I'm going to Sunriver for a weekend. Can a guy ride Phil's or other trails right now? It is wet but I'm wondering if anything is ridable. I might bring the road bike and go for a buzz...assuming the road stays snow free.

Jaybo

PS I would be riding mostly on Sunday. Anyone going out?

Although I haven't been up there in the last week, I can't imagine anything in the Phil's vacinity would be clear enough of snow to ride. Could be wrong. FYI - I XC skied Kent's trail from Phil's TH the weekend before last and there was LOTS of snow.

Perhaps Horse Ridge, but haven't been there yet this winter either. Smith Rock might be a better option assuming it's not wet (if wet, it'll be pudding).

Bringing the ski's might be a better option.

Sheesh... a lotta help I am, huh? :)

Yep

It is the only sucky thing about living in the NW: most of the winter is either too wet or snowy to ride. However, spring is around the corner :).

I'm going to cross country ski on Sunday. Not much fun but good for the old cardio system.

Bend rules in the Fall, Spring, and Summer...

Low probability for trail riding. I haven't seen too many folks out on road bikes either (although I think I saw ss4life commuting after dark today -- I saw his big cowboy moustache). It's pretty nasty out there right now and there's a lot of crud on the road shoulders. If you do road ride, bring your health insurance card!

Going skiing @ Bachelor

I had better build a feakin' ark. Thanks for tip but Bachelor is going to see my tail doing some turns. Can't wait. The bikes will stay in the stand this weekend.

I bailed at 270...
I must be crazy but I'm considering trying some Louise FR. Pretty cheap, and the boys have been raving about 'em. You can get 'em at on E Bay now for $246 shipped brand spanking new.

Jaybo

PS that guy wanted to meet me and sell 'em to me for $300. Hmmm. Nah! No warranty and used.
