 Took a four day trip up to OR last month and got to see the level of trail building going on up there, and let me tell you, it's unreal! Everyone involved deserves utmost respect. They got their shit together for sure.

 I think this is inspirational, a group working together to achieve a common goal which leads to riding your bike. Must be an awesome sense of achievement amongst the group. We have a similar thing happening in South Australia at a remote place called Melrose, the local riders got their shit together and made a whole heap of trails happen, now its a popular road trip destination for many SA bikers and the local economy has benefited massively too!

 Was up there a few days ago, keep up the good work! The new trails are on point, I want to make it out to the next one of these.

 Agreed. I just rode Follow The Leader today and I've been on Flow Motion a couple times now. These trails are loads of fun. Brake erosion on Flow Motion already. I've never been more challenged by a trail as I have on FTL. That trail is definitely new school.

 Just moved to Portland a couple of weeks ago and I've been to Sandy Ridge twice. The hard work trail work done here by volunteers here is amazing. A great place to ride and great people to ride with.

 The data on Sandy Ridge Trail System:

Much props to PDW's dedication to giving back to the community and helping make this trail build day a HUGE success, as well as the BLM and IMBA (and Mr. Wells mini-excavator skills) for making SRTS a great place to ride.

NWTA (nw-trail.org) hosts trail days during the winter months, join us for throwing some dirt!
