MTB Goals, Oregon, USA - Hannah Myers

July 26, 2018

Summer holidays, where are you going? A road trip through the Alps? A week of downhilling in Morzine? A guided trip in Spain? I'm wistfully looking back to my favourite MTB summer jaunts, and there's one that sticks out in particular.

 

My favourite ever place to ride is in Oregon, USA. There are epic trails in a number of places but the one that holds my heart is a tiny town called Oakridge. In 2015 and 2016 I've spent a summer holiday exploring the trails closer to Portland before venturing south, through the Willamette National Forest to this sleepy town for Mountain Bike Oregon festival.

 

 

The forests surrounding Oakridge are a haven for mountain biking, seemingly endless miles of buff, smooth, sweet singletrack that winds its way through ancient redwood trees. Punchy (and sometimes excruciating in 35 degree heat!) climbs lead to blissful, drawn out descents and ending with a glacier-fed river next to the camp ground to cool off. 

 

 

I've been twice now, as I said, and this summer, being deep into house renovations I'm itching to pack up my bike, get on a flight and head for the forest! If you want to try somewhere new, try Oregon. It's full of hipsters, so the beer is excellent, the coffee is strong, and the trails are sublime.
