and you're in a great place for MTBing... i lived in Portland from '97 to '00
lots of great trails, good cycling commutiy, and great support for commuting...
i used to ride every week with the Thursday night Fat Tire Farm ride in Forrest Park -- mosty XC Sport racers
my favorite trails:
* Dog River near Mt Hood -- great single track CLIMB and downhill
* Brown's Camp near Tillamook -- great loop plus a "lower" section and a "new" section (built in '99 by PUMP)
* 3-corner Rock in Washington
* Suisan Creek in Washington
also check out Portland United Mountain Pedalers (PUMP). they have lots of cool rides!
