Tonight I’m off to Oakridge, Oregon (“The center of Oregon recreation”) to take part in Mountain Bike Oregon.

The event promises three full days of riding on what I’ve heard are some of the best trails anywhere in the country. I’ll join about 150 other folks at a rustic camp along the Willamette River and ride till our heart’s content (then talk about it every night over cold beer).

My love affair with mountain biking began in 1995, but has been on hiatus since I moved to Portland three years ago. I can’t wait to get down there and rekindle the relationship. I hope the sparks still fly like they used to in the old days.

Stay tuned for reports and photos from the trail.
