Ok, Ok, Oakridge is in the Cascades, and some of these trails are just as close or closer to Bend, but grant TDM the grace to organize the world as he sees fit. Anyway, it is very likely you have heard about Oakridge and the trails that surround it. TDM’s simple message is this: you will have fun here. this is a great place to ride bikes, regardless of your ability or favorite style. The fact that the Lion Mountain bakery is really good, the bike shop is friendly and helpful, the shuttle service has your back, and there is a room (or camping) near a beer at the end of the day is just icing on the cake.
