I'm envious...takes me 4.5 hours to get China Hat. Might have mentioned it before, but I have a track that'll take you from Bend to Summer Lake and from there you can head south into CA and NV or east and do the loop I did earlier this summer - or choose your own adventure as there's a ton of possible tracks to follow. I'm going to post the GPX file with cleaned up tracks in the report I'm currently working in the day trip forum: 4 Days From China Hat. The ride we did the 2nd day was the best; close to 160 miles of fun. Haven't made it to the 3rd day of riding yet, but my planning screwed up and we hit private property and then had a bike issue, so the ride went as these things do...a little sideways @Mark64 & @chudzikb - glad to see this report is still popping up and providing some entertainment!
