While Portland, OR is the most bike-friendly city in the US, it still takes you almost an hour to get out of the city to hit a decent MTB-trail. However, the rides out there offer loads of fun, the Sandy Ridge Trail System in particularly. Our favorite ride was the combination of Rock Drop, Three Thirty Eight, Two Turntables & a Microwave and Hide & Seek and back up to Lil’ Monkey. In fact, we loved it so much that we did the same ride 3 days in a row…
Sandy Ridge is easy pedaling up for about 45 minutes until you have the choice various trails back down again. A loop like the above described adds up to about 16 km/10 miles and a climb/descent of roughly 600 meters/2000 ft. Particularly on weekends there is quite a crowd out there, so it’s a great place to meet other bikers.
