, they rock
hood river mostly, post canyon, ... surveyor's if theres time to plan. Also, oddly enough... forest park has recently been revealed in a whole new light to me... had no idea the level of technicality tucked away in there (and only a few minutes away). .... So many choices.
I'm in the Salem area and West of me lies Falls City at the edge of the Coast Range. Bikers have constructed an intricate series of challenging bike trails and ramps. At 65 I'm too old to use it but the kid in me thinks it looks great.
Get a good map before even looking for the biking area. The whole area is crisscrossed with logging roads.
