    welcome berrt!

    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!
    why drive when you can ride?

    Hi!

    I love to bring my bike down to Oregon and ride. You live in a very friendly bike town.

    Happy Spinning

    thanks everyone for your welcome. after lurking for a couple months i have found these forums to be full of info and just all around nice people. it was nice to find a place like this.

    rotifer: there is not only a lot of people from portland but the northwest in general.

    nathank: out of those four you mentioned i have only heard of brown's camp. never been there but would like to go some time soon. i was going to try to join a pump ride this month but they have some sort of IMBA insurance problems and have cancelled there group rides so maybe i will hook up with one in sept.

    webist: thank you for your welcome. i am sure you will get a lot of answers to my questions. but that will have to wait till winter when i start dreaming of a new road bike. a little something to get me thru the cold season

    annie: i have never been to yakima but i am sure it is a beautiful place to live and ride. but is there really a bad spot in this corner of the country.
