PDX Off-Pavement Ride

Portland Area Off Pavement Rides

SEE THE END OF THIS THREAD - I've long stopped updating this post.

This thread has become a bulletin board for planning off-pavement rides around the Portland area. See the end of of this thread for discussion of the next or most recent ride. Bikes have mostly been a mix of 350s to 650s; knobbies pretty much required during the wet time of the year. Some rides are easy gravel and logging roads; other rides venture to OHV single track. We accommodate all bike and rider types. Go ahead, instigate a ride!
