Oakridge Oregon: A Mountain Biking Mecca
Mountain biking enthusiasts everywhere are spreading their love for this sport, by transforming the Oakridge/Westfir area into a mountain biking mecca. Check out comments from Randy Dreiling, owner of Oregon Adventures, on this growing phenomenon.
“Oakridge/Westfir, Oregon is clearly becoming more popular for mountain bikers- you can tell by the amount of cars with bikes on them around town. So this has me thinking, what will Oakridge look like in 2, 5, 10, 20 years? I personally think the changes will be great. I believe Oakridge/Westfir will become a mountain biking hot spot, and attract a number of skilled and adventurous bikers (most of our trails are for intermediate and above skill levels). Our location also allows Oregonians to escape the city and enjoy nature. I also think that more people will buy houses here because of the strong mountain biking community.”
Interested in participating in the growing community of Oregon mountain bikers? Head on over to the Oakridge/Westfir area. If you would like a few ideas on where to get started, check out Randy’s previous blogs, and hit up some of his favorite trails.
