    Coming to PDX for the weekend..

    I'm visiting the city from Colorado with the wifey but would love to sneak out one day for a 2-3 hour ride.

    What's the best area within an hour of PDX?

    Good place to rent/demo a nice bike? I ride a full squish 29er here but am open to whatever bike is conducive to the area..

    Thanks for any info for this Oregon virgin!

    "Best" is subjective, so I would suggest that you could hit either the Hood River parks, or Sandy Ridge. Check both of those places out online and see what's more your style.

    Thinking about it more I don't know that hood river is good this time of year. Several threads say most spots are out of season for one reason or another. Check either sandy ridge, and check the "moving to Portland" recent thread on here for more trails (stub Stuart, Wilson river, hagg lake).

    Most of the "moving to" threads are a good place to look.

    fat tire is good to rent from. Sandy is easy to get to and navigate the trails with no guide. They are super fun as well. Post is tough to navigate if you dont have a guide and are under a time crunch. They are also most likely a dust bowl right now too. Hood river is a great place tho.
