Alpine Trail Mountain Bike
Ready to roll.
Two friends and I got out about a month ago to get our fill of beautiful, top-notch singletrack in the up-and-coming mountain bike mecca of Oakridge. We got started in the afternoon, and prepared to be delighted with 14 miles of downhill awesomeness.
Right out of the gate, Kohl got a break via a mechanical breakdown, so I snapped a few shots while I waited.
Ride Oregon Ride
Kohl kickin' butt
A few Douglas Firs towering above the forest.
Wild lillies blooming in the sunlight
Scott tearin' it up.
More fields of wildflowers
Elk Camp Shelter. This shelter can be a great place to camp, but sadly was full of trash and debris.
A field of thick Bear Grass.
More fields of Bear Grass.
One of my favorites from the day, this is the most fun type of singletrack to ride on. Thick, Douglas Fir trees surrounded by lots of moss and sedges.
