Hi,

I'm an endurance mountain biker from Utah and am in Portland through July 13. Hoping to hook up with others for some long rides in the area. If you have a ride happening I can join, give me a call 435 210-0809 or send me an email [email protected]. Would also be interested in suggestions for long rides in the area if I end up going it alone.

Thanks,

Craig

How long is long?
I'd say Mr. Stuttle here is looking in the 40-50 mile range and perhaps even something sick and wicked that requires pedaling for 8 or 10 hours.

The real question is how much climbing and singletrack?
A lot of the Big Epic stuff is limited by snow, but an assault up Dog River to Surveyor's and then up and over Knebal Springs to Bottle Prairie, up #450 to Fifteen Mile Creek down and down and then back up and up to get down to Bottle Prairie again with a possible looper on Eight Mile before the climb up and over Knebal to the finale down Dog would be a monster Hood Epic that should be free of snow. I'd hit that. Not sure when I'll have the time, maybe Monday.

Long is relative Snake, even for the endurance crowd. Got a hell of a long ways up Middle Fork two days ago, but it takes a 2.5 hour drive (if you're here till the 13th it might be worth it). Nothing all that crazy, probably about 40 miles as an out and back with a 2000 foot climb. The trail can be made into a 50 to 65 mile ride.

Thanks for the replies, and yes looooong is relative but Snake's right on and the Hood epic sounds perfect. I'm going to head out there Sunday and give it a go. If anyone wants to spin along let me know.
