With hundreds of miles of less-traveled back roads, thousands of acres of forest, and all those gorgeous scenic byways, Oregon is the place to ride for two-wheel enthusiasts.

There are designated mountain bike trails all over Oregon, including the high-desert surrounding Bend, dense forests of Mt. Hood and the varied terrain of Eastern Oregon.

Oregon’s temperate climate allows for biking year-round, even in the winter months. If you’re itching to brave the cold weather, here are a few winter-friendly rides: Hood River to Mosier Trail, Once Around the Lake or the Peavy Arboretum Loop.

Once the snow melts, most of Oregon’s mountain resorts transform into a playground for bikers, offering marked trails, as well as lift rides to the top. Just be sure to enjoy the alpine air and incredible views before bombing down.

The Willamette Valley town of Oakridge is a year-round destination for mountain bikers of all skill levels thanks to its hundreds of miles of single track. Twice a year (July 15-17, 2011; August 19-21, 2011) dirt lovers descend on this friendly community for Mountain Bike Oregon, a three-day celebration of trail riding, complete with meals, shuttles, demo bikes, contests and a nightly adult beverage garden.
